Premium British automaker, Rolls Royce, has a rich, illustrious history of making some of the finest luxury coupes and sedans the world has ever seen. The Phantom, the Wraith, the Ghost – these are all Rolls Royce models that have firmly cemented their legacies as true legends of the automotive world.
Rolls Royce is a company that’s know for sticking to its roots and traditions – which is why many eyebrows were raised when RR announced they were going into unchartered territory with their very first SUV, the Cullinan.
However, the apprehensions were short-lived. In its first few months in production, the Cullinan has proved to be just as decadent as any other Rolls Royce that came before it. A true masterpiece of automotive engineering and extravagance, the Cullinan is redefining the term “luxury SUV”.
Here are three interesting facts about the Rolls Royce Cullinan that you should know.
It’s More Powerful than a Ferrari 458
Under the hood of the Rolls Royce Cullinan, you’ll find a monstrous 6.75-liter V12 which produces 563 hp. That is 1 hp more than you get from the V8 of the 202 mph Ferrari 458. Moreover, the Cullinan’s V12 also produces a staggering 627 ft-lbs. of torque – which is a whole 230 ft-lbs. more than the Ferrari.
However, while there’s more than enough grunt for some quick off-the-line numbers, the Cullinan is too sophisticated for than type of tire-shredding hooliganism. Instead, the acceleration comes in an effortlessly elegant burst.
It Shares Its Platform with the Phantom
Under that exquisite exterior shell of the Cullinan, you’ll find the same “Architecture of Luxury” platform that underpins the latest Phantom. This means that while the Cullinan offers a ride that’s just as comfortable as the Phantom, however unlike the Phantom, the Cullinan is a 4WD. Meaning that for the very first time, you have a Rolls Royce that you can go off-roading in.
It Can Detect Nearby Animals
The Cullinan comes equipped with a wide array of technological features, some of which are truly mind-boggling. For instance, it has an infrared night vision system, which allows you to spot nearby animals in the dark, adaptive cruise control, a WiFi hotspot, massaging seats, and whole host of advanced electronic driving aids and safety features.
