Since breaking cover mid-last year, the Rolls-Royce’s SUV project dubbed the Cullinan has been kept under close covers.

Well it would appear that the holidays are officially over with engineers spotted testing the prototype SUV on the Nurburgring this week in an attempt to ride the curtails of the high demand for luxury soft roaders today.

Rolls-Royce will be facing some stiff competition though with the current crop of highly capable SUVs including the record-breaking Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV and Lamborghini’s Urus all vying to take the crown of practical performance.

The Cullinan will borrow some of its underpinnings from the Phantom including the big V12 engine, modified aluminium platform and interior design whilst the “high-riding” vehicle’s weight will be rather hefty at around two tonnes – not exactly a Nurburgring-suitable figure.

We’ll let you be the judge of that with the video below.
