Goodwood, West Sussex - With development of the Cullinan, thc first SUV from Rolls-Royce, nearing its conclusion ahead of the car’s global debut later in 2018, the maker has teamed up with National Geographic and adventure photographer Cory Richards to get extra mileage (if you’ll forgive the worst pun ever published on IOL Motoring) out of the final series of durability tests. 

As the Cullinan test mule tackles a series of of punishing terrains and altitude changes in the Highlands of Scotland, the gigantic dunes of the Arabian Desert, and the toughest landscapes in the United States, they’ll be publishing a series of videos by Richards entitled the final challenge, featuring the spectacular scenery and special people he meets along the way.

Whatever goes wrong - and something always does on an epic series of challenges such as this - it’ll all happen right in the public eye, and you’ll be able to see it here, starting right now.
