Producer once said about the two versions - standard and extended.

Rolls-Royce is gearing up to introduce its first-ever SUV later this year, called the Cullinan, and has begun, it seems, to roll out the teasers.

The new Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII measures in at 5,762mm long, 2,018mm wide, 1,646mm tall and has a 3,552mm long wheelbase. All this has been made to keep the auto silent on the inside and retain its tag of being the "most silent motor vehicle in the world". Legend has it that the Maharaja of Mysore ordered seven cars at a time, while The Last Nizam of Hyderabad, Sir Mir Osman Khan Siddiqi Asaf Jah VII, purchased over 50 Rolls-Royce motor cars over his lifetime. To live upto that claim, Rolls Royce has equipped the auto with 6mm two-layer glazing all around it, alongside more than 130kg of sound insulation, large aluminium joints, and use of high absorption materials.

So far, we know the Cullinan will share the same platform as the Phantom and will probably be powered by the same 6.75-liter V12 engine, too.

Top aides HR McMaster, John Kelly may leave over tensions with Trump
In his nomination hearings, McMaster needed a waiver from the Senate to continue on active duty in the White House post. McMaster has previously been the target of conservative activists who questioned his loyalty to the Trump agenda.

The super premium auto is powered by an all-new by 6.75 litre twin-turbocharged V12 petrol engine that will deliver a maximum power of 563 HP and 900 Nm of torque from just 1700 rpm, capable of achieving 0-100 km/h acceleration in just 5.4 seconds with the help of seamless 8-speed and satellite-aided transmission. "When Rolls Royce acoustic test engineers reviewed the results of road and vibration tests, the sound levels were so low, they had to check if their instruments were calibrated correctly", a company statement said.

While the design language may be very Rolls-Royce but it's still an evolution over the predecessor while at the same time conforming to the company's roots.

Rolls-Royce has started to attract a new range of entrepreneurs and young professionals into the brand's fold in India.

According to the report, the pricing depends on customer specifications, with all Phantoms built bespoke.
