All New Rolls-Royce Cullinan - Interior and Exterior - Review -JBCMotive

This is the all-new Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The eagerly anticipated SUV marks a number of firsts for the luxury British brand; not only is it its first SUV, it’s the first Rolls-Royce with a tailgate and the first model that the company is happy to say is family orientated – at least in some versions. JBCMotive was privileged to have a video of the SUV after its launch in Qatar. I was utterly dazed while the brand manager Tarek Moataz talk me through the car's personality. Whatever configuration you choose, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan claims to set new standards at the top of the burgeoning luxury SUV market. It's a proper go-anywhere 4x4, too, but with the mantra that it has to be ‘effortless, everywhere’ – it is a Rolls-Royce after all. When you see the Cullinan in the metal, it appears surprisingly shapely and larger than you’d expect – at 5,341mm it’s only 2mm longer than a Ghost, although it’s 216mm wider at 2164mm. It also sits 80mm lower than a Range Rover long wheelbase. That striking bodywork is the result of five years of design work and the instruction to “go big” according to design boss Giles Taylor. “We didn’t want to be shy, we wanted a functional aesthetic look with no apology,” “Yes, they are strong lines, but we wanted to magnify the sense of ultimate presence and capability.” The grille appears bigger than ever, sitting further forward than on Phantom, while the front lights are inset slightly with what Taylor describes as “tough brows”. The rear lights are inset, too, but without a chrome surround so they appear totally integrated with the bodywork. The three-box shape with its two-stage tailgate and collection of horizontal and vertical lines is a development of one that, at one stage in the design process, was actually a booted SUV. The now shrunken bustle at the back still hints at a separate luggage compartment and that is partitioned off by a glass panel in some models. “This is the supremely capable bodyguard to the Phantom, but it will never overshadow Phantom,” Taylor said. But it shares much with Rolls-Royce’s flagship, including its 6.75-litre twin turbo V12 engine and all-aluminium chassis that’s referred to as the Architect of Luxury. The V12 has been specially tuned to deliver 850Nm of torque from 1,600rpm, while peak power is rated at 563bhp. Rolls-Royce doesn’t quote a 0-60mph time, but the top speed is 155mph. To ensure the Cullinan has appropriate road manners, there’s four-wheel steering as well as the four-wheel drive. Not many Cullinan buyers will be too worried about the 18.8mpg average or CO2 emissions of 341g/km, but we’re told that the Architecture of Luxury platform has been built with electrification in mind and that it will underpin every one of Rolls-Royce’s future models. That chassis features a double-wishbone front axle and five-link rear axle with air suspension that gets larger air struts than on Phantom with more air volume to provide Rolls-Royce’s magic carpet ride over the very worst terrain. Of course, the car will also drop down 40mm for what Taylor told us provides “easy access for all.” This art should have been used to ferry Meghan Merkel at the Royal wedding 2018 where Prince Harry looked dashing. Engaging the Everywhere button between the front seats will change the car’s settings ready for what is claimed to be the most serene ride over the most challenging surfaces anywhere in the world.

2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom Luxury Saloon Car Interior and Exterior Overview

