Named for the 3,106-carat Cullinan Diamond, the largest rough-cut diamond ever found on Earth, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan represented a paradigm shift for the iconic British ultra-luxury automaker as its first sport utility vehicle. Having long resisted pressure to enter the luxury all-terrain market, the company’s hand was forced following the celebrated debuts of competing models such as the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus.

Though it was engineered to be a true SUV, Rolls-Royce ensured the model continued the brand’s iconic ride quality by basing it on the same aluminum spaceframe chassis as the flagship Phantom VIII. The rigid structure features a double-wishbone, self-levelling air suspension with electronically controlled dampers and a revolutionary chassis management system termed “The Flagbearer.” The system employs a remote camera integrated into the front windscreen which monitors the road ahead and proactively adjusts the suspension to brace for approaching irregularities. Once completed, the Cullinan was tested in a unique partnership with National Geographic which saw the SUV put through a gauntlet of austere terrains around the globe. So impressed with their achievement, some Rolls-Royce engineers have referred to the Cullinan’s wafting driving dynamics as a “magic carpet ride.”

Power aplenty came from BMW’s familiar 6.75-liter V-12 engine fed by twin turbochargers to produce almost 600 horsepower and more than 600 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a ZF 8HP eight-speed gearbox, a transmission designed especially for the BMW V-12 engine, the Cullinan can dash to 60 mph in under five seconds on its way to a top speed north of 150 mph—feats made all the more remarkably when considering the Cullinan’s prodigious, three-ton curb weight.

In the Fichtel Mountains of Northeast Bavaria exists a firm for those treasured few clients for whom the stock Cullinan is not special enough. For the better part of the last 40 years, Mansory has been creating Rolls-Royces tailored to the whims of its exacting clients around the world from its headquarters in Brand, Germany. Its expertise in creating carbon-fiber componentry is so highly regarded that the worlds most renowned automakers have sub-contracted Mansory to develop original equipment for their production models.

One such Mansory-enhanced Cullinan is offered here. Spectacularly finished in Arctic White over Mandarin Orange trim, it wears Mansory’s signature 18-piece widebody kit with fully forged wheels. Rolls-Royce’s familiar rearward-opening doors give way to one of the most sumptuous, bespoke passenger compartments ever produced, with the bright Mandarin Orange custom leather upholstery contrasting beautifully with the interior’s other exquisite fitments, all encompassed under the stunning signature headliner that illuminates like the night sky. A tasteful upgrade that helps the car further stand out, every piece of chrome including the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament was redone in satin finish.

Platinum Motorsport in Los Angeles, well-known in the industry for its prolific work customizing luxury automobiles, expertly outfitted this Rolls-Royce Cullinan Mansory with its custom features. With Mansory kits proving to be so popular and exceedingly costly, fake kits or knockoffs have emerged—much like with couture fashion and high-end horology—making this authentic example, which includes its original certificate authenticity, all the more exceptional.

With a presence unmatched by anything on the road, exuding exclusivity outmatching even other Rolls-Royce models, this Cullinan Mansory is tailor-made for those seeking the ultimate, bespoke, ultra-luxury experience, one that is fresh, unique, and nearly impossible to replicate, ensuring unrivaled status and clout wherever it takes you.
