With ultra-luxury SUVs becoming increasingly popular, Rolls-Royce decided to produce its first SUV, the Cullinan. It’s named after one of the largest diamonds in the world. They needed to come up with a luxury vehicle that offered useability, performance, and off-road capability with a focus on family and adventures. Afterall, Rolls-Royce was born as an adventure brand making a reputation for themselves as the most reliable brand of that time.
To accommodate the Cullinan’s younger and more daring buyers, they knew it needed to perform excellent off-road, so they designed it with that idea in mind. It features an aluminum body to reduce weight, (although it still weighs just over 6,000 pounds), a specially tuned 6.75 liter twin-turbo V12 that makes a stunning 563 horsepower plus an even more exciting 627 lb-ft of torque at just 1,600 rpm and AWD. This massive, exquisitely smooth powertrain manages to move the Cullinan from 0-60 in around 4.6 seconds.
