Rolls-Royce Cullinan Series II

The new Rolls-Royce Cullinan Series II has been revealed – and it sees the luxury car brand’s ‘most requested model’ being given a massive overhaul.

It’s the most extensive series II update ever applied to a Rolls-Royce car.

And it certainly doesn’t disappoint with the brand declaring it a ‘bold evolution of the world’s pre-eminent super-luxury SUV’.

With the original launched in 2018, the Cullinan built a new legacy for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars – and the Ambani family are just several of its famous fans.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan Series II is considered a mid-life refresh for what Rolls claims is its ‘most requested model’ within the marque’s product portfolio in direct response to changing codes of luxury and client use cases.

The average age of an RR owner has shifted from 56 in 2010 to 43 – and only 10 per cent now use a chauffeur – and if you want to try it out, supercars worth millions of dollars can be rented from your room at this high-end London hotel.

It integrates an advanced digital interface that appears to be analogue, SPIRIT, and private members app, Whispers.

Grey-stained ash wood trim is paired with duality twill seating that’s made from bamboo fibers.

It incorporates 2.2 million stitches and up to 11 miles of thread with a new ‘Placed Perforation’ seat pattern inspired by clouds and up to 107,000 individual perforations.

The biggest changes are on the exterior, enhancing its stance and softening its proportions.

The new daytime running lights make the car seem wider, and new air intakes reduce its previous loftiness.

Lines on the bumper create a ‘V’ emulating the prow of a a superyacht.

Meanwhile, the Pantheon grille is illuminated for the first time.

The Cullinan now boasts 23in part or fully polished alloys, with an innovative seven-spoke design.

Black Badge Cullinan Series II, which will be available at launch, is tailored to those seeking a more visceral interpretation of Rolls-Royce.

While it’s designed to cocoon passengers from the outside world, rear occupants can connect two streaming devices to separate screens, with headphone Bluetooth connectivity.

The bespoke audio system boasts 18 channels and a 1400w amplifier, with cavities in the aluminum spaceframe used as resonance chambers and a natural sub-woofer.

The Cullinan series II has an unchanged mechanical specification: 6.75-litre, 563bhp twin turbo V12, 663lb ft of torque.

We bet this Sikh billionaire, who matches his Rolls-Royces to the colors of his turbans and purchased six new cars in one go, will be the first to get his name on the list.
