The first ever four-wheel drive, Rolls-Royce Super-SUV has been unveiled offering chauffeurs go-anywhere luxury.
Three years in the making, the Sussex luxury car manufacturer Rolls-Royce has finally revealed the Cullinan, which has been tested ‘to destruction’ around the world to ensure it’s up for any challenge thrown at it.
Housing a 563bhp, 6.75 litre twin-turbo V12 engine, the Cullinan aims offer practicality, versatility to customers, whilst using an all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering system allowing clients to easily access remote locations.
The rear passenger compartment offers two configurations – Lounge Seats or Individual Seats. The Lounge Seat configuration is the more functional with space for three passengers in the rear. The rear seats also fold down – a first for Rolls-Royce.
The Individual Seat configuration features two seats separated by a fixed centre console incorporating a drinks cabinet with Rolls-Royce whisky glasses and decanter, champagne flutes and refrigerator. The seats also move in a number of planes to offer ultimate comfort whilst travelling in the rear.
Offering 560 litres of boot space with the seats up, the Cullinan removes the difficulty of passengers entering the high vehicle by lowering 40mm when unlocking the car.
Inspired by the age when one never travelled with one’s luggage, Rolls-Royce has created a glass partition isolating the passenger cabin from the luggage compartment, creating an inner ecosystem for the occupants. In the hottest and coldest of environments, clients can remain in the optimum temperature even when the luggage compartment stands open.
Further equipment includes night vision and vision assist including daytime and night-time wildlife and pedestrian warning. A four camera system with panoramic view, all-round visibility and helicopter view, a massive 7×3 High-Resolution head-up display, WiFi hotspot, and the latest navigation and entertainment systems are all included.
Once engaged, the driver can select the ‘Everywhere’ option, setting the Cullinan to glide over any situation, whether it be rough track, gravel, wet grass, mud, snow or sand delivering all 850Nm of torque to all four wheels. The Cullinan delivers the deepest wading depth of any super-luxury SUV at 540mm thanks to its highest ride height.
