Additionally, this Rolls-Royce has no tachometer, but rather a potentiometer, which indicates how much power is still available. Plenty, as it turns out. There are no digital instruments, a navigation monitor and some electronic helpers like a rear view camera or adaptive cruise control. An off-road button in the centre console uses air suspension to raise the 2.7-tonne car by 40 millimetres, and various driving programs can also be selected depending on the surface. In addition, the Cullinan has an electronic downhill aid for the terrain, on the descent this brakes each wheel individually and works so reliably that you can carelessly descend even slopes that (as can be seen in the Rolls-Royce videos) serve as ski slopes in winter. Not only does the engine drive all four wheels, it also steers all four wheels, the rear wheels swivel by up to three degrees so the huge car can also make surprisingly tight turns without having to move forwards or backwards. But a Rolls-Royce would not be Rolls-Royce if it did not offer the traditional amenities of the luxury brand in addition to its extreme off-road capability. The interior is dominated by the finest leather which Rolls-Royce only imports from the best cattle breeders in the Alpine foothills. The simple elegance is completed by real wood elements covered with complicated veneer patterns. Above the heads of the occupants there is a starry sky of light points, which you can have designed according to your own ideas. And the colossal boot space of a Rolls-Royce can either be equipped with a recreation module with tailor-made inserts for drones, for fly fishing or with space for photographic equipment or with the Viewing Suite where it becomes a viewing platform with a cocktail table. My own opinion: this makes the Cullinan the first Rolls-Royce SUV to express a very personal understanding of luxury. Congratulations.
