Rolls-Royce reserves the Black Badge label for a model’s most revered finish. For the Cullinan, the badge meant massaging more power from the brand’s mighty V12 while adding a few exclusive touches. But in the hands of Spofec, the Cullinan gets even nastier. The tuner’s latest Cullinan creation somehow pulls even more power from the engine while adding an aggressive widebody kit.
From the factory, the Black Badged Cullinan produced 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque, which was already a huge increase over the 563 horsepower (420 kW) of the standard Cullinan. However, Spofec goes much further with its engine upgrade – new ignition programming, new injection mapping and higher maximum boost pressure. This increases the output of the 6.7-liter to 707 hp (520 kW) and 785 lb-ft (1060 Nm). The bestial monster can reach 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds.
To round out that power, a host of new bodies widened the Cullinan by 10 centimeters (3.9 inches) at the front and 12 centimeters (4.7 inches) at the rear. The extra girth comes from the tuner’s Overdose fender flares, which include new rocker panels and a new front bumper and functional front spoiler, which flows with the wider fenders. At the rear, Spofec adds a rear spoiler lip and diffuser. The other exterior visual improvement is the huge 24-inch Spofec forged wheels developed with Vossen. The wheels, along with a 40-millimeter shorter ride height, help fill the Cullinan’s wheel wells.
Spofec will also improve the exhaust system, offering a branded stainless steel system with an optional version with actively controlled exhaust flaps. Spofec’s upgrades give the Cullinan more power and a subtle yet menacing new look. It looks fast, even though the weight of the SUV limits its top speed to 250 km / h; however, the extra oomph makes it faster.
