Rolls-Royce announced that it is going to be making a luxury SUV.
The British automaker said in a statement that it will build “A car that offers the luxury of a Rolls-Royce in a vehicle that can cross any terrain.”
The vehicle will be a “A high-bodied car with an all-new aluminum architecture.”
Currently the company only produces three cars – the Phantom sedan, Wraith fastback, and Ghost.
There are no pictures of what the SUV will look like yet.

The decision to add a super high-end SUV to their lineup comes as its main rival Bentley announced it would be making its own SUV too, called the Bentavga.
In fact, the number of carmakers that don’t produce SUV’s is beginning to shrink, with exotic brands such as Lamborghini and Maserati working on one.
