Stunning Cullinan Black Badge and Outrageous Range Rover Show the Power of Cool SUVs

Basically, the main draw of (ultra-luxury) high riders for the aftermarket realm is that they present a larger surface to work with - toward outstanding or controversial results, depending on your POV. Oh, by the way, sometimes they can also hit a bit of both.

And there is no need to take our word for granted, as we have a couple of eloquent examples from the premium and ultra-luxury category, all courtesy of the Los Angeles, California-based forged wheel experts over at Forgiato Designs, who certainly know how to stir a pot of outrageousness with just a hint of their aftermarket greatness.

First, let us start with the popular and successful fifth-gen L460 Land Rover Range Rover flagship SUV, which was recently updated for the 2024 model year with – of course – increased prices. Luckily, Land Rover yanked prices for the 2024 Range Rover family just a little bit – from the long-running base of $106,500 to $107,400, while it also upgraded the powertrains for the PHEV and SV models. As such, the clients can now have a Range Rover SV with a standard or long wheelbase for no less than $209 or $234!

That's biting a chew out of the super-SUV establishment, for sure, as the updated SVs also come with a mighty 606-hp V8 under the hood to make sure the Lamborghini Urus knows it has some mighty competition from the traditional SUV field. Alas, this Range Rover probably doesn't care to zip past its rivals in a hurry, as the model customized and personalized by Houston Custom & Collision (autosuitecustoms on social media) is all about slowly passing by and showing all of its novel assets – including the bronze Forgiato monsters (they look like 26s, for sure) that match the rest of the outrageous body accents.

This Range Rover certainly isn't for everyone, but it also looks a bit subtler (despite the gray-bronze-black exterior combination) than the other asset presented by Forgiato – a minty Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge that belongs to the Shane Justin garment brand. It was recently spotted by a regular of custom vehicle photography, and an impromptu (or staged) photo session was only logical. The Cullinan only shows its Black Badge credentials as far as the badges and Spirit of Ecstasy are concerned, as otherwise, just about everything is minty or chromed – including the Forgiato aftermarket wheels (again, we feel these are around 26 inches in size).

So, in the end – which one is your favorite? The Range Rover that now looks like it's ready to enjoy a romantic summer sunset with a special somebody? Or the minty Rolls-Royce Cullinan that flaunts subtle Black Badge credentials and an elegant 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 that is tuned to 591 horsepower? Oh, by the way, if you want a 'subtler' Cullinan, do peek at the white version embedded (third) below and tell us if crimson and white work even better!
