This is the moment we’ve been waiting for. Rolls-Royce is poised to unveil an unprecedented new SUV. The Cullinan has been in development for years in order to make it unparalleled in the luxury 4×4 world. It is named after the largest diamond ever found, one that also happens to reside in the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.
Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos says:
“The super-luxury lifestyle is evolving and Rolls-Royce is in the lead. Luxury is no longer an urban concept. More and more it is about embracing and experiencing the wider world. Our customers expect to go everywhere in luxury, effortlessly and without compromise, conquering the most challenging terrain to enjoy life’s most enriching experiences, wherever they may be. For this reason, they have asked us to create a Rolls-Royce that offers uncompromised luxury wherever they dare to venture. Cullinan is that car. It is Effortless, Everywhere. It is incomparable and dramatically evolves the parameters of super-luxury travel, translating Rolls-Royce’s ethos of ‘Effortlessness’ into physical capability, anywhere in the world. Cullinan will simply take the world in its stride.”
For a quick overview, the Cullinan is the second Rolls-Royce vehicle to ride on an aluminum space frame. This allows it to be stong and nimble simultaneously. It has a 3-box design, with the engine, passenger compartment, and luggage separated to ensure a quiet atmosphere inside. It was tested to destruction around the world, and it has proven itself worthy of any climate or terrain imaginable.
Under the hood is the familiar twin turbo 6.75 liter V12. It offers 563 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque to all wheels. Starting at a suggested retail price of $325,000, it is priced accordingly to the other players in the world of Super SUVs. Thanks to the mostly aluminum design, it only weighs 5,864 lbs. This is much lighter than we would have guessed. It has all the luxuries and ammenities we’ve seen in their other models, and now it has all-terrain DNA added into the mix. We can barely wait to see how it handles the beaches of Florida; so stay with us for all your Cullinan updates!
