This applies not only to the appearance, drive and ambience but also the price. It starts at over 300,000 euros and will be well over 400,000 euros for the vast majority of vehicles. Although the Cullinan is a typical SUV with great ground clearance, powerful shoulders, a high roof and a steep rear, it is not a SUV with a lot of space but let’s not forget, this is a Rolls-Royce. This applies to the imposing front with the huge grill at the feet of the electrically retractable radiator figure as well as to the proud format. There are a few peculiarities that the British allow themselves, the rear doors, as with Phantom and other models, are of course hinged against the direction of travel. And where all the other SUVs have a steep tailgate, the Cullinan has at least the hint of a notchback and thus becomes a bit of a limousine for the rough – so the Cullinan is not just a means of transport. Sure, you could reduce it down to its facts: 5.30 metres long, 1.84 metres high, of mighty stature. 2660 kilograms unloaded weight and 571 hp, plus 250 km/h top speed – electronically limited. Let’s face it, if you read the facts as they are here, you might wonder why you want to head out into the country with soft throne chairs, heated armrests and beyond up to the cooled bar compartment. 106

The Cullinan is a style leader. Time for an SUV for Berlin, a city that’s also ground-­ breaking.
