Royce has revealed a prototype mule of their off roader christened “Project
Cullinan” to show the world and the stakeholders the progress in development.
The Project Cullinan will be seen on public roads for the first time this week

engineering mule is based on a shortened Phantom Series II body fitted with,

facilities, as well as on public roads will be the first phase of development
tests for the project. Also during the development tenure, equal amount of time
will be spent on testing various on and off-road terrains.
