Ominous Rolls-Royce Cullinan Is Darker Than Night Itself

There was a time when Land Rover's Range Rover was considered the epitome of luxury SUVs. However, we now have similar models from Bentley and Rolls-Royce, which offer elevated everything, including never-before-seen price tags that put them in a superior league.

A brand new Rolls-Royce Cullinan will set you back in excess of $330,000, and that's before factoring in the expensive options and the often-greedy dealer markups. But despite costing more than a very nice home in most parts of the Western world, this model is an absolute success for the Goodwood company.

In fact, it's so popular that every major tuner has at least some aftermarket components for it on its shelves. It is Urban Automotive that has outdone itself with this gorgeous project that was shared online by Wheels Boutique recently, which has made it all the way to our hearts.

Call it childish, but there is something about all-black projects that we absolutely love. This Rolls-Royce Cullinan is one of the darkest out there, as there isn't a single shiny thing on it, save for the center caps on the new multi-spoke alloys that have a concave shape and the British automaker's logos.

Besides the murdered out look, this Cullinan has a modified front bumper with a new lower section. It also gets a new chin spoiler, fender and side skirt attachments, a pair of spoilers at the back, and a new diffuser that is certainly on the sporty side. The re-tuned suspension, which is probably adjustable, completes the project and allows it to send luxury superwagon vibes in its lowest setting.

We hope the cabin is just as ominous as the exterior, but there's no way to tell, as no images of it were released online at the time of writing. Thus, there is a chance it has remained stock. Moreover, since there aren't any references to the powertrain, we could be looking at the same output and thrust that each regular Cullinan benefits from when it rolls off the line at the Goodwood factory in the United Kingdom.

The 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 engine produces 562 hp (570 ps/419 kW) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque, sent to the all-wheel drive system through the automatic transmission with eight gears. The stock Rolls-Royce Cullinan has been clocked at just over five seconds from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 kph) and has a maximum speed of 155 mph (250 kph).

At 592 hp (600 ps/441 kW) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm), the Cullinan Black Badge is even punchier, dropping the sprint time by a couple of tenths of a second. And that is highly impressive for a vehicle with a curb weight of 6,069 pounds (2,753 kg). The top speed remains capped at 155 mph.
