In the last years we have noted the boom that the utility sports trucks (SUV) have, which are in part to help the large automotive companies to generate good profits, in Europe they realized this and began to create their own 4×4 versions giving the luxury and eccentricity that each one characterizes them. Cases like the Bentley with his truck called “Bentayga”, Alfa Romeo the “Stelvio”, Lamborghini the “Urus”, etc. therefore, Rolls Royce does not stay back and it premieres its own all terrain: the Cullinan.
Debuting in 2018, the Cullinan is the first all round of Rolls Royce, using the Phantom aluminum chassis (launched the same year), it measures 5.341MM length, 2.160MM width and 1.840MM high. It’s the largest SUV in its category.
The heart of the cullinan is driven by a v12 engine of 6.75 liters double turbo booting an amazing 563 hp @ 5,000 rpm. Achieving an impressive 627 lb-ft. of torque at just 1,600 rpm. the transmission is automatic of 8 speeds with torque converter. Its maximum speed is 155 mph (250 KM / H) limited. If you thought that the Rolls Royce Cullinan is a truck only for asphalt, let me tell you that you are wrong, this all terrain comes with double traction permanent and includes a sophisticated system called “everywhere” which is programmed with 12 configurations that work in engine, transmission and suspension. additionally the everywhere mode comes with 3 off road modalities: snow, sand and rocks.
Outside, the front part of the Cullinan is similar to the whole family of west sussex, the luggage gate opens in 2 divisions called “the clasp” which is primacy for a rolls royce vehicle, can be opened and close with electric drive, its beautiful 22 inch wheels and the famous suicide rear doors give you a unique style. In the inner part we enjoy with his finishing level and luxury like Rolls Royce has used to accommodate his automobiles and the Cullinan is not the exception. The customer can choose in your personalization 2 types of seats for passengers back, the first call “lounge seats” intended for more family use as it has the traditional 3 position seat. the second are the individual seats type aircraft, in the middle a central console can be incorporated to place the drinks, glasses, decanter, champagne or a fridge at the taste of the customer’s personalization. In both versions the support of the rear seats is also folded.
The Rolls Royce engineers have worked a lot in the engine, the transmission and above all in the suspension of the Cullinan. The shock absorbers are monitored through a computer that makes thousands of calculations per second to maintain the truck the best balanced possible until on the worst roads, without affecting the comfort, it also works continuously with the acceleration and braking, the steering movements and the information provided by the front camera.
Said all this, Rolls Royce has insured a successful place in the world of utility sports trucks, it is fast, comfortable, luxurious and with much technology, a spaceship that can take you all sides with class.See more from our Supercar Blog
