NZ4WD - - NEWS -

Lux­ury car maker Rolls Royce has fi­nally re­vealed an au­tho­rised photo ( al­beit in camo trim) of its aboutto- be- launched Cul­li­nan SUV – as well as de­tails of its launch pro­gramme, dubbed The Final Chal­lenge. The ‘Chal­lenge hon­ours the ground­break­ing work 100 years ago now of com­pany founders, the Hon­ourable Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce, as they took top hon­ours in rig­or­ous pub­lic adventures such as the Scot­tish Re­li­a­bil­ity Tri­als, the London to Ed­in­burgh event and the Alpine Tri­als to pub­li­cise the re­li­a­bil­ity of their orig­i­nal mod­els. The Cul­li­nan one be­gan in the High­lands of Scot­land on Wednes­day April 04 be­fore head­ing through the Alpine snow­fields of Aus­tria, the deserts of the Mid­dle East and fi­nally across some of the tough­est ter­rain in the United States. These will in­clude mul­ti­ple off- road chal­lenges and miles of rough ter­rain. The Cul­li­nan and crew were ac­com­pa­nied on The Final Chal­lenge by ex­plorer and pho­tog­ra­pher Cory Richards, Na­tional Geo­graphic’s Ad­ven­turer of the Year in 2012. The Na­tional Geo­graphic team doc­u­mented the journey with daily up­dates broad­cast from the spec­tac­u­lar, farflung lo­ca­tions he and the crew en­counter. View­ers can fol­low the Rolls- Royce Cul­li­nan’s Final Chal­lenge on www. na­tion­al­geo­graphic.com/ roll­sroycecul­li­nan and on Rolls- Royce so­cial me­dia ac­counts as well as www.
