When Rolls-Royce announced three years ago that it would launch Cullinan, it did so in the knowledge that its customers around the world had asked it to build “The Rolls-Royce of SUVs”, with luxury, performance and usability not seen before in the SUV market. Today, we have the great pleasure of announcing that guests of Salon Privé, the UK’s most exclusive automotive event, will have a rare opportunity to experience this extraordinary motor car in person throughout the three-day event.
Salon Privé is the epitome of a quintessentially English day out. A stunning, relaxing and intimate Garden Party set amongst the spectacular grounds of ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’, Blenheim Palace, it welcomes several thousand discerning guests each year who attend to enjoy the lavish hospitality of Lobster & Pommery Champagne and experience the very latest models presented by the world’s most famous as well as prestigious manufacturers.
It is the perfect opportunity for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars to present Cullinan and owners David & Andrew Bagley are thrilled at the prospect of welcoming this most famous of automotive marques back to their event. ‘With Cullinan, Rolls-Royce has managed to combine class-leading on-road behaviour with effortless off-road all-terrain capability – it is a truly astonishing car’, commented Sales Director & Co-Founder, David Bagley.
Rolls-Royce’s proprietary all-aluminium architecture, the Architecture of Luxury, gave the craftspeople, engineers and designers at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, complete freedom to create the most technologically advanced luxury SUV in the world. The new 6.75 litre twin-turbo V12 has been completely reworked to deliver 563bhp/420kW and 850Nm of torque at the lowest possible revolutions (1,600 rpm) and, when mated to the all-new all-wheel drive and all-wheel steer system, an experience that is truly effortless, everywhere.
