Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has released images of its new Project Cullinan test car. And we must say that this is quite a looker. The test car is based on a shortened platform of the Series II Rolls Royce Phantom. It has been created to test a new all-wheel drivetrain and suspension setup for the brand’s upcoming SUV.

This is the first time uber luxury car maker Rolls-Royce is attempting such a feat. Needless to say, Rolls-Royce is looking to incorporate the effortless ride dynamics and the brand’s ‘magic carpet’ ride of its road going cars in its first ever vehicle with go-anywhere capabilities.

Project Cullinan will be subjected to equal test distances both on-road as well as off-road to ensure that the upcoming Rolls-Royce SUV will be perfectly capable of going everywhere while offering the same sort of comfort and drive dynamics.

The first set of tests for Project Cullinan will focus on the vehicle’s on-road behaviour in the form of suspension tests across all sorts of international road surface samples at test facilities to ensure than the vehicle retains that trademark Rolls-Royce cross continental comfort cruising ability. Some of these test surfaces will consist of Belgian Pavé, cobblestones, corrugated concrete, noise development and measurement surfaces, resonance road, and acceleration bumps.

This Project Cullinan prototype Phantom looks rather menacing with its raised stance, more space around wheelarchs and that tall rear spoiler! But it looks equally comical with those tiny rear suicide doors as we accustomed to seeing much larger units on the Phantom saloon. Nevertheless, this test car seems to have its underpinnings in place for the development of the high bodied all-terrain vehicle that is to be born.

Rolls-Royce’ new SUV will compete against other upcoming uber luxury SUVs such as the Bentley Bentayga, BMW X7, Jaguar F-Pace, Lamborghini Urus and rumour has it, an Audi Q9 and a Mercedes-Maybach SUV based on the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class as well!
