You’ve got seen LandCruisers and Patrols bashing over the dunes of Dubai and past, yeah? Nicely, overlook these, as a result of that is the brand new benchmark.
Proper right here is the place I may insert a (unexpectedly alliterative) joke about which soiled huge dune basher Darth Vader would terrorise Tatooine in earlier than dashing to Dagobah.
Or, contemplating we’re speaking about dunes, maybe a joke on what the Duke of Caladan would tour the spice mines of Arrakis in…
In fact, right here in the actual world, the jokes are hardly wanted in any respect. The variety of movies yow will discover on YouTube of parents within the Center East launching over the tip of a dune hill in huge V8 Toyota LandCruisers and Nissan Patrols (or their Lexus and Infiniti kinds) is nearly innumerable.
Now, there’s this: the $685,000, 420kW/850Nm Rolls-Royce Cullinan tearing it up in solely one of the best sand-blasting method.
Maybe quick on information this week (simple sufficient if you solely have a number of fashions on supply), the native Rolls Royce company delivered these photographs to our inbox – and I used to be blissful to stay vicariously for a couple of minutes via the exploits of this “native patron”.
The discharge reads: “An area patron of luxurious took his Sapphire Black Cullinan and introduced ‘supreme liberty’ to life as he took the world-famous Rolls-Royce ‘Magic Carpet Trip’ off-road and onto the swish and imposing dunes.
“Discovering new horizons on the golden sands, the outcrops and the steep sandy cliffs, Cullinan turned a pressure of nature, and led by the Spirit of Ecstasy, surfed over excessive and low terrains with absolute authority. Undulating easily and quietly, Cullinan floats throughout this unforgiving panorama, making the journey seamless and magical.”
It is only a totally different universe for some of us, is not it…
Get pleasure from these photographs of Native Patron’s desert delights!
