The Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV has been spied once again, but this time the so-called “High Sided Motor Car” was seen wearing less camouflage than ever before.

These images show the Cullinan riding on the back of a BMW Group transporter. This is far from the first time we’ve seen a Cullinan prototype in the wild, however the vehicle pictured here appears to be much further along in the production cycle than others. The rear half of the vehicle is particularly exposed, with the tailgate design, rear taillights, exhaust tips and hatch spoiler all on clear display. The photos also give us a good look at the tall, upright side profile and Phantom-inspired chrome radiator grille.

If you’re curious as to what could be in store for the Cullinan, look no further than the 2018 Phantom. It will utilize the new Phantom’s aluminum spaceframe and will likely tap the sedan for its 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 and eight-speed automatic transmission as well. The Cullinan should also feature a similarly styled interior as the Phantom with comparably lavish appointments.

We’re expecting the Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV to debut at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show in March. For now, check it out in the gallery above.
