Rolls-Royce has subtly enhanced its flagship SUV, the Cullinan, imbuing it with a darker spirit while upholding its status as the most expensive off-road conqueror in the world. Typically, after around three to five years, a vehicle undergoes a mid-cycle update to integrate new technologies and remain competitive in its market segment. While many cars may receive new lighting, upgraded interiors with larger screens, and a revised engine lineup during such refreshes, luxury marques like Rolls-Royce focus more on perfecting their already exceptional offerings.

Contrary to expectations of significant powertrain changes following the impressive debut of the electric Spectre by Rolls-Royce, the Cullinan II remains on its distinctive course. Rather than undergoing major engine or design transformations, it opts for subtle adjustments to its look and incorporates some luxurious elements shared with the electric Spectre. Noteworthy is the absence of any substantial power increase or noticeable fuel efficiency improvements, persisting with its opulent, high-powered essence featuring a 600-horsepower engine maintaining its efficiency levels.

The Cullinan Series II continues to establish the benchmark for SUVs and off-road vehicles. It showcases minor visual enhancements like optional 23-inch wheels and understated interior upgrades that demonstrate an even deeper level of craftsmanship than before. Despite its considerable fuel consumption, ranging from 16 to 16.8 liters per 100 kilometers, the allure of this extravagant giant remains undiminished for its exclusive clientele.

For those desiring a more distinctive Rolls-Royce experience, the Black Badge version remains a favored option. Catering to a younger, more daring demographic, it embraces a darker, more assertive design ethos without significant alterations to the model’s capabilities.

Its authoritative presence is unquestionable, with a 6.8-liter V12 engine delivering 600 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque, ensuring that the Black Badge version continues to command the roads both in performance and visually striking appearance.

Rolls-Royce continues to innovate with interior customizations that are as artistic as they are luxurious. The bespoke perforated leather patterns, inspired by the sky vistas over Goodwood, and the optional Duality Twill fabric crafted from natural bamboo fibers, emphasize the brand’s dedication to premium, tailored detailing. Each detail is meticulously designed to ensure exclusivity, empowering customers to extensively personalize their vehicles, right down to the illuminated Cullinan nameplate and unique motifs, setting a new benchmark in automotive luxury and exclusivity.
