The Rolls-Royce of SUVs is here. Rolls Royce, under the tutelage of Autohub Group, the premium car maker just released its own version of the SUV; the Cullinan. In a stroke of luxurious ingenuity, the Cullinan is named after the biggest diamond ever discovered. Reflecting the characteristics of the precious stone, it projects utmost beauty as well as rock hard build. You can ride in luxury, whether its on the concrete jungle or off-road country. You never had it this good.

Personalised Bespoke Recreational Module and Viewing Suite options to cater to Filipino patrons’ lifestyles, the premium SUV is underpinned by a platform called the ‘Architecture of Luxury’ wholly unique to the brand, which accords the car a level of performance, comfort and refinement never before seen in the SUV segment. Available in 4 or 5 seater setup, the Cullinan leaves nothing to to the imagination.

Mr. Willy Tee Ten, President of Autohub Group

Mr. Willy Tee Ten, President of Autohub Group, authorized distributor of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Manila said, “The Philippines is an SUV country, and we are very excited to launch Cullinan today. Cullinan is the car our customers have been waiting for, perfectly suited for this market with unmistakable presence on and off-road. This is the car that will set the new benchmark for super-luxury in the SUV segment, an all-purpose Rolls-Royce for our captains of industry.”

Mr. Sven Grunwald

Also speaking at the launch, Mr. Sven Grunwald, Asia Pacific Regional Product Manager for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars commented, “Cullinan has been Rolls-Royce’s most anticipated new model, greeted with critical acclaim globally and perfectly equipped for the Philippines. Cullinan will be at the pinnacle of luxury here, with Bespoke capabilities that will complement the varied lifestyles of our highly successful customers.”

The four-seater version of Cullinan, also known as the Individual Seat configuration, provides for the highest level of luxury in the SUV segment.

The two individual rear seats are separated by a Fixed Rear Centre Console, which contains a drinks cabinet with Rolls-Royce whisky glasses and decanter at the front, and champagne flutes and refrigerator in the rear. The seats feature ventilation and massage functions, and can be adjusted over a number of planes to offer ultimate comfort for rear seat passengers over longer journeys.

In this Individual Seating configuration, a truly unique glass partition behind the rear seat isolates the passenger cabin from the luggage compartment, resulting in some of the lowest levels of noise recorded in an SUV cabin, while also protecting Cullinan’s occupants from temperature changes even when the luggage compartment is open. The interior of the Cullinan that was launched is upholstered with a two-tone Selby Grey / Navy Blue leather combination, and an open-pore Circassian Walnut veneer.

Powered by an ultra smooth and powerful Twin Turbo V12, and seemingly floating on air, thanks to its state of the art air-supension, the Cullinan offers power and comfort to its discerning passengers. The exterior still styled by the Rolls trademark; the Pantheon grille sits on a chamfered edge, protruding forward into unknown terrain, all the while guided by the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy.

Cullinan’s safety features are without compare: Night Vision and Vision Assist including daytime and night-time Wildlife & Pedestrian warning; Alertness Assistant; a 4-Camera system with Panoramic View, all-round visibility and helicopter view; Active Cruise Control; Collision Warning; Cross-Traffic Warning, Lane Departure and Lane Change Warning; an industry leading 7×3” High-Resolution Head-Up Display, WiFi hotspot, and the latest Navigation systems

If you have a spare Php53M, you can have this piece of automotive art. Sure, it’s a little pricey, but you deserve to travel, and enjoy a good drink, in style.

Words cannot do justice to this luxurious SUV. Like a fine diamond, it should be appreciated first hand. Take a glimpse of the Cullinan at the Rolls Royce Showroom in BGC. It will be worth your while.
