  • Rolls Royce Cullinan teaser image

Today at 12PM (BST) Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will reveal its highly anticipated SUV - the Cullinan.

This is the first time we've seen any uncovered part.

Based on a, the Cullinan is the second model after the Phantom VIII to be based on the new "Architecture of Luxury" platform, also known as the aluminium spaceframe platform.

Watch the reveal of the Roll-Royce Cullinan SUV here live at Noon on 10 May 2018 as Rolls-Royce officially reveal what will be the world's most luxurious SUV.

One very Rolls feature is the coach doors which wrap a little way under the auto.

Combined with all-wheel drive, the Cullinan should come equipped with the same twin-turbo 6.75-litre V12 as the flagship all-wheel drive, generating around the same 419kW/900Nm as the Phantom. The infotainment system can also be controlled through the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy controller on the center console.

Disney Might Not Buy Fox (And X-Men And Deadpool) After All
Comcast's decision to bid for some of Fox's assets with cash came several months after it had an all-stock offer rejected. Comcast shares were down 1.5 percent to $31.90, while Disney shares were down 0.5 percent to $102.00.

The passengers in the rear Pavilion Seating sit higher than those in front so they don't miss out on the views ahead. Another telltale Rolls-Royce detail comes in knowing the rear headrests move up when folding the seatback so that the headrests don't leave unsightly imprints in the cushions. The rear doors open backward and can shut themselves via a small button, à la Rolls's sedans and coupes. The famous "power reserve" dial has been digitised, while other information displayed includes that for driver assistance, navigation, cruise control, fuel and temperatures levels. The height difference prevents cargo from sliding all the way forward when the rear seats are lowered. Only the Lounge Seat can electrically fold down, and while the loading bay isn't entirely flat, Rolls has created some underfloor storage for the parcel shelf, plus a ramp in the boot floor that can be raised to slide longer items in.

One of the more eccentric options is the Cullinan Viewing Suite.

Meanwhile, the Individual Seats (pictured) offer the familiar Rolls-Royce limousine experience, with the centre pew replaced by a fixed centre console incorporating a drinks cabinet - including Rolls-Royce whiskey glasses, decanter, champagne flutes and a cool box.

Supporting the new body is a similar air-suspension system to that of the Phantom, sporting continually self-adjusting dampers that react to both camera and satellite data to try to recreate the "magic carpet" ride quality famous of Rolls-Royce models. The Cullinan can go 1.7 inches deeper into the flood than the Bentley Bentayga, but comes up short of the 35.4-inch wading depth of a Range Rover.

Previously, the manufacturer has shared images of the vehicle being put through its paces on challenging terrains ranging from the desert to snow tracks.
