Rolls-Royce has confirmed it'll name its new “high-sided car” the Cullinan – even though we just about knew that already.
Basically, the British marque has taken the ‘Project’ out of ‘Project Cullinan‘, naming its new SUV after a sought-after African diamond extracted within the early 1900s.
“The name Cullinan has been hiding in plain sight since we revealed it as the project name some years ago,” mentioned Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce.
“It is the most fitting name for our extraordinary new product. Cullinan is a motor car of such clarity of purpose, such flawless quality and preciousness, and such presence that it recalibrates the scale and possibility of true luxury.”
“Just like the Cullinan Diamond, the largest flawless diamond ever found, it emerges when it is perfect and exists above all others,” he added.
Underpinning the brand new fashion can be Rolls-Royce’s new aluminium spaceframe – dubbed the “Architecture of Luxury” – which debuted within the latest-generation Phantom limousine.
Expect the most recent in era and energetic protection, as observed within the new Phantom, along side a brand new four-wheel force gadget for when you wish to have to pass a muddy grass box to get to the loft.
The Cullinan has been confirmed for a marketplace release in 2019, alternatively, shall we see the overall automobile printed by means of the top of the 12 months.
