We rarely hear about Rolls-Royce since it is a company that does not necessarily have the advantage of causing a sensation. Let’s just say that its success is based on word of mouth between its owners. Nevertheless, the brand has become a symbol of prestige and success despite everything, which means that even if you are rich and famous, you need a Rolls-Royce. In some cases, even a regular or “regular” model, if you can call it that, is not enough and that’s where the Black Badge version comes in.
If the brand’s vehicles are very conservative and change very little over time, it sometimes happens that engineers concoct particular editions on occasion and it is in this way that the Black Badge was born . As you might have guessed, several models have benefited from this aesthetic update during the history of the brand and it is now the Cullinan, the brand’s SUV, to benefit from it.
The key elements of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge are fairly obvious. First, there is this huge, typical brand grille that has been dyed black. In fact, everything that could have been chrome or brushed aluminum on the regular Cullinan is now black and that is what gives the Cullinan Black Badge such an imposing appearance. The interior of the lighthouses has also been painted black. Not to mention that this unique version also benefits from its own rims. And don’t forget the logo of The Spirit of Ecstasy brand, which too has a darker finish to balance the overall appearance of the vehicle.
Inside, the effects of the Black Badge finish are less noticeable since this is usually where the level of personalization is highest. In fact, the only way to know that you are in a Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge, is thanks to carbon fiber, a material that is generally associated with motor racing, but which still provides its lot of prestige due to its great value.
If the majority of Cullinan owners prefer the rear seats, it happens that some owners take the wheel on occasion and it is for this reason that the SUV of the British manufacturer is powered by a monstrous 6.8-liter V12 which displays a power 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. This power will be increased to 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque in the coming months. However, the real advantage of this engine is that it allows you to accelerate quickly and go quickly in comfort, and it is on this principle that the Rolls-Royce brand has founded its reputation in last years.
If you are looking for a model that stands out from the crowd and certainly catches the eye, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan is definitely the vehicle for you. However, with its base price of more than $ 400,000, it is certainly not suitable for all budgets. And for the Black Badge version, there is a slight supplement of a few tens of thousands of dollars and even at this price, you have not yet take a look at the list of options offered by the brand and I can assure you that the latter is very long. However, if you can afford it and you like the Cullinan, do not hesitate to pack it up, because that is exactly why the brand exists.
