Well, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan is here officially! The Rolls-Royce Cullinan price in India is Rs 6.95 crore, ex-showroom, pan-India. Bookings have already started while deliveries will be fulfilled in a few months from now. The Cullinan is Rolls-Royce’s first SUV and is currently the most expensive SUV in India. The Cullinan competition includes the Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga.
Tell me more about the Rolls-Royce Cullinan
The Cullinan is built on a new architecture by Rolls-Royce. It uses an aluminium spaceframe chassis. This is not only shared with the new Phantom but also is lighter than all other Rolls-Royce platforms. The vehicle is also the first 3-box Rolls-Royce. Visually, it looks much like any other Rolls up front. The Spirit of Ecstasy sits atop the bonnet while there are full LED headlights flanking it. The Cullinan measures 5.4m in length and has 22-inch alloy wheels. Rolls-Royce’s trademark suicide doors too are present. There is a rear diffuser, beefy bumper as well as a roof mounted spoiler.
Inside, the Cullinan is swathed with luxury adornments. This Rolls will seat four in the utmost comfort. There are the latest gadgets including touchscreen systems, connectivity as well as navigation on offer. Even the rear seat passengers get their own touchscreen infotainment systems. All four seats are power adjustable and come with massage function as well. There are also cameras fitted on the outside of the car to aid with driving and parking duties. Radar-based traffic alert, active cruise control as well as front and rear collision alert too are present.
What’s under the hood of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan
A 6.75-litre V12 engine that makes 565PS of power and 850Nm of torque propels the Cullinan. The transmission is a 9-speed automatic. It gets to 100kmph within standstill in less than five seconds. The top speed is greater than 250kmph. Rolls-Royce offers an Everywhere mode with the Cullinan. This, when activated through the central console, helps cocoon the occupants from road irregularities. The air suspension is height adjustable and lowers the SUV when the owner unlocks it. Once the engine is fired up, the suspension returns to its normal height.
While Rolls-Royce hasn’t confirmed the number of orders the Cullinan has received, we expect the elite Indians to keep RR boffins happy by quickly lapping up the allocated units.
