The rumoured Rolls-Royce SUV has been given the digital treatment, giving us a taste of what a future crossover might look like for the luxury carmaker.

Lutz Valdeig from German design group Atelier-Valdeig created the images, operating on the idea that a future Rolls-Royce SUV would be more understated than its rivals.

The images show two alternatives for the front styling, a small ‘lift-back’ style tailgate and what appear to be ‘suicide' doors for the rear.

Despite the likely inclusion of all-wheel-drive (if only as an option) for a future Rolls-Royce SUV, ground clearance has been kept to a minimum in these examples, while the wheelbase is still at an acceptable length for a ‘luxury’ car.

These images may be as close as we get to seeing a Rolls-Royce SUV being built however, as the carmaker is yet to officially confirm that it is working on the new model.

In April last year, Rolls-Royce boss Torsten Muller-Otvos reportedly said “We have no plans to produce an SUV, definitely not.”

This comment was apparently followed up in September with a backflip from Muller-Otvos, who spoke about a future SUV at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

“We are intensively thinking about entering the SUV segment,” Mr Mueller-Oetvoes said.

“The segment is very interesting. It has been incredibly stable during the crisis, and I think a luxury niche will develop.”

The project appears closer to reality now, with Muller-Otvos reportedly confirming in October last year that the Rolls-Royce design team had begun work on sketches for a future SUV, but a finished product would be several years away.
