“It had just been donated by somebody. Don’t know who donated it. It’s taxed and comes with a machine gun.”

Behold: Cullinan – the Rolls Royce of SUVs. And not figuratively.

The luxury marque’s first foray into the world of sports utility vehicles, named after the largest rough diamond ever found, is a twin turbo V12 with rear suicide doors, a separate cargo compartment and an automatic lowering mechanism that drops the chassis 4cm when the driver approaches.

Delivery from 2019 with prices starting at €272,750.

Behold the Rolls-Royce Wraith Luminary Collection – a bespoke edition of an already bespoke luxury car, limited to 55 examples. 

Sunburst Grey paint changes from grey to copper when hit by the sun. Tudor Oak cabin veneer is perforated by a ‘constellation’ of 176 LEDs.1,340 fibre-optic lights in the headliner recreate the night sky with eight shooting stars that cross overhead as you drive. Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös describes it thus:

…progressive and trailblazing; the pinnacle in hand-crafted luxury. This is a motor car that celebrates visionaries who achieve eminence in their respective fields. Indeed, this collection is for the world’s luminaries.

Price not yet released but if you have to ask then you’re a dreadful little oik.
