Britain brings to Ukraine the luxury Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV, which has become the most expensive SUV in the world and has historically been important to Rolls-Royce.
The cost of an SUV, depending on the configuration, starts with 12 million hryvnia and reaches 17 million hryvnia, – reports AutoNews.ua.
Named in honor of the greatest in the history of uncut diamonds, Rolls-Royce Cullinan marks the company's new era: this is the first SUV in brand history with turbocharged engines, and for the first time the manufacturer introduced two new products throughout the year. In addition, they regard Ukraine as an important market for British companies, because six orders from our country have been received. But all customer names remain confidential.
The 2.6-ton car is built on the new generation Phantom aluminum platform, whose sales were launched earlier this year. Equipped with the same V12 in a volume of 6.75 liters and has a capacity of 571 hp. and 850 Nm of torque. All these efforts are transmitted to four wheels using an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
Despite the fact that Rolls-Royce cars never complained about the lack of ability to overcome the difficulties of sand and road, this time they developed the all-wheel drive system from the start. All of this is technically supported by BMW, but the uniqueness is present in the form of a Krismer system with self-regulating air suspension. This complex makes millions of calculations every second to adapt to the road.
By pressing the "Everywhere" button, the off-road driving mode is activated: to drive in gravel, broken roads, wet grass, mud, snow or sand. Rolls-Royce Cullinan dipped in Ford with a depth of 540 mm, because the ground clearance of 216 mm can change as needed with a range of +/- 40 mm. This includes allowing you to sit safely in a 1.8 meter high car, pressed onto the road, and load a suitcase.
The salon is made in the best Rolls-Royce style. Here and fleece carpets, and complex entertainment Rolls-Royce entertainment modules, allow you to fully customize the car to your mood. For rear passengers, there are travel tables and screens, refrigerators with bottles and glasses, air ducts for legs, thick curtains in windows, fenced bars, and the ability to order glass that divides the space between the driver and passengers.
The rear sofa can be ordered in multiple versions, and in triple, which will increase the baggage of 560 liters to 1930 liters. The door to the luggage compartment is divided into two parts with an electric drive and can be equipped with a retractable chair with a table for outdoor recreation.
Of course, Cullinan is equipped with a variety of security systems, including a night vision system, looking at the whole with four cameras with panoramic views, collision warnings, cross-traffic warnings, departures at intersections and warning of lane changes.
For all its exclusivity, an SUV of 12,501,530 hryvnia for 8 million does not reach the cost of luxury Phantom. But with the maximum "fill" option, this difference is reduced to 3 million.
