The Rolls-Royce of SUV at South OC Cars and Coffee

At this week’s South OC Automobiles and Espresso, I verify the Cullinan. That is the Rolls-Royce of the SUV, and never surprisingly, it’s made by Rolls-Royce!

Unveiled in Could 2018 on the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the Cullinan is the primary SUV to be launched by Rolls-Royce, and can be the model’s first all-wheel drive car. It’s named after the Cullinan Diamond, the most important gem-quality tough diamond ever found.

The Cullinan begins at $330,000 and can prime over $400,000 after add-ons like a rear hatch that converts to a leather-seated sightseeing perch and starry night time headliner. Regardless of the starry night time excessive worth, the Cullinan has turned the fastest-selling mannequin in Rolls historical past, accounting for practically half of all automobiles bought by Rolls-Royce.

The gross sales success of the Cullinan has been so nice that CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos fretted it might threaten the marque’s “promise to our clients to maintain our model uncommon and unique.” I assume that’s a critical difficulty as a result of there was not one, however two Cullinans, on the present.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is powered by a BWM sourced 6.5L twin turbo V12 making 563 hp. It’s going to want each single hp as a result of this behemoth of a SUV weighs simply over three tonnes. As you’d anticipate, gasoline milage is horrible at 12 mpg. Perspective house owners might wish to purchase a spare Tesla or two to stability out their carbon footprint.
