SUV Rolls-Royce will be developed on a new platform, which will be based on the aluminum alloy. It’s supposed the novelty to be equipped with an upgraded petrol 6.8-liter Phantom’s V12 motor. The main features of the unit – elasticity, strength and quiet operation. It is possible that the off-road vehicle will get a hybrid installation. Rolls-Royce Company is going to test the new crossover on all types of surfaces and to achieve maximum noise reduction in the cabin, as well as at other models of the brand. In addition, Torster Muller-Otvos, the head of Rolls-Royce, said that Cullinan would own chassis, not the platform of a BMW.
