The Rolls-Royce Cullian not only represents a new direction for the Goodwood-based manufacturer, but a new benchmark as the pinnacle of SUV motoring.
The Cullinan was revealed in 2018 and was named after the largest diamond ever discovered - now part of the Crown Jewel collection. Sitting in between the Ghost and Phantom, this is the first SUV produced by Rolls-Royce, and it has proven a good move with the Cullinan becoming an extremely popular model. Full to the brim with technology to make the car as comfortable, convenient, and luxurious as possible, the Cullinan does not compromise in any aspect. From the engineering to the quality of materials used, it does not get much better than a Rolls-Royce. Powered by a 6.75L twin-turbo V12 engine pumping out 563hp, the Cullinan has some performance behind it, despite weighing over 2.6 Tonnes.
Taking the opulence and luxury that Rolls-Royce are known for and applying it to an SUV for the first time is a formula for success. Sporting the companies trademark coach doors, ‘Magic Carpet Ride’ suspension, and using the finest materials sourced from all around the world, the Cullinan is the ultimate SUV to travel in style and comfort. As with every Rolls-Royce, there is the option of endless customisation, with a plethora of options to spec the car exactly how you want it, as well as unlimited ways to configure the paintwork and interior – if you can think of it, Rolls-Royce can produce it.
On top of being the ultimate road car, the Cullinan is more than capable off-road, as well as in adverse conditions such as in the snow and ice. Featuring four-wheel steering, air suspension, and for the first time in a Rolls-Royce, all-wheel drive, the Cullinan is an extremely capable vehicle if you dare to take one of the world’s most expensive SUVs off the beaten track.
The Cullinan also comes in a Black Badge variant, a special edition with a slight increase in power to 592hp, and re-styling of the interior and exterior. The Black Badge features black painted accents, where previously they were chrome, as well as a carbon fibre trim in the interior.
Overall, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan is the ultimate SUV – sitting far above its competitors in terms of price, luxury, comfort, and all-round style. It is the perfect entrance to the SUV market, and ushers in a new era of Rolls Royce.
