Rolls-Royce, now owned by BMW, has launched its first SUV — the Cullinan.
The Cullinan is named after the world's largest diamond and like its namesake, it is huge. It stands at six feet tall.
Rolls-Royce says the Cullinan is the real thing. And that too many SUVs are called so without really being able to go off-road.
To back up its claim, Rolls-Royce has released a number of YouTube videos made in partnership with National Geographic. The videos show the Cullinan being bashed around the planet... Alright, maybe not bashed but see for yourself:

Now to what the Cullinan can do:
It can wade through water 21 inches high.
It comes with night vision, including pedestrian and wildlife warnings, a drowsy-driving alert, a four-camera parking system, helicopter view, crash-avoidance systems of course, and Wi-Fi.
The Cullinan has a top speed of 155 miles per hour or 250 kmph.
How much will it set you back? 325,000 American dollars or about Rs 2.2 crore.
You will however still have to wait a few months for it. The Cullinan is expected to hit Indian shores sometime towards the end of 2018.
