The Rolls-Royce Cullinan Is An Extraordinary, Yet Inevitably Imperfect, Machine

If you have to ask how much the Rolls-Royce Cullinan costs, well, that’ll be $420,000 for the fully loaded version in the U.S., or about $100,000 less for the entry-level model. But if you’re shopping for a Cullinan, the term “entry-level” probably don’t exist in your vocabulary.

Anyhow, in return for that princely sum, clients will be able to park a Rolls-Royce SUV next to their Phantoms, Wraiths and/or other luxury cars found in their garage.

The Cullinan is offered with 4 or 5 seats, has a couple of extra seats that slide out of the boot area, is fitted with buttons that automatically close the doors enveloping users in British luxury, and it’s extremely comfortable. It’s also long and wide and pretty much hovers over the usual road imperfections, telling drivers not to worry about them, yet still has good body control.

Driving the first-ever Rolls SUV is a smooth and calm experience. Even the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 is quiet and, most of the time, you won’t even hear it. Push the throttle down, and you’ll enjoy 563 horsepower (571 PS / 420 kW) and 627 pound-feet (850 Nm) of torque, with the latter kicking in from 1,600 rpm.

As refined as it may be, the Cullinan is not perfect. Cars took one out for a short drive and said that some of the things don’t make users feel special, such as the key fob, which is not the jewel you’d expect in such a car. For the rest of their remarks, we’re going to invite you to check out the review that follows right after the break.

 

  • Six_Tymes

    the key fob…. oh wow. we’re down to complaining about key fobs now. the world will never be the same as it once was.

    • TheAmerican2point0

      I mean, if you’re paying 400k or whatever for a car I think you can pick on that

  • Merc1

    I still can’t believe they made something so ugly. It’s a London cab gone horribly wrong.

    • Belthronding

      You should be right regarding design,to me it does not look very well but also not that much ugly.
      but it still looks unique,does not look like bmw derived at all unlike vw derived bentayga.

      • Merc1

        It’s still ugly. When you have to say it looks unique or have to explain it, there is a problem. Good looking cars require no excuses or explanations.

        M

        • Belthronding

          i was pointing out ‘uniqueness’ concept which may have been in a good way or worse .it was not an excuse or explanation,whatever.

          • Merc1

            Yes you are, that’s exactly what you’re doing. Good looking car cars don’t need anything “pointed out” about them or have to have their “uniqueness” pointed out.

            M

          • Belthronding

            Ok

            B

    • Cobrajet

      The London Cab look, gives it the “British” character.

      • Merc1

        And it’s still ugly as hell. When you have to explain how or why a car looks the way it does, you have a problem and have lost the plot.

        M

        • Cobrajet

          You are the only one here that complains about. Why shouldn’t it look the way it does, it doesn’t look that they could have done much better. It could have been worse if they gave it a conventional wagon shape, the London cab style saved it, IMO.

          • Merc1

            Oh lord man go away and quit trying to put your opinion over on me. It’s ugly as sh TO ME.

    Just look at how beautifully each body panel lines up with the other. Amazing. As for it being ‘imperfect’…. seriously? Man is incapable of perfection.

    • Bash

      Actually you’ve just said it. each body panel fits and lines up so perfectly with the other, and looks amazing, Yet the final shape after you put all those perfect body panels together, is not perfect. lol

      • Craig

        Which can be said of the most incredible looking HUMAN.

        • Bash

          I’m not sure I understand.

          • Craig

            No HUMAN is perfect either. [No matter how well put together]

          • Bash

            Ok, we all comes with flaws and imperfections. but are we comparing cars to humans now in terms of perfections. I lost you man. so I’m gonna up-vote your comment now, and just leave it there.

          • Craig

            Yes. I AM. The point being…. NOTHING is perfect. Humans OR ‘human created things – like automobiles’. That said.. thanks for the up-vote. :o)

  • Jo Bo

    Perfect car for fat people!

  • Ary Wisesa

    I think the Cullinan is just perfect. I wouldn’t mind at all if destiny gives me a chance to own one. LOL…

    • Bash

      omg. I dont like it, but I don’t mind owing one, how convenient. LOL

  • Maximilian Norlande Rabbitt

    If he gets a bill for staining those WHITE seats with the dye from his jeans, he can’t really say he’s not responsible

  • Enter Ranting

    It’s a study in vulgarity. Hopefully, the ridiculous price will mean I won’t have to see it in person. It’s a hideous version of a stupid vehicle trend.

    • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

      Ohhh waaaa waaaa Did Rolls Royce hurt your feewings by making a vehicle not aimed at peasants like you? Awwww What a shame.

      • Enter Ranting

        No, they made a hideous vehicle based on a BMW. But I’m glad that I’ve had such a profound impact on you.

        • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

          Oh The Irony. I’m sure you impact most people in the way that cancer does.

          • Enter Ranting

            Well, here’s hoping your tumor is as malignant as your personality.

          • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

            The only tumor here is you. What a hypocrite you are. Most incels are tho. Sad Cnt.

          • Enter Ranting

            Geez, are you still at it? You’re a real glutton for punishment, in addition to being a tiresome miserable snob. So here’s what I’m gonna do: I’m giving you the last word. I know how much your pitiful ego needs it. And I’m pulling the plug on you. Consider yourself blocked. Pip pip!

          • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

            God what a moron you are.
