Rolls-Royce, as a brand, is considered the epitome of luxury. This is due to various reasons that we have discussed in our previous articles. One of the standout features Rolls-Royce offers its customers is an extensive list of customizations. While this certainly increases the cost of the vehicle, most people who buy a Rolls-Royce opt for it. One of the videos circulating on the internet features a yellow Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge. This happens to be India’s first Cullinan Black Badge in this shade and it does not belong to the Ambanis. Nita Ambani got her Black Badge last year during the festive season. This particular SUV belongs to a woman entrepreneur, Vratika Gupta, from Mumbai.

The video has been shared by CS12 Vlogs on their YouTube channel. Vratika Gupta is India’s first woman to own a Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge SUV. She is the founder of Maison Sia. She was actually a fashion designer and later turned into an interior decorator. She started her new venture Maison Sia – the ultimate house of luxury.

It is a one of a kind multi-brand home decor store that offers exquisite and limited edition decor items. The brand office is located in Mumbai and the items sold via the showroom are brought from different parts of the world.

Vratika’s car is also different just like her business. The video was recorded when the car was brand new and was spotted on the roads of Mumbai. It is the first and probably the only one Rolls Royce Cullinan in India to get this paint job.

This is the main attraction on this SUV. There are videos of this SUV without registration number. However, in this case we see the registration number clearly.

As mentioned above, this is the Cullinan Black Badge. What this means is that there are chrome elements on the exterior panels. The fron grille, headlamps and other panels which are usually finished in chrome for the regular version and completely blacked out for a butch look. In fact, the black and yellow combination does look good and give this luxury SUV a sporty touch.

Sporty is not the word that one would associate with Rolls Royce. While they are powerful, the main aim of these cars is to provide utmost comfort and excellent ride quality. Cullinan doesn’t dissapoint in that area too. It comes with a long list of customisations and premium features that offer the occupants a royal experience.

The Rolls Royce Cullinan is offered with a variety of customisations. Just like how the Vratika opted for a unique exterior shade, we are assuming, the interior would also get some customisation options. We sadly do not see the interiors of this SUV in the video. The Cullinan Black Badge is powered by the same 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that generates 600 Bhp and 900 Nm of peak torque.

Comparing the power stats to the normal Cullinan, there has been an increase of 29 Bhp and 50 Nm. All four wheels receive power from an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Price for a brand new Rolls Royce Cullinan starts at Rs 6.95 crore, ex-showroom. However, the Black Badge version is more expensive and has a starting price of approximately Rs 10 crore, ex-showroom.
