Just when you thought Rolls-Royce Motor Cars couldn’t possibly fill any new niche, along rolls in the Cullinan ready to give other luxury SUVs a run for their gas money. Unlike former Rolls Royce models which were named after spectres, the Cullinan’s unique moniker was inspired by the world’s largest rough diamond which was discovered in a South African mine back in 1905. Featuring state-of-the-art technology and over-the-top details, the Cullinan represents as the pinnacle of ultimate luxury in the SUV market.
Designed for discerning drivers who refuse to accept any of life’s limitations or compromises, the Cullinan is an ideal choice for daring individuals who will eagerly take on the road less travelled in pursuit of life’s most enriching experiences.”They are the new pioneers, and for them it’s about their sense of adventure and daring in how they live their experiences. This approach to life demands a motor car that can go-anywhere in ultimate luxury and style,” says Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce.
From journeying off the beaten track to navigating your way through the busy streets of Kuala Lumpur, the Cullinan promises to get you wherever you need to be while reaching your intended destination in effortless style and supreme comfort. Powering this formidable beast on wheels is a 6.75 litre twin-turbo V12 Rolls-Royce engine that delivers a staggering 563 horsepower and up to 850Nm of torque. To help this SUV achieve the signature Rolls-Royce “Magic Carpet Ride” experience, the Cullinan has been kitted with a new lighter architecture, the latest generation of self-levelling air suspension and a special 4-Camera system for avoiding any unexpected bumps and potholes along the way.
Adding to all this spaciousness are the rear seats which can comfortably hold up to three passengers. There’s also an option for a second bespoke rear configuration involving two individual seats separated by a Fixed Rear Centre Console housing a discreet drinks cabinet complete with official Rolls-Royce whisky glasses and decanter, champagne flutes and refrigerator. If that alone isn’t a reason to toast to greatness, we don’t know what is. The rear passenger seats can also be folded down completely to free up extra space via buttons placed in the boot or rear door pocket.
Other additional surprises that make the Cullinan truly worth the splurge are the suite of specialised modules available through the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective which has been specifically developed to cater to all kinds of recreational pursuits. Recreation Modules containing a motorised drawer housing specific equipment and paraphernalia can be easily slotted and plugged into the boot of Cullinan; while the Viewing Suite which prompts two leather-finished chairs and a small cocktail table to emerge gracefully from a cavity hidden beneath the boot floor is ideal for spending quiet moments simply appreciating the great outdoors. So, if you can afford to dream it, you can count on Rolls-Royce to make those dreams a reality.
