The First SUV from Rolls-Royce

By Chris Boyle

The Cullinan in Magma Red

The long wait is over. Never again will you have to leave the comfort and luxury of your Rolls-Royce to go on an adventure. Whether it’s scaling the dunes outside of Dubai, driving up a snowy and city path to a chalet in the Alps, or the facing treacherous path to the soccer field, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan can conquer them all in absolute style. As this is a Rolls-Royce, great attention has been paid to the back seats. Those who will be riding, not driving, will likely select the individual seat package. Here, the seats are separated by a drinks cabinet with whisky glasses and decanter, champagne flutes and a refrigerator. The rear seats are also higher than the front seats, ensuring you’ll have the best view of the house, whether looking forward or up through the panoramic glass roof. Taking inspiration from the glamorous early days of automobiles, when cars were custom-built with separate trunks and luggage racks — who would deign to travel with a suitcase just inches from their head? — it has a glass partition that separates passengers from the trunk, creating a three-box environment. This allows you to open the trunk but keep your cool, literally, without disturbing the interior temperature. In the trunk, hidden in a discreet motorized drawer, is a recreation module, which stores gear for your various activities, from fly fishing to snowboarding, or simply enjoying the view from special seats. The 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 Rolls-Royce engine offers all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, which the company describes as being on a magic carpet ride. Scroll down for a peek at the Cullinan in action.
