Over the weekend I came out of a restaurant at night and spotted a black cab so stepped out to wave it down - only to realise it was a Rolls Royce Cullinan.

Based on the owners gestures he clearly wasn't amused, but what were Rolls Royce thinking of launching a car that looks so similar to a black cab.

It would be a bit ironic if Geely, the Chinese maker of the black cabs took Rolls Royce to court for producing a copycat vehicle.

I've driven the Cullinan and honestly cannot see where the value is.

It looks like the design project of a 9 year old. Totally unusable as you could not drive it anywhere without looking an utter cock.

If you want a Range Rover - buy a Range Rover.

It’s amazing how super expensive big SUV’s outsell their lower sportier siblings

The Porsche Cayenne outsells every other Porsche model put together

I personally don’t get it.

The Bentley one looks like a black cab as well
The Cayenne looks a bit numb and early versions looked like a duck billed platypus

The only one that I think has made a decent job of styling is the new Lamborghini Anus although I wouldn’t drive one. ooo

These care style icons for those in other countries who want to conspicuously display their wealth. They may look like a SUV, have good off-road credentials and be well made, but in my view they are luxurious busses.

We are not their target market because we enjoy driving and understand cars. But we should not dismiss them as without the revenue they generate their manufacturers may not survive.

Our local Porsche Centre normally lends us 3 vehicles to act as course cars - the extra space in these SUVs comes in handy for carting broken bits back down the hill smile
