The latest Cullinan Series II just made its first public appearance.

Rolls-Royce’s most requested model recently received a mid-cycle refresh.

The super luxury SUV now has a more chiseled appearance outside and a digital interface inside.

It’s a pretty significant overhaul and turned out to be even more impressive up close.

The Cullinan was only launched in 2018 but it’s already time for a model refresh.

It’s a popular model and one of the only cars millionaire investor Grant Cardone would recommend buying over leasing.

Any celebrity car collector who knows what they’re doing has one in their fleet, from streamer Adin Ross to Nicki Minaj.

But even a classic needs an update now and then.

The Cullinan’s facelift was announced recently, but no one had seen it up close until now.

The Series II made its debut at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy, one of the most prestigious classic car events in the world.

Visitors were able to see the Cullinan Series II parked on a plinth surrounded by Italian greenery.

The illuminated grille was the most eye-catching update, mirroring the second generation of the Ghost.

Its headlights have also been redesigned, with the extended daytime running lights giving the car a wider look.

A more subtle update is the brushed stainless-steel plate between the exhausts, which extends to protect the underbody of the vehicle.

This marks the first time we’ve seen 23-inch wheels on the Cullinan, set off by a seven-spoke design.

Beyond the visual changes, the Cullinan remains largely the same under the hood.

It is still powered by a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 engine, delivering 563 bhp and 663 lb-ft of torque.

The Black Badge variant of the Cullinan Series II is Stormtrooper-like, with a monochromatic palette and a more aggressive aesthetic.

On display in Italy, however, was the Series II in a regal brown marble finish called ‘Emperador Truffle’.

Of course, a Rolls-Royce customer can choose whatever color they desire though.

We want to know how many colors the Sikh who matches his Rolls-Royces to his turbans is going to buy.
