New ‘effortless, everywhere’ SUV named after flawless diamond.

You could see the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan as a departure from tradition, or a return to it. The vehicle that Rolls-Royce refers to as a ‘high-sided vehicle’ (but will inevitably be called a luxury SUV) is the first all-wheel drive, five-door Rolls-Royce ever and the first of the modern era to offer off-road capability. However, if you know your Rolls-Royce history, you’ll know that there is precedent: the Silver Ghost was a highly sporting vehicle (winning Gold at the fearsome Alpine Trials) of rugged and enduring qualities, and Lawrence of Arabia described his Rolls-Royce as ‘more valuable than rubies’ in the desert war.

Today the Cullinan, named after the largest flawless diamond ever found, is the newest contender in the ultra-luxury SUV market and sets a new and confident course for Goodwood in the years to come.


Rolls-Royce Cullinan

 Rolls-Royce has only released details of the name and some images of the Cullinan in pre-production testing camouflage. From that it’s clear to see that it’s a handsome, imposing SUV with a pronounced shoulder line leading from front to rear that removes any impression of slab-sidedness.   The traditional Rolls-Royce ‘Greek temple’ Palladian grille suits the proportions of the Cullinan and gives it great presence. The V-shaped bonnet sits proud of the wings and the rear passenger doors are the traditional Rolls-Royce forward opening design. The tailgate has a slight slope, not exactly coupé-like but enough to give the cabin profile a pleasing sweep without affecting headroom in the rear.


Rolls-Royce Cullinan

Rolls-Royce have yet to release any technical specifications but according to some sources the all-wheel drive Cullinan will share the twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V12 engine recently unveiled in the Phantom VIII. It will also use a version of the modular 'Architecture of Luxury' aluminium spaceframe chassis that made its debut in the Phantom. The ‘high-sided all-terrain vehicle’ will have excellent off-road capabilities, as some of the latest Rolls-Royce press photographs show. While few owners will put its mud-plugging capabilities to the test, it’s expected to embody the Rolls-Royce promise of a vehicle that is truly ‘Effortless, Everywhere’.
