Rolls Royce Cullinan Is Calling You!
Rolls Royce Cullinan, the British luxury automaker’s first-ever all-terrain vehicle, has been officially launched in India. The Cullinan is Rolls-Royce’s first attempt at making a 4WD vehicle.
It shares its underpinnings with the Phantom VIII. It is named after the Cullinan diamond, which is the largest gem-quality diamond ever discovered. Priced at Rs 6.95 crore, it justifies its name as a diamond.
The new Rolls Royce Cullinan has gone through some rigorous testing across different terrains and weather conditions. While it’s not meant to be an off-roader, the Cullinan will offer the ultimate multi-terrain performance that you would expect from an SUV in this class and segment.
Design & Features
If the exterior of the Cullinan had Rolls Royce written all over it, things are no different when it comes to the interior. The cockpit of the SUV is luxury personified. A variety of premium materials are used all over. There are wooden inserts for the dashboard, central console and door trims. The dashboard also houses the signature Rolls-Royce watch. For all the classic luxury feel it exudes, the cabin is packed with modern features. In yet another first, this is the first Rolls-Royce to get a digital instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation.
The elegant SUV weighs in at 2,660kg. That mass, however, is masked very well by the Cullinan’s styling and dimensions, which stand at 5341mm x 2164mm x 1835mm (LxWxH). This makes the Cullinan 200mm longer and 166mm wider compared to the Bentley Bentayga. At 3295mm, it also trumps the Bentley’s wheelbase by 303mm.
Coming to the SUV’s powertrain, it’s powered by a 6.75-litre V12 petrol engine that churns out 571PS of power and 850Nm of peak torque. Unlike the rear-wheel driven Rolls-Royces uptill now, the Cullinan uses a new four-wheel-drive system. An electronically adjustable suspension that uses an air compression system further aids the SUV’s off-road prowess.
