Rolls Royce has finally lifted the curtains about its long-awaited and highly anticipated SUV Cullinan. Rolls Royce finally uses a new language for its supersized vehicles. It is taking the visual designs from flagship like Phantom and applying them to light, tall-standing, off-road capable package. Comparing to the exterior of the vehicle that is upright and linear the cabin is impressive revealing the first mirror matched veneers, leather surfaces, fixed rear console along with a refrigerator, a whiskey decanter and champagne flutes.
The Cullinan carries a 563 hp, 6.75-lt, V-12 engine with 627 ft lbs of torque. The interior has a definite occasion since. Touching any of the stainless steel door handles will drop the vehicle by 1.5 inches. The rear door is shut via a button and opens backwards. There is 21.1 cubic ft luggage compartment that is separated by a glass partition.
Rolls Royce has been famous for its 114 years old ethos of “waftability”, which means to provide the rider with effortless forward propulsion and a magic carpet ride and the Cullinan is consistent with it. The Cullinan should deliver acceleration that is effortless in spite of its 3-ton weight due to the 563 hp, 6.75-lt, V-12 engine with 627 ft lbs of torque.
The company promises civilised travel over grass, mud or gravel with a 21.2 wading depth. There is an “everywhere” button in the vehicle which by pressing will let the car configure all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering system provided for low rpm travelling.
The Cullinan comes as the most price and expensive in the SUV market beating the Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga with a price of $325,000. The company will have to play in a market that is more crowded as big companies are diving into the market. Until then, Cullinan has done a proper job of introducing the Rolls Royce’s reputation.
