Porsche’s Cayenne, Lamborghini’s Urus, and Bentley’s Bentayga proved that high-income buyers like an additional sense of utility from their luxury vehicles, and Rolls-Royce’s foray into SUVs thus became inevitable.
In 2018, the automaker introduced buyers to the Cullinan, a full-sized luxury SUV named after the Cullinan Diamond, the largest rough diamond in the world. It became an immediate success, and even today, Rolls-Royce can barely keep up with demand.
Thankfully, Falcon Car Rental specializes in providing drivers just like you with a luxury SUV rental in Miami, so we’re happy to provide a Cullinan for your next trip.
1. It Has a 563 hp Twin-Turbo V12
Contrary to their image, Rolls-Royces are stupendously powerful. Despite a curb weight of more than 6,000 pounds, the Cullinan is capable of sub-five-second 0-60 runs and will break into the 12s in the ¼ mile. Power is smooth, silent, and effortless, and even with its enormous V12 that pushes over three tons, it can still achieve 20 MPG on the highway.
Of particular interest in the gauge cluster is the tachometer, or, instead, the lack of one. What you’ll find in its place is a “power reserve gauge,” which tells you how much power the V12 engine has left. Put your right foot to the floor, and the gauge will read “zero” since you’re using all of the available power.
2. It Has Picnic Tables and Screens in Back
If you’ve ever seen pictures of the back seats of a Rolls-Royce, you no doubt noticed the “picnic tables” that fold down from the rear of the front seats. Today, buyers expect a bit more, so each rear seat has its own 12-inch touchscreen as well.
These screens can play TV shows and movies from your choice of streaming services, but they also control many important functions for rear passengers, including seat massagers, individual rear climate zones, and even heated armrests. When you’re done with your screen, simply press the button on the side of the seat to automatically fold it up, then close your picnic table to hide it away.
3. The Back Doors Are Rear Hinged
Rolls-Royce is famous for its rear-hinged doors that make entering and exiting much easier and allow chauffeurs to open the doors and get out of the way of the occupants quickly. Speaking of chauffeurs, the rear doors contain a surprise: Each contains an umbrella so that a chauffeur can ensure that their employers stay dry.
If that weren’t enough, the rear doors are also powered! They must be opened manually, but rear passengers can press a button near the ceiling and have the doors close by themselves. Once shut, the outside world disappears, and occupants can sit in serenity. Take your shoes off and marvel at the interior’s wool floormats, softer and fluffier than any pillow you’ve ever felt.
4. The Spirit of Ecstasy’s Disappearing Trick
One of the most famous hood ornaments in the automotive world is Rolls-Royce’s Spirit of Ecstasy. Standing above the grille, the Spirit of Ecstasy resembles a woman stretched forward, arms behind her and cloth billowing to create the appearance of wings. It’s been a staple on Rolls-Royce hoods for over 110 years.
With the Cullinan, if someone tries to steal it, it will automatically retract into the grille. The second a modern Rolls-Royce detects someone attempting to grab the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, it pops below a trap door.
5. It Has Superb Off-Roading Capabilities
The Cullinan is, after all, a 4-wheel drive SUV. With a dynamic suspension that increases ride height by 40mm, it has plenty of ground clearance for just about any terrain, but it’s not just relying on its ability to clear obstacles.
The Cullinan also features a road-scanning camera that constantly feeds onboard computers essential data about road conditions. The suspension then compensates for pavement irregularities, making it supremely comfortable on and off-road.
To prove its mettle, Rolls-Royce partnered with National Geographic to send adventurer Cory Richards around the world to the most challenging locations possible. Deserts, mountains, rivers, and snow were no match for the Cullinan.
