Rolls-Royce’s Upcoming SUV Won’t Look Like This, But Maybe It Should

Rolls-Royce has been very clear that its forthcoming crossover won’t be an SUV. Elegant, sure. Sporty… er, maybe. But certainly not utilitarian.

An “all-terrain, high-sided vehicle” is what they’re calling it over in Goodwood. But what if it were a real utility vehicle?

Then it might look something a little like this. A lot like this, if we were so fortunate. It’s called the Rolls-Royce Haunt, in keeping with the marque’s ghostly naming scheme. Only it doesn’t actually exist. It’s a rendering from Brazilian designer Kleber Silva.

As you can see, the design calls for a four-door, short-bed pickup truck – not unlike, say, the Lamborghini LM002 or a Hummer H2 SUT… only not quite that utilitarian, and with distinctly Rolls-Royce design traits.

It has a “pantheon” grille, Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, suicide rear doors, two-tone paintjob… just how we’d expect a Rolls-Royce truck to look, if ever the ultra-lux automaker were to make one. And looking at it, we can’t help but wonder if it should.

Maybe then you’d see owners taking their Rollses hunting (or hawking) like they used to, instead of having to “slum it” in a Range Rover or Bentley Bentayga.

    O my god, please don’t make such a car. That is not a dignified RR

    May be it should not!

    That looks terrible but I pictured a Rolls Royce SUV being more like a Range Rover than a cross over. A high riding wagon just doesn’t seem to fit the brand

  • Autoexperte

    Someone just wanted to do a shit, but a poor rendering thrown out a Fiat Toro and parts of the new Phantom will never be a Rolls-Royce

  • Eduardo Palandi

    no, it shouldn’t.

    No, it should not by any way or any mean!

    How about no, this looks like a pickup truck the Chinese would make.

    Internet trolls are supposed to write comments, not articles.

    Surely you are only publishing this to piss us off 🙂

  • no25

    Out of all the vehicles to base this render on, they chose a Fiat? Really?


    How about no?

    Maybe it shouldn’t.

    No, no, NO! Just because you ‘could’ doesn’t mean you should.

    If so, we will have reached a new low in automobiles. And just when I didn’t think it could get worse…
