In 1905 Cullinan, South Africa put its name on the map forever when the world’s largest diamond, weighing over 3,000 carats, was discovered there. That diamond, named after the city, is the fitting namesake for the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The Cullinan is the biggest Rolls-Royce ever made, and is the first SUV from the luxury car line. Let’s take a closer look at what sets this luxury vehicle apart from the pack.
Magic Carpet Ride
Rolls-Royce is known for the “magic carpet ride,” but the Cullinan takes that unique luxury experience to new heights. Riding in a Rolls-Royce has been compared to gliding on air. The Cullinan has a high-tech suspension system that intelligently adjusts itself based on road conditions observed by its stereoscopic camera. The system can make one tire press harder on the road when necessary for better balance. Whether on a smooth road or bumpy dirt, you’ll really feel like you’re gliding on air.
This SUV has four coach (also known as “suicide”) doors that open opposite each other. When both the front and back doors are open at once, the entire cabin can be wide open. This is one of the first luxurious cars that’s perfect for everyday activities like tailgating, off-roading, and even riding on the beach. If you open up all the doors, blast music, and bring food, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan can turn an excursion into a party.
Limo Or Leisure
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan can be purchased with one of two amazing back seat options. With the three-seat option, the back seats sit higher than the front seats, and the entire second row can be flattened for added storage space. With the two-seat option, the seats are separated by a rear-center console that is stocked with decanters, flukes, and a refrigerator. The two-seater back seat comes with a glass partition that makes it perfect for chauffeuring.
With all the space, this car is perfect for any recreational pastime you can imagine, and it can be customized to your hobby of choice. The Rolls-Royce Cullinan can be fitted with recreation modules that utilize the super-sized hatchback storage space to make the car better suited to your unique excursions. For example, two detachable leather sets can be added to the area as a viewing suite, which is perfect for outdoor concerts.
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is a perfect marriage of luxury and recreation. As mentioned earlier, the smart suspension system allows the car to adjust to any road condition. This car is built for off-roading and includes an everywhere button. When pressed, the car adapts in order to tread water that is up to 540mm deep and activates powerful four-wheel driveability. This is a Rolls-Royce that was built to get dirty.
If a car can go through water, rocks, and any other condition you can imagine, it only makes sense that the headlights should be powerful. The LED laser headlights pierce up to 600 meters ahead of the car. There is even more smart technology within the lights that allows each diode in the lights to be focused and into different directions and brightness levels. These lights give drivers the kind of dependability and precision needed in a luxury SUV.
Hand-Painted Pin Stripe
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is highlighted by big, bold, curvy surfaces and lines. The car has a very sleek and clean look, but it also has a classy design feature to break up the monotony. Although the car is extremely customizable, many of the factory models come with a hand-painted pinstripe going down the side. In most models, the vibrant color of the pinstripe is also the color of the interior accents.
Keeping It Classic
Although The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is groundbreaking in so many ways, it is true to its Rolls-Royce roots in many other ways. In the door jambs of each car, there is a signature Rolls-Royce umbrella. The umbrellas come in the same accent colors as the pinstripe and the interior accents. This little touch gives that classic air of Rolls-Royce luxury to this very unique new car.
Car Of Your Dreams
The Cullinan is offered with unlimited customization under the Rolls-Royce Bespoke program. This means that anyone willing to pay for it can get virtually anything they can imagine inside their Rolls-Royce. The Rolls-Royce website mentions that some buyers have made their favorite tree into wood-grain interior finishes. Buyers can even have custom paints made directly by Rolls-Royce craftsmen. It’s very possible to personally design your own Rolls-Royce Cullinan from soup to nuts, ensuring that it isn’t like any other car on the road.
How Powerful Is It?
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is dripping with features, but there’s one thing all luxury cars have in common: POWER! How does this groundbreaking luxury SUV stack up to similar cars when it comes to speed and power? The car is decked out with a twelve-cylinder engine that has more than 550 horsepower. The automatic car comes with an eight-speed gear shift that goes low for off-roading and high for top speeds.
