2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan

For folks scandalized by the price of new Cadillac and Lincoln SUVs, we have interesting news for you. There is a collection of ultra-luxury people movers hitting the road that make $100,000 Escalades look like economy cars. Crossovers from the likes of Bentley, Rolls-Royce, and even Lamborghini are now available, and the starting prices for these rare utes may startle.

1947 Bentley Mark VI Drophead Coupe

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2002 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Bentleys were fast sport tourers—absolutely dependable, but loud. By 1931, when Bentley Motors went into receivership, its larger cars were competing with Rolls-Royce. In a surprise move, Rolls bought its English competitor to prevent future rivalry.

Rolls-Royce Dawn Wood Trim

2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn with Full Canadel Paneling option package

The 2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn we recently had through the Consumer Guide head office had a lengthy list of optional equipment that pushed its $341,125 base price all the way up to a bottom line of $413,030. We’ll do the math for you…that’s $71,905 in options alone—enough to buy a very nicely equipped 2017 BMW 5-Series sedan.

Lincoln MKT Hearse

For years, Cadillac had a death grip on the funeral-vehicle market. While statistics are elusive, it’s safe to say that through the most of the Nineties, Caddy was the dominant player in the last-ride game.

Rent a Lamborghini

For Eric, renting a Lamborghini from Imagine Lifestyles in Miami was a transforming experience.

“I felt like I had gone from a regular Joe to Joe DiMaggio!” he beamed.

Car Logo HistoryThrough their logos, many automakers have created a dazzling world of wonder. In logo land, you’ll discover roman gods, prancing horses, and mystical beasts—as well as religious themes such as the Holy Trinity and the Christian Crusades. It’s a universe of stars and planets, ships and rockets, diamonds and domination. One emblem, which is simply a crooked letter, symbolizes a trustworthy handshake.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost that Tom recently drove at Road America in Wisconsin.

With a sticker price of $356,290 nicely equipped, the Rolls-Royce Ghost ought to be refined. And after just a few short miles behind the wheel, I was impressed by the car’s overall silkiness. But, while the ride is smooth to the point of mimicking large watercraft, it is the drivetrain polish that really got my attention.

We’re anxious to see how the coupe compares to the the Rolls-Royce Ghost sedan (pictured).

no secret that Rolls-Royce has been working up a coupe version of its smaller sedan, the Ghost, and Britain’s Autocar magazine has now given us a good idea of what’s in store. For starters, the new 2-door will bow at the March 2013 Geneva Auto Salon in Switzerland, ahead of a summertime production start at the R-R facility in Goodwood, England. First deliveries are slated for late fall, presumably for European customers. No word yet on U.S. timing, but we’d guess the car will be available before New Year’s Day 2014, which means it could arrive here with a 2015 designation.
