The Cullinan Black Badge is defined by its exterior; the Spirit of Ecstasy mascot is presented in high gloss black chrome and, for the first time, this finish extends onto its mounting plate, creating the darkest Black Badge yet. The ‘Double R’ badge on the front, flanks and aft invert to become silver-on-black, while chrome surfaces such as the front grille surround, side frame finishers, boot handle, boot trim, lower air inlet finisher and exhaust pipes are darkened. Cullinan’s imposing proportions and confident stance are dramatised by all-new 22-inch forged alloy wheels, reserved exclusively for Black Badge Cullinan.
The interior borrows a Sir Henry Royce philosophy – "when it does not exist, design it" – with the introduction of a brand new Technical Carbon veneer. This naked-weave carbon-fibre finish has been developed to create highly accurate repeating geometrical shapes that produce a powerful three-dimensional effect. Each leaf of Technical Carbon is finished with six coats of lacquer before being left to cure for 72 hours then hand-polished to Rolls-Royce’s hallmark mirror finish. This process takes 21 days.
