Rolls-Royce Cullinan Built For Poor Kid Turned Millionaire

Luxury / 7 Comments

It's one-of-a-kind, inside and out.

Car collector Micheal Fux's story is the embodiment of the quintessential American dream. He immigrated to the United States with his family from Cuba in 1958 and took jobs as they came. He sold car parts at Sears before becoming a sales manager for a linen company and learned from that before going on to make his fortune in bedding. Fux has owned several businesses and started the most successful one with just $3,000, then sold it when it had reached close to $300 million in sales. The wealth he's generated through his businesses has fueled his love and collection of cars and, in particular, colorful cars that he uses at fundraisers to help sick children. What you see here is his latest.

Fux is a regular customer of the Rolls-Royce Bespoke program that develops one-of-a-kind Bespoke commissions for wealthy customers. 'Cullinan in Fux Orange' is Fux's 10th colorful and bespoke Rolls -Royce, and it was unveiled at the "The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering" in Monterey.

The bright-orange Cullinan is as much of a head-turner as his other brightly colored Rolls-Royce models. According to the automaker, Fux "challenged the designers to match the exterior color to a vibrant orange ladies wrap that caught his eye in South Florida." The paint consists of seven layers of finish and then polished by hand for multiple hours in Rolls-Royce's Surface Finish Center.

The orange theme runs all the way through the Cullinan, right down to the wheel hubs And the interior had just as much attention paid to it. The handcrafted Arctic White leather is finished with orange stitching as well as the Rolls-Royce initials on the headrests. The color contrast is also used in the finished fascia veneer, steering wheel, rear-view mirror, and lambswool floor mats.

Rolls-Royce currently has dozens of colors reserved for numerous clients around the globe, all of which can only be used again with the permission of the owners. Fux is currently the brand's best Bespoke customer with the most colors to his name.
