Rolls Royce Cullinan is one of the most expensive SUVs that you can currently buy in the world. The luxury manufacturer also launched a Black Bade edition of the SUV, which is a more expensive and performance-oriented version of the Cullinan. Here is a video of the Black Badge version of the Cullinan uploaded on YouTube by Mo Vlogs.
The Cullinan Black Badge is the most expensive 4×4 in the world. It is basically a Cullinan with a host of upgrades. In the video, the first thing that we notice is the matte grey colour scheme which looks like a wrap. All the elements that usually are finished in chrome are now blacked-out. The front grille is finished in chrome with a piano-black surround. Even the Spirit of Ecstasy has been given a gloss black chrome finish. The Rolls Royce badging, air dams, window belts and exhausts are blacked-out.
You can fully customize the SUV as per your choice. Just like the owner of the Black Badge Cullinan has done in the video. He has opted for Pumpkin Yellow upholstery and carbon fibre for the centre console. It also gets Rolls Royce’s Starlight headliner, which mimics the look of the starry sky at night. At the rear, there are two captain seats with a centre console that houses two refrigerators and a custom Rolls Royce flask and glasses for your drink. The rear occupants get their own individual picnic tables and entertainment screens. One of the highlights of the Rolls Royces is the suicidal doors for the rear occupants which means that the rear doors are hinged to the C-pillar instead of the B-pillar. This makes ingress and egresses a lot easier when compared to traditional doors. The doors also house custom Rolls Royce umbrella.
The SUV comes with a split tailgate, voice commands, digital instrument cluster, touchscreen infotainment system, 360-degree parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, electric adjustment for the seats, leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel and much more. Because the doors of the SUV open so wide, it can be a bit difficult to close them as the person would need to reach out. So, the luxury manufacturer offers buttons that can electrically close the doors automatically. Even the boot is quite practical and large so you can take the Cullinan for long drives with a lot of luggage.
The Black Badge is powered by a 6.75-litre V12 petrol engine that has been twin-turbocharged. The SUV is capable of producing 600 bhp of max power and an astounding 900 Nm of peak torque. The power is transmitted to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. When compared the standard Cullinan produces 29 PS less and the torque output is also 50 Nm less. There are also some Black Badge Cullinan in India. Some of the owners include Mukesh Ambani and Naseer Khan. In India, the Black Badge Cullinan costs Rs. 8.20 Crores ex-showroom which means it would cost more than Rs. 10 Crores on-road.
