The most luxurious SUV in the world is the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
Rolls-Royce Cullinan, the most luxurious SUV in the world, was brought to Moscow.

Cullinan is the world’s largest diamond. He now adorns the crown of the British Empire. The new «Rolls» is named in his honor.
Fables about «ultimate luxury» and other pomp and pathos for the needs of a rich public are no longer news at the presentation of cars of this class. Of course, a pinch of such rantings was present at the debut of RR Cullinan, but something else is interesting.

The British have focused on the true off-road capability of the new SUV. That is, we are literally talking about the fact that the newly crowned king and the most luxurious SUV on the planet is able not only to wet the 22nd diameter slippers in a puddle, but is also able to move off the asphalt and climb quite far.

Let’s see what trump cards he has up his sleeve.
The depth of the ford to be overcome is 540 mm. Of course, not 900, as on the new Land Rover Discovery, and not even 700 mm, as on the devil-knows-what-the-birth of the “Helika” that has just survived, but the indicator is also impressive.

Moreover, for a super-refined and aristocratic machine. By the way, Rolls-Royce claims that its competitors (and the Cullinan has two so far) the ford depth is much less. At the same time, there is no information about the vehicle’s clearance.

But, of course, the Rolls-Royce philosophy implies the priority of driving comfort over «getting through at any cost.» Therefore, in addition to the aluminum space frame, which formed the basis of the car, the engineers equipped the Cullinan with air suspension with increased volume chambers, which are able to neutralize the consequences of falling into the deepest holes.

And another interesting off-road know-how aimed at preventing wheel slip and spin. When driving off-road, electronically controlled shock absorbers use an air compression system to apply pressure to the wheel, which at a certain moment loses traction. Under pressure, the wheel begins to «row» again and maintains constant contact with the surface.

The Cullinan’s next accent is practicality. It’s strange to write this in relation to Rolls-Royce, but what can you do, you cannot argue against facts)

So, the British comrades claim that the Cullinan has a roomy trunk. The statement is at least controversial, since its volume is only 560 liters, and if you remove the luggage rack, then 600. In addition, Cullinan is the first Rolls-Royce to have second-row folding seats (!). But that’s not all: the Cullinan is the first Rolls-Royce to have a tailgate at all, making it the brand’s first five-door model.

However, the main «feature» of the trunk of the model is folding chairs and a table leaving it. According to the automaker’s idea, sitting on them, you can contemplate the natural beauty that you have been able to reach thanks to the off-road potential of the Cullinan.

Well, and, really, throwing away all the pathos, it’s cool to have a mini-picnic, dropping somewhere in a pretty forest glade and sitting on these chairs.

And one more thing: the Cullinan is the first three-box SUV. This happened because it has a glass partition between the trunk and the passenger compartment.

There is a beautiful marketing legend according to which such a decision is a reference to those elegant times when noble ladies and gentlemen were under no circumstances in the same space with their luggage, because the luggage was located on the roof of the car, but everything is more prosaic.

This is a Rolls-Royce, which means it should be as quiet as possible. And the glass partition helps to improve the noise insulation of the cabin.

The Cullinan is built on the same platform as the next generation Phantom. It is based on an aluminum space frame. The SUV also shared the engine with the Phantom: it has the same V12 under the hood with two 6.75-liter turbines (or, as they say in England, six and three quarters) and 571 hp. from. The torque is 850 Nm.

The interior is nothing new, it is made in the same style as the interior of the Phantom. The only innovation is, perhaps, the multimedia touch screen.

Seats for passengers in the second row can be either a classic three-seater sofa or a two-seater configuration with a center console between the seats.

In it, of course, everything is Feng Shui: a refrigerator, a decanter, glasses for whiskey and champagne. The seats in the second row, by the way, are located slightly higher than the first (the so-called amphitheater landing) so that passengers can see what is happening in front.

Russian prices for the Cullinan have not yet been announced, and in Europe the SUV will cost from 266 thousand euros, which is equal to about 20 million rubles. You can safely add five million, and we get the starting Russian price tag.

When it comes to positioning, the Cullinan is the number 2 model in Rolls-Royce’s car lineup, and sits between the Ghost and Phantom sedans.
