The paint has barely dried on its body, yet the Rolls-Royce Cullinan has already received a second facelift. Mind you, as mentioned above, it's nothing more than a mere rendering, and between us, we like the unofficial design more than the real one.
Created by spdesignsest and recently shared online, this hypothetical fresh take on the facelifted Rolls-Royce Cullinan focuses on one aspect: the front bumper. Chances are the pixel manipulator was a fan of the grille, headlamps, new DRLs, and other exterior parts, so he decided to give the luxury SUV a redesigned lower air intake.

You see, the actual Cullinan has the lower part of the bumper split into three areas. It sports a central vent and two side ones. However, the CGI variant makes do without the vertical slats and imagines the model with a continuous low air intake that's only interrupted in the middle by the ADAS sensor. The integrated apron was also reshaped, and it looks cleaner.

Meanwhile, in the real world, Rolls-Royce is preparing to launch the facelifted Cullinan. The model faces more competition now than it did back in 2018 when the original iteration came out, yet most petrolheads can agree that this is one of the most luxurious in its class.

It remains easily identifiable, as the British auto marque has retained most of its design traits. It has new front and rear fascias complete with fresh DRLs, new bumpers, and a backlit grille, which is a premiere for this model. The window trim is dark on the slightly sportier (for a luxury SUV) Black Badge, and the wheels measure 23 inches in diameter.

The same digital dash is visible inside, and Rolls-Royce gave the facelifted Cullinan Black Badge carbon trim that takes a lot of time (for a production vehicle) to manufacture. Speaking of the Black Badge, it still enjoys 592 horsepower (600 ps/441 kW) and 664 pound-foot (900 Nm) of torque from its V12 motor with twin turbocharging, whereas the regular Cullinan comes with 562 hp (570 ps/419 kW).

In typical Rolls-Royce fashion, the automaker hasn't announced the cost of the Cullinan Series II (code for facelift). However, it is estimated to start at almost $400,000, making it one of the most expensive high-riders on sale. Moreover, the car manufacturer states that its average customer age is now just 43, which makes us wonder what we are doing with our lives since we clearly cannot afford an old Rolls-Royce, let alone a new one.

Now, back to the reason behind this story, which is the unofficial second facelift, do you dig the 2025 Rolls-Royce Cullinan more with the CGI-tweaked front fascia or the way the auto brand offers it? Let us know what you think about it below in the comments section.
