Interesting that they think they can amortize an all new, completely independent, architecture.

If true, it should be interesting to see what happens with a bespoke platform rather than "aluminumized" 7 Series variant.

Well we know that next large BMWs will go very lightweight construction, so "not related to any BMW" could also mean "not related to any current BMW". Even if it is "independent", most of development of new construction methods and materials will amortize through BMW, there are not that many ways to build an alloy chassis and adapt factories for that (and the current Roller's body in white are already built in some German BMW factory and then shipped to the UK). Plus expensive stuff to develop, like crash structures. I bet it will - like the upcoming 7 series is rumored to - have carbon bits as well...

Talking Rolls Royce Cullinan

Seems Rolls Royce could not wait for spy photographers to snap its upcoming Cullinan SUV (sorry, "high-sided vehicle"), and just decided to take the spy shots themselves:

And yeah, it looks a lot like the Bentley Dominator from the mid-1990s!

I'm sure it'll drive well and solve world hunger and all, but it's looking, to me, like the RR version of a Navigator.

Well, it looks better than the Bentayga, but so do most things.

Ungainly looking, but then again the people buying it only want the ornament on the hood.

Too bad the front end's the worst part of the car (IMHO)!

I'm also getting major Range Rover vibes from the profile, which is not a bad thing at all, IMHO.

Hmm so part of the design was caught here, with the low suspension setting, it kind of looks like a wagon.
