Well … the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. A lot to say about this extreme SUV. The first Sport Utility Vehicle of the brand carries its name with pride and dignity. The “Black Badge” name adds some sportiness.
A real petrolhead smiles when hearing the name “Black Badge”. It stands for exclusivity, power and comfort for the lucky few in the world. The Cullinan Black Badge isn’t an exception and pushes 600 hp and 900 Nm torque out of his massive 6.75-liter V12. Yes, that’s an extra of 29 hp and 50 Nm above the normal one. Rolls-Royce does more than only giving them more power. They adjust the steering, sharpen the throttle response and tweaks the ZF 7-speed gearbox so the car can steer like a sports car and cruise like a big heavy Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
Do you know where the name “Black Badge” comes from? Yes, the black badge or in the words of Rolls-Royce: “Spirit of Ecstacy”. The Spirit, window frame and grill are coloured in black chrome. The exterior of the Cullinan gets dominated by black with more black and some dark details.
On the inside, there is more typical Rolls-Royce stuff. Leather, wood and -for the Black Badge- yellow details. All modern assistance aids are present in the car. The starry sky is an option. But would you take it on your Cullinan?
