A bulging fender and simplistic taillight design is what we see in the first teaser image for RR Cullinan

A peek into the back seats of the Cullinan, Roll-Royce's first-ever SUV.
Not many Cullinan buyers will be too anxious about the 18.8mpg average or Carbon dioxide emissions of 341g/km, but we're told that the Architecture of Luxury platform has been built with electrification in mind, and that it will underpin every one of Rolls-Royce's future models.
The tailgate (the first time that this terminology has been used in reference to a Rolls-Royce, we should add) is split, as on the Range Rover, and inside it will incorporate what Rolls-Royce is calling its optional "lifestyle module".
In terms of design, the Cullinan is instantly recognisable as a Roller, thanks to that upright, imposing face featuring the signature Pantheon grille flanked by slim headlights with "eyebrow" LED daytime-running lights.
Step inside via the Cullinan's suicide doors and you'll find an interior built to Rolls-Royce's usual exceptional standards. The 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 (Rolls-Royce still refers to it as a 6.75-liter) produces 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, matching the Phantom's horsepower but losing 37 lb-ft of torque.
Filling the arches are massive 22-inch alloy wheels - Rolls-Royce is very big on wheel-to-body ratio. The center screen now responds to touch, but can also be controlled by the Spirit of Ecstasy controller that's been moved from the armrest pull-out to the center tunnel. Both setups position rear occupants higher than those in the front seat, so they can see above their chauffeur and out the expansive windshield. The Lounge Seat is your conventional three-seat bench, which also offers 40/20/40 folding.
Keep your eyes peeled to Roadshow in the coming days for more teasers and, eventually, actual information and pictures of Rolls-Royce's mega-posh SUV. Individual rear seating means two plush, powered seats, separated by a console that contains a refrigerator, drinks cabinet, whiskey glasses, champagne flutes, and decanter. An owner can raise the cargo floor to create a flat floor.
The Cullinan features four-wheel steering for improved agility and manoeuvrability, while also sporting the company's latest air suspension system to deliver Rolls-Royce's signature "Magic Carpet Ride".
One option includes two rear-facing seats. It also has a wading depth of 540mm.
It is the second Rolls-Royce to sit on the company's new aluminium architecture.
