Re­flect­ing the brand’s pur­suit of per­fec­tion, the ve­hi­cle is named af­ter the largest di­a­mond ever found. Rolls Royce doesn’t de­fine the car ex­actly as an SUV, rather it is a High Sided Ve­hi­cle. This isn’t just be­cause of the di­men­sions- 5.3 me­ters long, 1.83 me­ters high - Rolls Royce be­lieves the Cul­li­nan hasn’t been cre­ated to win any­thing as it only has to rely on its own per­for­mance to be the king.

Fea­tur­ing the dis­tinc­tive Rolls Royce body curve, large chrome plated grill, coach doors and the iconic Spirit of Ec­stasy, there is no mis­tak­ing the maker of this beau­ti­ful ve­hi­cle. Be­ing such a large ve­hi­cle, the ques­tion arises - how do you el­e­gantly en­ter it? The an­swer is that when you pull the door han­dle or when the car is un­locked, the body will au­to­mat­i­cally lower it­self. Once all the doors are closed and the en­gine started, the Cul­li­nan will re­turn to its stan­dard ground clear­ance.

This beau­ti­ful ve­hi­cle also fea­tures an ex­clu­sive View­ing Suite to add that ex­tra touch of lux­ury when en­joy­ing the stun­ning scenery on those spe­cial trips. A sin­gle press of a but­ton in­tro­duces two leather seats and a cock­tail ta­ble. The View­ing Suite’s be­spoke con­fig­u­ra­tion pro­vides the most com­fort­able seats in the house for the finest views in the world.

The Cul­li­nan’s in­te­rior con­tin­ues the level of lux­ury one would ex­pect, with a full use of pre­mium wood and leather. The cen­tre con­sole fea­tures a liq­uid crystal dis­play with a 10.2inch dis­play, while the large sized, three spoke steer­ing wheel is mul­ti­func­tional.

The Cul­li­nan fea­tures a num­ber of cut­ting-edge smart tech­nol­ogy sys­tems, in­clud­ing night vi­sion which can ac­cu­rately iden­tify ob­sta­cles in low light road con­di­tions. Linked with func­tions such as panoramic mon­i­tor­ing, over­head view­ing sys­tems, col­li­sion and lane de­par­ture warn­ings, the Cul­li­nan not only en­ables the driver to bet­ter ob­serve the sur­round­ing road con­di­tions, but also al­lows the ve­hi­cle to pro­tect it­self in a num­ber of dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tions.

In terms of power, the Cul­li­nan car­ries a 6.75 litre twin-turbo V12, the same en­gine as the Phan­tom. The gear box is a ZF 8AT with full-time four-wheel drive. Dif­fer­ent from the tra­di­tional SUV, the Cul­li­nan does not have a va­ri­ety of driv­ing modes. There is only one off-road but­ton on the cen­tre con­sole. Once en­gaged, the off-road set­ting can be fi­nessed for op­ti­mum per­for­mance on any ter­rain, gra­di­ent or sur­face qual­ity.