The ride offered by the new 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom feels like you’re being whisked about in a sedan chair carried by beauty queens stepping on marshmallows while wearing extra-large and comfy bunny slippers. No, that’s too harsh, too Kia K900. The Phantom ride is more like angels who are graciously but softly flapping their wings after constructing a road made entirely of goose-down sleeping bags, hovering over it on their gossamer wings, suspending your Phantom by silken threads pulled directly from the boxer shorts of Liberace. It’s hard to describe. I struggled for words as I drove my Phantom there in the desert east of Palm Springs, a town that knows a good Roller when it sees one and where Liberace certainly would have felt at home. Or the Sultan of Brunei, or Dom DeLuise or whomever this magnificent craft was made for. Even Rolls-Royce struggles to describe its own magnificence. “The icon for icons,” it humbly suggests. “Engineering and technology perform in harmonious collaboration … delivering a magnificently graceful drive … The loudest sound is your heartbeat …” The silence -- oh yes, I had almost forgotten about the silence. Engineers put forth “incalculable effort” (that’s “incalculable” in SAE, metric, imperial and Whitworth-socket measure) to make this Phantom the quietest ride in all of the Commonwealth, most of the former colonies, and in the once freistadt of Bavaria where the company's owners live. There are 130 kilograms – 287 pounds! – of sound-deadening material throughout, six millimeters (0.24 inches) of 2-layer glazing on the glass, and “silent-seal” tires with sound-swallowing foam liners, all working to make the new Phantom 10 percent quieter than the last one, which was already about as quiet as Charles Rolls’ tomb. The all-new, all-aluminum space frame helps, too. The Phantom is the first to get this new cage but it is scalable so that it can be used to "cosset" every future Rolls-Royce, including the next Ghost, Wraith, Dawn and the Cullinan SUV. It makes the whole rig 30-percent stiffer than the previous Phantom. The engine, which is either “completely new” or “updated,” depending on what you’re reading, is a 6.75-liter twin-turbo direct-injected V12 making 563 hp at 5000 rpm and 664 lb-ft of torque starting at 1700 revs. It is mated to a ZF eight-speed transmission that uses both a camera and GPS to know what the road ahead is going to do and, if it’s going up, uses that data to downshift. Oh man. During a recent BMW press-a-palooza at The Thermal Club where there was everything short of an original BMW-powered Helios motorcycle on hand, I somehow talked my way into taking a Phantom out “for a short drive.” I got a half hour, shared with another writer dude and the generous Rolls representative. That was where I felt that self-levelling, air suspension making its “millions of calculations every second.” It’s the first thing that overwhelms you when you get behind the wheel of this 5,644-pound silent aluminum safe house. Then comes the power from the big V12 – it’s profoundly tractable, like a steam locomotive only far more refined. Rolls lists 0-60 at 5.1 seconds and top speed at 155 mph -- well beyond the speed you’ll need to chase down and flatten trespassers on your estate. Then I swapped seats and got in the back, where someone of the stature of a Vince McMahon or a Meat Loaf, or some dude who owns his own country and ain’t exactly feeling magnanimous with the people’s tax dollars, would sit. There were buttons everywhere: one to close the privacy shades, one to open them, one to raise the footrest, one to lower it, one to fold down the picnic tray, another to fold out the TV screen. There was a “Starlight Headliner.” There were armrests “inspired by a J-Class yacht.” There was supposed to be a secret storage nook for whiskey glasses somewhere, but I couldn’t find it in the 15 minutes or so I was back there. Regardless, as Baloo the Bear would have said had he been there, “This is living.” But there are drawbacks. They’re only making 1000 of them a year and this one stickered for $643,000 as-tested. Is it worth it? Hell yes it’s worth it. Get your priorities straight, man. It’s true, if you look around on the Rolls-Royce website, you can find “Pre-Owned” Rollers starting in the low-$200,000 range. But what kind of aristocat are you, anyway? Pony up the cash for the real deal.

2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan SUV - FULL REVIEW!!

