Segment: Premium SUV

We’re pretty sure that most of us didn’t really think about utility or versatility when bringing Rolls Royce up.

Or at least that was before the Cullinan, Roll’s first real hatchback.

How about a Rolls that was good for going shopping, towing boats and even going for some off-road? The Cullinan was the most luxurious, the most refined and the most expensive SUV on the market.

Compared to the Phantom, the Cullinan had a shorter and higher body.

Based on Rolls Royce’s ‘Architecture of Luxury’ already featured with the Phantom, the Cullinan had a frame made from aluminum castings, allowing more variability.

While the Cullinan shared the same 6.75 V12 twin-turbo engine, the unit was reworked to offer more low-end torque. The power was sent to all 4 wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission.

As expected, the cabin quality was impressive with leather and wood accents, as well as real metal vent controls.

For the first time, Rolls offered an optional folding bench seat to replace the fixed rear chairs. Besides that, customers could also get a fixed glass partition between the backseats and the trunk, to lower the noise levels.

It was impressive how the Culinan managed to handle forest tracks and rocky paths, offering great comfort and refinement.
