The Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV makes its worldwide debut

The much-anticipated SUV from the luxury automaker has been launched globally.

The most anticipated Rolls-Royce of all time has finally gone official. Say hello to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, the newest SUV player in the luxury car market.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV was unveiled on a global stage on May 10 (7pm SGT) from the UK. This car, though exudes the same design philosophy expected of Rollers, is the brand’s most rugged car in its portfolio.

The Cullinan is designed to be an all-terrain luxury off-roader. An all-new all-wheel drive and all-wheel steer system makes it ready to take on the challenges of bumpy roads. Not to mention the all-aluminium structure delivers extraordinary car body stiffness for exceptional performance. Fitted with a powerful 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 engine, the SUV has up to 563bhp of power and 850Nm of torque under the hood.

The car delivers the brand’s usual Magic Carpet Ride even while off-road. And it promises to be the most versatile, fun and family-oriented ride. Luggage capacity is at 1,930 litres, which means lots of space for family road trips or fishing adventures with the boys.

And just like all Rollers, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan come with grand coach doors. Interiors is the usual array of the very best woods, leathers and metals that spells opulence, elegance and comfort.

“Cullinan is incomparable and redefines the parameters of super-luxury travel, translating Rolls-Royce’s ethos of ‘Effortlessness’ into physical capability anywhere in the world,” says Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Peter Schewarzenbauer, chairman of Rolls-Royce, agrees: “We are setting a new standard by creating a new class of motoring and motor cars for customers who are well-connected, highly mobile and have a global perspective.”