Cullinan at a glance The most anticipated car of 2018 and, quite possibly, the most anticipated Rolls-Royce of all time. Named after the largest diamond ever discovered which now resides in the British Crown Jewels. An all-terrain high-bodied car that makes the idea of authentic, luxury off-road travel a reality for the first time. Luxury travel is now Effortless, Everywhere. Contemporary and functional design ensures Cullinan gains iconic status in the face of increasingly bland SUV designs. The first “three-box” car in the SUV-sector. Cullinan’s rear partition wall creates a distinct environment for passengers, separated from the luggage compartment. The most practical of Rolls-Royces. Cullinan is the most versatile, family oriented, fun-to-drive super-luxury SUV available today. The second new Rolls-Royce to sit on the all-new aluminium ‘Architecture of Luxury’, Cullinan is the most technologically advanced, and only purpose-built, luxury SUV in the world. Tested to destruction all over the planet, Cullinan is an incredibly capable off-roader that sees the development of the ‘Magic Carpet Ride’ for off-road enjoyment, without sacrificing any Rolls-Royce on-road behaviour. Cullinan offers a suite of Bespoke features developed specifically for the many various lifestyles of its owners including the Viewing Suite and the Recreation Module. The 6.75 litre twin-turbo V12 Rolls-Royce engine delivers 563bhp/420kW and 850Nm/627lb ft of torque to the all-new all-wheel drive, all-wheel steer system needed to overcome any challenge. A century-long pedigree of adventurous quests and campaigns successfully carried out across all terrains thanks to the luxury offered by a stout vehicle that was swift, stealthy and dependable. “A Rolls in the desert is above rubies” – T.E. Lawrence. What is Cullinan? The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is Rolls-Royce as it’s never seen before. When Sir Henry Royce said, “Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it”, he could have had Cullinan in mind. “We knew we had to offer our clients what they couldn’t find in the SUV market,” continues Müller-Ötvös. “They do not accept limitations or compromises in their lives. They are the new pioneers, and for them it’s about their sense of adventure and daring in how they live their experiences. This approach to life demands a motor car that can go-anywhere in ultimate luxury and style – Rolls-Royce style. Hence Cullinan.” It was clear that these new, younger and more adventurous customers wanted a Rolls-Royce that would take them completely off the beaten track and reward them with life’s most enriching experiences. What they didn’t want was a vehicle as ubiquitous as an SUV with compromises such as increased cabin noise due to the “two-box” formula; shared platforms that affect performance and comfort; the choice of being good either on-road or off-road; or a lower, more featureless SUV that blends in and becomes just another car. “Cullinan is luxury in its purest form blended with perfect practicality and off-road capability,” comments Müller-Ötvös. “Effortless, Everywhere is not just the promise behind Cullinan. It’s the fact.” Making luxury Effortless, Everywhere engendered an evolution in Rolls-Royce’s approach to creating an authentic Rolls-Royce SUV. The most obvious sign of this was the radical rear of Cullinan. For the first time a Rolls-Royce has an opening tailgate, called ‘The Clasp’. In a nod to the era when luggage was mounted on the exterior of the motor-car, so the occupants did not travel with their belongings, the rear profile of Cullinan is a two-part, ‘D-Back’ format, with the bustle denoting the place of the luggage. ‘The Clasp’ opens and closes in its two sections automatically at the touch of the key fob button. The rear passenger compartment of Cullinan has been designed to offer the best seat in the house for the owner’s particular needs. Two rear configurations are offered – Lounge Seats or Individual Seats. The Lounge Seat configuration is the more functional of the two options. With space for three passengers in the rear, it will likely be more attractive to families. The rear seats also fold down – a first for Rolls-Royce. The seats fold electronically in a number of configurations by pressing the appropriate button in the boot or rear door pocket. One press sees each backrest effortlessly fold down, whist at the same time moving the headrests upwards to avoid making an imprint on the seat cushion. Both seat backs can be folded completely, creating a flat load area or in a 2/3 and 1/3 split, increasing practicality even further.

New 2018 Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV revealed.
Family focused Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV to cost in the region of £230,000, as Rolls-Royce seeks to top the luxury SUV market
This is the all-new Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The eagerly anticipated SUV marks a number of firsts for the luxury British brand; not only is it its first SUV, it’s the first Rolls-Royce with a tailgate and the first model that the company is happy to say is family orientated – at least in some versions.

Whatever configuration you choose, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan claims to set new standards at the top of the burgeoning luxury SUV market. It's a proper go-anywhere 4x4, too, but with the mantra that it has to be ‘effortless, everywhere’ – it is a Rolls-Royce after all.
