The Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge has been officially revealed to the world. This Black Badge version of the Cullinan gets a slew of exterior and styling changes to go along with its badge and also a more powerful engine. The Wraith, Ghost and Dawn are already available in the Black Badge version.
Starting off with the exteriors, this version of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan gets a gloss black coat of paint which gives it the name 'Cullinan Black Badge'. The usual chrome-laden elements such as front grille surround, side frame finishers, boot handle, boot trim, lower air inlet finisher and exhaust pipes now get an all-black treatment. This intriguing gloss black paint coats the entire exteriors of the Cullinan, so much so, that even the Spirit of Ecstacy comes dipped in the dark hue. The lights housing get darker inserts which goes along well with the overall intriguing theme of the super-luxury SUV. On the sides, it flaunts new 22-inch forged alloy wheels which complement the overall darker aesthetics of the Cullinan. Bright-red brake callipers peek out of the alloys, highlighting its sporty and muscular intent.
Inside, the Cullinan Black Badge gets black leather seats with an astonishing yellow detailing spreading across its cabin. It features a headliner woven with fibre optic lights which was first premiered in the 2016 Wraith.
On the mechanical front, it sources 600 PS of maximum power and 900 Nm of peak torque from the standard Cullinan's 6.75-litre V12 engine which comes mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The very same engine delivers 571 PS and 850 Nm in the standard Cullinan. The economy figures of the Cullinan Black Badge are yet to be out.
The price of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge is yet to be announced. Whether or not this model makes it to the Indian market is yet to be seen. If launched, it is expected to demand close to 20% higher premium than the standard Cullinan which was launched in India at INR 6.95 crore (ex-showroom, pan-India).
