Our friends at carwow decided to envision Rolls-Royce's first ever SUV which like it or not has officially been confirmed.
The crossover/SUV craze is far from being over taking into account Bentley is about to launch its first high-riding model and even Lamborghini is playing around with the idea of finally putting the Urus into production. Rolls-Royce is one of the few remaining automakers that don’t have a luxobarge on stilts but it’s in the works and will likely come out sometime in 2018.
Rolls-Royce CEO Mueller-Oetvoes says test mules will hit the roads in the months to come and the car will use a proprietary aluminum-made spaceframe with a variety of components sourced from the upcoming BMW X7. There are virtually no details about how the car will look, but we do know it will be almost as long as the Phantom and will boast a front fascia described as being "very proud, very modern."
Don't expect to take the still unnamed Rolls-Royce SUV off-roading because it won't have the same 4x4 capabilities as a Land Rover for example. However, the British luxury marque has previously mentioned the car will be capable to "cross any terrain" and will be "worthy of carrying the Spirit of Ecstasy into the future."
