August 12, 2023

Rolls-Royce Cullinan by Fashion

Okay, a Cullinan in the color Lime Green. What’s the catch? Is it a wrap? Or is it an advertising stunt? Well, the buyer of a Rolls-Royce often prefers this brand to other brands as a fashion statement. The car we are driving is therefore a Rolls-Royce Cullinan Inspired by Fashion, specially put together by Rolls-Royce to show what is possible with Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke program. The brand also delivers pink cars if the customer requests it. The customer is king. Any wish is possible, often for a pleasant fee.

The price tag

What this car costs, you may be wondering? On Dutch registration, you have to think of an amount of about 630,000 euros, including all taxes. The starting price of a Rolls-Royce Cullinan in the Netherlands starts at 495,393 euros. So with some options and Bespoke work, such a price can go up significantly. It will make little difference to a Rolls-Royce buyer. Those who can afford a Rolls don’t bother with a ton more.

Four Inspired by Fashion themes

Rolls-Royce has developed a total of four Inspired by Fashion themes. There is a choice of two Re-Belle variants and two Fu-Shion variants. Under the Fu-Shion banner are the Military Green and Tempest Grey themes. Can the car stand out a little more? Then go for and Re-Belle theme. It comes in flavors of Wildberry or – in the case of driven Cullinan – Lime Green.

Attention in abundance

Even on the highway, this Cullinan Inspired by Fahsion in the color Lime Green is an absolute neckbreaker. In the parking lot, this car also produces fun conversations. Thus, those in need of extra social contact are in an excellent position to choose this color. People always want to know about it.

Composition of Rolls-Royce Cullinan Inspired by Fashion

Fortunately, there is also plenty to say about this car. Not just about composition. Of course the exterior is special, but the interior of this SUV is also worthy of note. The design team chose colors such as hmere Grey, Scivaro Grey and Lime Green with a Woven Metal Fascia finish in Silver. Everything is beautifully matched as only Rolls-Royce could. The workmanship is of exceptionally high standard. Lambswool floor mats give an instant feeling of luxury.

Shooting Star Headliner

In the interior, of course, the Shooting Star Headliner also stands out: headliner with small stars. A magisterial facility. Yet this Cullinan also has a first. In fact, this particular one features the new Starlight Tailgate option. This all-new Bespoke option extends the magical heavenly atmosphere beyond the interior of the car. This Bespoke feature – which takes more than 22 hours to manufacture – consists of 192 softly illuminated stars embedded in the perforated leather.

Viewing Suite

The Starlight Tailgate is complemented by the Viewing Suite. These are two sliding chairs with a folding table. The idea is that you can enjoy the enchanting beauty of a starry night anytime, anywhere. Nice huh. By the way, the Viewing Suite alone costs more than 20,000 euros. But the idea is wonderful. Even drinking a cup of coffee becomes an almost magical experience with the Viewing Suite, especially when it is already dark outside. This is a car for bon vivants.

Dimensions Rolls-Royce Cullinan

Small the Cullinan has never been. The SUV menace has a length of 5.34 meters, a width of 2 meters and a height of 1,835 mm. As you would expect from a Rolls-Royce, the wheelbase is also on the generous side: 3,295 mm. What all that must weigh? As much as 2,690 kilograms.

Whisper-quiet V12 engine

Fortunately, under the hood lies a whisper-quiet V12 engine that produces 571 hp (420 kW) and 850 Nm of torque. That’s enough power for a 0-100 time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h. Average CO2 emissions come out to 348 grams per kilometer. Because of those higher emissions, you pay about 116,000 euros in BPM in the Netherlands. It won’t matter much to the Rolls-Royce buyer. Who just wants the best of the best.

Driving a Rolls-Royce Cullinan Inspired by Fashion

Explaining how a Rolls-Royce drives is actually redundant. In terms of comfort and silence, there is no better car in the world. Remarkably, in a car of this size, we also detect some dynamics when you dive into a corner. It is clever how Rolls-Royce manages to mask the higher car weight. Other than that, it’s mostly comfort. Phenomenal comfort. You sit in lovely armchairs and, of course, overlook a legendary hood with toward the horizon the mascot: the Spirit of Ecstacy. That retracts back into the grille after the car is turned off, to prevent theft of the figurine. Also while driving, you can choose to make the figurine disappear.

Every human life is finite, but in a car like the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Inspired by Fashion, you experience an almost divine experience. As if time does not exist for a moment. Maximum enjoyment in a cocoon of luxury without outside stimuli is driving a Rolls-Royce.
