Rolls-Royce and recognizes that arises in the SUV range

Rolls-Royce_Wraith_700Rumored for months the possibility that Rolls-Royce is posing an upscale SUV in its range of vehicles. In fact, although the contenders have not yet launched their proposals could almost talk about the explosion of a new segment, before you start, is beginning to be overcrowded.

The news here is the recognition, by the company’s CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös (as they are pronounced) that this possibility is real and not just a mere rumor. We may be far from the final confirmation of the possible new model, but it gives the feeling that Rolls-Royce did not want to miss the celebration that is about to begin. For now, we take a brief look at the guests, which are few.

A few days ago we learned the details of the proposed technological Jaguar SUV, the new Jaguar C-X17 prototype aluminum construction on its new platform called IQ [Al]. Perhaps this future SUV not reach the level of what could be a future Rolls-Royce floating, but

Bentley_EXP_9_F_700A few months ago, with no little controversy for its original forms, Bentley off the pace with another proposal even more exclusive, the prototype called Bentley EXP 9 F whose arrival on the market is confirmed for 2016.

Not far from the previous two, but with a far more diabolical character, the Lamborghini Urus (from 2017 on their screens) facet answer the racing between end luxury SUV. His proposal is to convert to the almighty Porsche Cayenne vulgar.

Lie seems just a few years ago, but even Aston Martin has dared to put on the table a concept in the same vein, with the Maserati Levante, whose arrival is scheduled for 2014-2015.

lamborghini_urus_11For the purists, they are all brands to a greater or lesser extent are betraying their classical values ​​to swallow a new piece of market. It may be recalled here that locals and tore their clothes with the arrival of the Porsche Cayenne, as a kind of treason to the spirit of the brand, and there we have it with sales figures (with treason or not) give reason to Porsche from the economic standpoint. And neither seem to have diminished the enthusiastic admiration of the other models.

Once seated that precedent, considering how the segment is warming, and given the availability within the BMW group of platforms to support this type of vehicle (I’m thinking of the X5) the truth is that the recognition of Mr. Müller-Ötvös seems more likely than ever.

We look forward to events, then.
