Rolls-Royce Cullinan’s model was an instant success when it came out. The model offered the best combination in the market. It was on point with respect to performance, practicality, and coolness. Now, Rolls-Royce takes the model a notch higher by unveiling another version of the stylish car, the Cullinan Black Badge.
The Black Badge is a dream car designed for adventurous clientele. It packs unique features in the inside, and dark-chrome finishes on the outside, among other extras. Moreover, it racks higher than the standard Cullinan in terms of performance.
Only a few cars from Rolls-Royce carry the Black Badge, and the new Cullinan joins the list as the fourth one. The other stylish cars enjoying the same treatment are Wraith, Ghost, and Dawn.
The Extra Power Behind Rolls-Royce Black Badge
Rolls-Royce Cullinan used a 6.7-liter V12 engine, which generated 563 hp and 627 pound-feet. Those who thought the prior unit was monstrous, you’re mistaken. The new Cullinan uses a similar engine and produces 600 hp and a torque of 664 pound-feet.
Rolls-Royce bothers not to mention the time details like how many seconds it takes to speed up to 60 mph. Even the top speed was not quoted, but the stylish SUV looks quicker than the senior Cullinan.
In terms of power delivery, the Black Badge gets another uptick. For instance, when in a low drive, the revised throttle and huffy gas pedal combine to unleash massive energy. Also, the VIP car takes less prodding to pick up speed.
The seamless performance can not be without the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Together with the newfound power of V12, combine perfectly well. The gearbox shifts seamlessly and holds more rev, allowing more torque to reach down from shorter gearing.
The Interior Pampering and Exterior Styling
The cabin is spacious and also comes lined up with box-grain leather, beautiful wood trim, milled-aluminum accents, and lambs-wool carpeting. To make this model more luxurious, they customized everything inside with whatever customizations a buyer could imagine.
Like a topically Rolls-Royce, its infotainment system comprises a large touchscreen that’s operable from the center console. Another pair of 12.5-inch screens are mounted at the back of the front seats. The luxury car also offers a Wi-Fi hotspot. Likewise, Cullinan features a bespoke audio system, with 18 speakers and 1300 watts.
The exterior remains classical Rolls-Royce. However, the VIP car adds more elegance to the liftgate configuration, where two leather-wrapped seats pop out with a picnic table at the rear door.
The finishing on the hood is that of high-gloss black chrome and extends up to the mounting plates. They also included the same on the front grill, side frame, lower air inlet, truck handle, and trunk trims. Besides, the vertical grilled bars are not polished black but reflect the dark-polished surface.

The combination of Rolls-Royce craftiness and Black Badge treatment makes the SUV tick all posh boxes. Arguably, the model is more prevalent among young millionaires and one of the luxurious SUVs available.

The eagerness in which this 6,069-pound stylish car rides on is fantastic, especially in a straight line. What about stopping? It gets to a halt quickly thanks to the new brake disc and reduced pedal distance.
