The Black Cuillin Is A 1930's Inspired Purple Hot Rod With V12 Power


Modern tech underpins vintage styling in this Geneva showstopper.

There’s always one. A car that arrives at the Geneva Motor Show, completely unexpected that ends up being one of the star attractions. This year, that award goes to the Eadon Green Black Cuillin. A vintage design inspired by the elegant Grand Tourers of the 1930s, the Black Cuillin – named after a mountain range off the Scottish coast – is the brainchild of Felix Eaton. The Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 convertible, an achingly gorgeous drop top worth tens of millions of dollars, was the inspiration for the project. Felix couldn’t afford to buy one, so he decided to build his own.

“My main passion has always been the Coupe, so a Coupe body was decided upon." And the Black Cuillin wears it with style. Coach built from aluminum, under the hood will be a V12 engine from a high-end carmaker. Discussions are underway with a couple of suppliers, but we were assured that it will be a 6.5-liter V12 with a 7,000 rpm redline and the ability to hit a top speed of almost 170 mph. The interior has yet to be completed, but will come sporting a wide center console, a ton of leather and Alcantara, and be trimmed in wood with a bespoke Garrick England timepiece. Apart from being a massive purple hot rod with looks to die for, there’s not much more we know about the Black Cuillin.
