Rolls-Royce Cullinan revealed

Rolls-Royce has revealed its all-new Cullinan with intentions of overtaking the Range Rover and Bentley Bentayga.


Named after a 3,106-carat jewel extracted from a South African mine in 1905, the Cullinan represents the first time Rolls-Royce has tried its hand at building an SUV, or as the company likes to put it, the first time it has built an "all-terrain, high-bodied car" that makes luxury travel "effortless, everywhere."


Rather than being a mere high-bodied luxury car, Cullinan is a full-capability off-roader “able to do whatever a Range Rover can do”, while retaining the refinement and luxury of a limo.


The interior resembles the Phantom to a large extent and gets touchscreens both at the front and back. Some of the features on offer are powered seats with massage function, head-up display, Night Vision, active cruise control and 4 cameras with panoramic view.


While the Cullinan is a practical five-seater as such, one can also opt for the 'Individual Seat' configuration, which replaces the rear bench with two individual thrones, separated by a drinks cabinet that accommodates champagne flutes and a refrigerator.

Also on the centre console is the 'Off Road' button, pressing which will let owners drive the Cullinan through pretty much everything – rough track, gravel, wet grass, mud, snow or sand. lls-Royce’s Architecture of Luxury platform and comes powered by a massive 6.75-litre V12 twin-turbocharged petrol motor that produces 563 HP of power and 850 Nm of torque, slightly lesser than its rival, the Bentley Bentayga.
