ROLLS-ROYCE has announced it is to launch a sports utility vehicle (SUV).

In an open letter from chairman of the luxury carmaker Peter Schwarzenbauer, and chief executive Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, Rolls-Royce, which has a factory in Goodwood, has revealed it is developing the car.

The letter read: ‘We challenged our engineers and design team to create a different and exceptional new car.

‘We will take our time in developing and perfecting this new concept in luxury. Until then, rest assured, we are creating a motor car in the greatest traditions of our marque.’

Rolls-Royce plans to build a car that ‘offers the luxury of a Rolls-Royce in a vehicle that can cross any terrain,’ and describes it as ‘a high-bodied car, with an all-new aluminium architecture.’

The firm has not said when the model will move into production.
