The pinnacle of luxury SUV motoring, the Cullinan offers an unmatched blend of luxury, craftsmanship, and performance. Two models are available: the regular Cullinan and a more performance-oriented version called the Cullinan Black Badge. Both models feature a 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel-drive. In the case of the Cullinan, the engine produces 563 hp and 627 lb-ft, while the Black Badge improves on these numbers with outputs of 592 hp and 664 lb-ft.
The regular Cullinan ships standard with 22-inch wheels, LED lighting, a glass roof, and coach-style rear doors. An immaculate cabin trimmed in fine leather and wood can seat five or four, with the latter being an option that introduces rear captain’s chairs with massaging. Other amenities include an 18-speaker audio system, four-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats with a memory system, and a rearview camera. A range of exotic options includes the shooting star headliner, a viewing suite (with two electrically deployable seats at the back), and a rear theatre configuration with twin 12-inch screens. Besides a more powerful engine and chassis upgrades, the Black Badge gets gloss black exterior trim to set it apart, along with color brake calipers. This variant also has a bespoke technical carbon interior veneer that is a sportier, more modern take on Rolls-Royce luxury. Much of the regular model’s chrome surfaces are darkened in this application, including the trunk handle and the exhaust pipes.
