The most revered luxury car brand of all is taking a leaf out of Bentley's book and expanding its range to include an SUV. Here are some spy shots of Rolls-Royce's forthcoming product, called the Cullinan.

Some will find it difficult to fathom, but Rolls-Royce is the latest brand to get on the SUV bandwagon. Given the success of the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Range Rover Autobiography and recent market introduction of the Bentley Bentayga, it's completely understandable why the British manufacturer would want to explore the super-luxury SUV segment, even though we are certain the Goodwood-based manufacturer's product will sit atop it.
While Rolls-Royce itself released some spy shots of its forthcoming product some time ago, here we're getting a proper look at the shape and dimensions of the Cullinan. The front is unmistakably Rolls-Royce and if you look closely, it appears that access to the cabin is provided in traditional cabinet-style doors.
This new offering from Rolls-Royce is likely to come to market in 2018 and like its other products, you will pay a small fortune for it. Sure, it costs more than several houses, but it's virtually guaranteed to be the ultimate luxury vehicle and feature every convenience feature that its well-heeled clientele will expect.
