This is freedom absolute. The first all-terrain SUV from Rolls-Royce makes luxury off-road travel a reality for the first time. Pinnacle luxury is now effortless, everywhere.
Rolls-Royce Classic Sports Car
Rolls-Royce puts an emphasis on luxury over sportiness. But what if the company saw the success of vehicles combining performance and opulence in the late 70s and 80s like the R107 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class or Jaguar XJ-S and decided that it needed to compete?
Such a vehicle could have looked something like this. With a design that resembles a late-production Jaguar E-Type but with an emphasis on an angular body rather than the classic Jag’s curves, the long-hood-short-deck layout just isn’t a natural fit for this era of Rolls. Maybe the company made the right decision not trying to enter this segment back then.
Cullinan is an all-terrain, all-season SUV. Drivers journey in confidence, knowing that Cullinan’s limitless performance capability underpins every excursion. Within Cullinan’s generous cabin, passengers are safe, secure, and supremely comfortable.
Engines, Ride, and Handling
Its twin-turbo 6.7-liter V-12 provides 563 effortless horsepower and runs as whisper-quiet as you would expect, lest it disturb the VIPs in its cabin. Rolls-Royce estimates a zero-to-60-mph time of just 4.8 seconds—impressive for a large SUV that weighs as much as the Cullinan does. An electrified powertrain is rumored to join the lineup later, but for now Rolls-Royce’s V-12 engine is the sole offering. All-wheel drive is standard, although we suspect buyers will never venture off the tarmac. The Cullinan rides on an air suspension that adjusts its height automatically using a road-scanning camera; ride comfort is beyond the standards of regular luxury vehicles, and it wafts down the road transmitting nothing unpleasant to the interior.
Bruce Wayne always rides in style, so why shouldn’t Batman? This new take on the Batmobile retains elements from the 1989 movie and 90s animated series, while featuring a skinny take on Rolls-Royce’s grille. There’s even a crystal Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. Just because the Dark Knight is spending an evening fighting crime, doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be comfortable. Look closely for the tip of the jet engine peeking out the back, it would only make sense for this ride to use one of Rolls’ turbines for power, too.
