After years of teasing, Rolls-Royce reveals the Cullinan SUV

Need proof that SUVs are here to stay? This week brings it in the form of the Rolls-Royce of SUVs – the all-new Cullinan. Designed from the ground up to give the jet set a taste of visceral, boots-on-the-ground adventure without requiring them to give up necessities like plush heated seats and ice-cold champagne, the new SUV brings ultra-premium comfort to rock-strewn canyons, undulating mountain roads and dusty desert expanses. And it should get you noticed in the spa parking lot, too. read more

Bomb Proof SUV

The owner of a run-of-the-mill Toyota wasn’t satisfied with the style and protection the car came with, and spent $160,000 to add a champagne bar, a widescreen TV and grenade proof armor.

The Toyota Sequoia SUV, which retails at $48,000, has been converted to withstand driving over a landmine as well as the lavish additions on the inside.

Its exterior remains as anonymous as before, but open the door and the changes are far more noticeable.

Expensive wheels: The SUV already costs £30,000 but it wasn't enough for its owner who spent another £100,000 to convert it into a luxurious - and bomb proof - supercarThe SUV already costs $48,000 but it wasn’t enough for its owner who spent another $160,000 to convert it into a luxurious – and bomb proof – supercar. The result is a fortress on wheels which includes a widescreen TV, wood trim, leather thrones, champagne compartments and mounted tablet computers on the side. The outside has been armored to withstand 7.62x51mm rifle rounds, hand grenades and landmines.

Kim Pemberton, director of sales at Lexani Motor Cars said: ‘It is the only Toyota Sequoia we have done although the owner has another one coming next week as well as a Sprinter for us to do.7.62 x 51mm

‘The most popular models are Cadillac Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburbans, and GMC Yukon Denali.

‘Our client base comes from affluent professionals and heads-of-state who appreciate luxury but also want something unique that very few will have.’

‘The cost for a Lexani Motors interior on an SUV generally runs around $150,000 give or take depending on options.

‘The interiors are handmade by our craftsmen in house and we are a small boutique company so we don’t mass produce our products like many.’

‘When we are through with our executive vehicles they not only offer the luxurious appointments the client has chosen in designing their environment but also will function as a mobile office.’
