The new Rolls-Royce Cullinan is the second model in the Rolls-Royce range to adopt the new ‘Architecture of Luxury’ after the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Similar to all Rolls-Royces, it is bespoke – offering the possibility of a multitude of exterior colour options, personalised cabin interiors and recreation modules to suit owners’ lifestyles.

In terms of styling, strength and power are immediately apparent from the face of the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Key features such as lights and air intakes are deep set into the bodywork, whilst strong vertical and horizontal lines create a powerful visage, with the prominent brow of a Saxon warrior created by the line that runs across the top of the pantheon grille and ‘eyebrow’-like daytime running lights.

The grille is created from hand-polished stainless steel, and set slightly proud of the surrounding bodywork that pushes it up and forward. The Rolls-Royce badge and Spirit of Ecstasy ride significantly above the line of the wing, giving them a unique vantage point.

The upper fascia is clad in a newly developed contemporary ‘Box Grain’ black leather – a durable and water-resistant boarded leather similar to that used in Italian high-end luggage and handbag designs. Supporting this upper section is a strong band of wood that is moulded in three dimensions to flow out to the centre stack, whilst the entire dashboard is protected by leather pads on top and at the bottom. The top pad is fashioned in a wing-like fashion, imparting muscularity and movement, as well as the functionality of a cockpit.

The final piece of the puzzle in ensuring that the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan is Effortless, Everywhere is a single button. Known within Rolls-Royce as the ‘Everywhere’ button – one single push is all it takes to harness and unleash all of the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan’s off-road capabilities. Once engaged, the driver can finesse the off-road setting to glide over any situation, whether it be rough track, gravel, wet grass, mud, snow or sand.
