The first ever four-wheel drive Rolls-Royce debuts this summer, and its sales will start in 2019.
Rolls-Royce has officially confirmed the name for its first-ever AWD model with high permeability. The novelty will retain the same name with which it was announced three years ago — Cullinan.
“We were inspired by the millennial history of the Cullinan diamond, and this name reveals the facets of a new car. It speaks of endurance and absolute strength in critical conditions. It reflects the bold pioneering spirit of Charles Rolls and innovative approach of sir Henry Royce. It embodies the idea of limitless luxury, rare and precious, which will surround you wherever you went,” said CEO of Rolls-Royce Torsten müller-Ötvös.
The basis of the crossover Rolls-Royce will fall ultralight aluminum architecture, which will later be applied on other models of the British brand. According to preliminary data, Cullinan will receive the unit from the Phantom of the new generation — a 6.75-liter V12 engine with two turbines, outstanding 671 HP and 900 Nm of torque. Transmission — eight-speed “automatic” ZF.
Public premiere of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan will be held in summer this year, but the first customers will receive the car not earlier than in 2019.
