The British manufacturer has released a photo gallery of its first SUV model in history.
Rolls-Royce Cullinan, who made the world premiere on Thursday at noon, was named after the largest ever found crude diamond with a jewelry quality.
As with any other model of this manufacturer, luxury is at the forefront, so Cullinan is designed to meet the tastes and demands of customers with the deepest pocket and sense of tradition.
Have not missed neither typical products such as champagne fridge and glasses hidden in the center console of cabin, leather tops, decorative details of the expensive wood, and the inevitable analog clock on the dashboard.
Tradition is a trademark of all Rolls-Royce models and what, in addition to luxury and exclusivity, attracts a specific type of customer.
That’s why the interior is designed rather conservatively, without much experimentation and modernization with modern trends – the instrument panel is classical, analogous, and the only major concession is a multimedia system with a digital display, which is discreetly and carefully incorporated into the cockpit.
The passenger compartment is available in two configurations – standard, with a rear bench on which can seat 3 people, and a super-luxury, with two comfort seats, with a central console that separates passengers.
The rear door opens in the opposite direction from the front, in order to facilitate access to the passenger cabin.
The luggage compartment has a basic volume of 560 liters, and with the folding seats, the useful space can be increased to a maximum of 1,930 liters.
Otherwise, Cullinan is positioned on the same aluminum mechanical platform that is used by the new Rolls-Royce Phantom, which the engineers of this company constructed “from scratch”.
Rolls-Royce Cullinan is equipped with 22 inch alloy wheels, and a special suspension system with air suspension ensures superb drive on all surfaces, according to a British manufacturer.
The computer performs a million calculations in each second to exaggerate the bodywork and adjust the suspension to the road conditions.
Under the hood is a 6.75 liter bi-turbo V12 that produces 571 hp (420 kW) and delivers a maximum torque of 850 Nm at only 1,600 rpm.
The power is transferred to all wheels, and Cullinan is equipped with a control system on all 4 wheels.
The maximum speed of 2,660 kg heavy SUV is electronically limited to 250 km/h, and Rolls-Royce has not yet released an acceleration data of 0-100 km/h.
Probably the most indispensable information when it comes to one such car is the one about average fuel consumption. However, to state that the manufacturer claims that Cullinan consumes 15 l / 100 km.
In the end, the starting price of the car is $325,000.
