Rolls Royce launches its first ever SUV priced at £250,000

After years of teasing and testing, Rolls-Royce has unveiled its first SUV, a boat of a vehicle called the Cullinan that’s named after the largest diamond ever discovered. “The most anticipated car of 2018 and, quite possibly, the most anticipated Rolls-Royce of all time,” according to Rolls-Royce, the Cullinan goes on sale later this year for around $325,000 — roughly 1/100th of the estimated value of the diamond.

The all-wheel drive Cullinan will be plenty powerful — with a 6.75L twin-turbo V12 engine that makes 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque — and it’s being positioned by Rolls-Royce as an adept offroad vehicle. (The company says the Cullinan has been “tested to destruction all over the planet.”)
