Controversial tuner Mansory got his hands on the Rolls-Royce Cullinan about a year ago when he launched a questionable package for the world’s most opulent SUV. Now he’s back with a new take on Goodwood’s first high-riding model, and suffice to say, this is another polarizing kit. Dressed in British Racing Green and fitted with a widebody package, extravagant luxury is an ode to excess.
The Cullinan is anything but sporty, and yet Mansory decided to go for quad tailpipes and a big roof spoiler, not to mention fake vents on the rear pillar. Up front there is an illuminated grille as the tuner was likely inspired by the last generation Ghost, the first Rolls-Royce car to have a bright grille. Additional LED daytime running lights at the bottom of the custom front bumper have also been added.
The interior is a cow’s worst nightmare as virtually every surface has been covered in leather. The other predominant material used in the lavish interior is wood, visible on the dashboard, front and rear center console, door cards and on the rear seat divider. Getting back to leather, it features an intricate wave-like pattern on the doors where it replaces the cream finish for a white look.
The end result suits Mansory, who also worked on the Cullinan’s massive V12 engine. The 6.75-liter twin-turbo now puts out 601 horsepower and a whopping 700 pound-feet (950 Newton-meters) to eclipse even the Black Badge trim when it comes to torque. Despite its colossal weight, the Rolls-Royce SUV now reaches 100 km / h (62 mph) in five seconds and peaks at 280 km / h (174 mph).
It is always interesting to see an ultra high-end vehicle entrusted to an aftermarket specialist, given that Rolls-Royce already offers almost endless possibilities for customization. Maybe the person who bought this Cullinan wanted to try something new or the SUV recently changed hands and the new owner reached out to Mansory for a drastic change of look. Either way, the end result is really striking, but not necessarily in a good way.
