It was late last year when luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce launched it’s first-ever SUV, the Cullinan, in India with a price tag of Rs 6.95 crore (ex-showroom, pan-India). Now, the carmaker has showcased its uber-luxurious SUV to prospective customers at a private event in Chennai, along with announcing its availability at its authorised dealer/distributer for South India – the Chennai dealership manages deliveries for all of South India.
Sharing its platform with the new Phantom, the Cullinan is unmistakably a Rolls-Royce. There’s the large iconic chrome Rolls-Royce grille upon which sits the “Spirit of Ecstasy” hood ornament. There are rectangular LED headlights, the signature suicide doors, large 22-inch alloy wheels, along with plenty of chrome detailing. At the back, the Cullinan gets a roof-mounted spoiler, vertically stacked LED tail-lights and dual exhaust ports.
The cabin is near identical to the Phantom and comes finished in bespoke leather, wood and metal trims of the highest quality and featuring the trademark analog clock on the dashboard. Buyers can customise the Cullinan to their personal taste by selecting from a comprehensive menu of hides, colours and equipment as optional extras.
Powering the Cullinan is the brand’s 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 developing a substantial 571hp and 850Nm of torque that sends power to all-four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
