2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge Price & Interior – This is the 2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan black badge. And it is quite simply the most luxurious SUV ever made. The Cullinan is Rolls Royces SUV, and I already reviewed a regular Cullinan when it came out about a year and a half ago. The black badge takes things even further. And today I’m going to review this car and show you what I mean.
2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Changes
So let’s talk Cullinan black badge. 2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge is essentially a more focused, more luxurious, more refined, more exclusive version of the standard Cullinan. It replaces a lot of the chrome trim with black, which looks more modern. There’s also a power boost. The regular Conan has 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. This has 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, impressive numbers. Although both Cullinan models share the same 6.75 liter V12. And then there’s the luxury, the regular Cullinan I reviewed was pretty regular. Fairly close to its starting price of around 325 thousand dollars.
The black badge starts at 380 thousand dollars. And this one has a lot of options and extras and features that drive that figure to a sticker price of 480 thousand dollars for this one. That makes this one of the most expensive SUVs ever built. And today I’m going to show you what makes the Cullinan black badge so expensive. First, I’m gonna take you on a tour of this Cullinan. And I’m going to show you all of the interesting quirks and features of the world’s most expensive SUV.
Alright, I’m gonna start the quicksand features of this Cullinan. The fact that in the cargo area, there is no dog warning label. Seriously this warning label has an image of a dog and a line through it. Indicating no dogs, this was not put on by the dealership. This is a Rolls-Royce factory warning label that is the level of insanity we’re dealing with this vehicle. I’m gonna explain that no dog warning label in a few minutes. But first, I want to get inside the Cullinan. And I want to talk about the back, which was where most of the luxury insanity in this car is.
Now to get into the back, you simply opened the door, which is rear-hinged. The door opens backward of a regular car door. And inside this rear-hinged door, there’s an umbrella. You just push this little button, and an umbrella pops out. Now that seems like a pretty interesting quirk. But it’s even more interesting if you understand why they’ve done it. It’s forest chauffeur, you see the chauffeur comes to the back door. Pulls it open then pushes the button to pop out the umbrella. Puts it up all in one fluid motion, so he can let the wealthy person out of the back, and they don’t have to get rained on. And that’s why the door is hinged in the back. And it’s why the umbrella is stuck right here in the door.
But none of that stuff is the craziest thing about the rear door. That honor goes to you’re sitting back here, you’ve just spent a half-million dollars for an SUV. You don’t want to close your own door. So Rolls Royce makes it easy, you see this little button next to the rear door near the ceiling. You push that, and then the door closes automatically. And then you’re free from the encumbrances of the outside world. You got to admit that’s a pretty cool luxury feature.
And next, we move on to the backseat of the 2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge. Where you’re met with some truly unbelievable luxury features. To start a moment ago, you may have noticed I wasn’t wearing any shoes. I have my socks on, and that’s because this vehicle has lambswool floor mats. Now some really high-end cars do have a lambswool. But these are the fluffiest, softest, nicest floor mats I have ever felt in my entire life. I don’t have rugs in my home that are as nice as the floor mats in this car. It’s like petting the softest fluffiest baby animal you’ll ever touch, truly incredible. And so I suggested I had to take off my shoes because I don’t want to get even a speck of dirt on the lands wool.
And those formats are just the beginning back here. This car has the starry night headliner. If you’ve watched anything about Rolls Royce in the last few years, you know about this. A headliner that looks like a starry night sky, thanks fiber optics all throughout the headliner. And it’s a very cool touch, and it gives you a very luxurious feel. Now you can turn on the starry night headliner with this little star button back here. You push that, and that turns it on or off.
Also, in that vicinity, you’ll notice another star button. That is the dimmer, you can brighten or dim the starry night headliner by pressing that button. But by now, the starry night headliner is kind of old news for Rolls-Royce. Except for this, Cullinan adds a rather interesting new feature, shooting stars. There are periodic shooting stars throughout the headliner. Now they don’t always happen in the same place. And they’re not very frequent just like actual shooting stars. You have to kind of be looking for them. But eventually, you will see them shoot across your headliner. Adding even more ridiculousness to the starry night headliner in these Rolls Royces. I love this little touch, and it gets so much better.
The Cullinan has rear-seat picnic tables. So you’re sitting back here, and you want to have a little meal or open up your laptop on the go. You have a little table to do it. Not all that unusual a lot of high-end luxury cars have that. But in this car, they’re power operated. Push this little button, and the picnic table automatically extends for you to use it. You want the picnic table to go away, no problem. Push the button again, and the picnic table autumn folds into place. How hard was it an old Rolls-Royce model to just manually fold down your picnic table, not hard? But now it’s even easier.
And things get even better from there. Press the little button to drop the picnic table. And you’ll notice behind the picnic table is a screen. So how do you access that, well there’s a button on the other side of the seat? You push that, and the screen automatically extends until it is facing you. And then you have this 2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge screen back here you can use to control various different things. Now a couple of highlights from the screen situation back here. You have heated seats in the back, that’s pretty standard. But you can also use the screen to turn on your heated armrests. Just in case you weren’t quite getting enough heat from your heated seats, that’s pretty impressive.
You also have an onboard computer back here, and the screen displays various vehicle information. You can see fuel economy, average speed, and you can even see your range until you run out of fuel. So you can sit back here and monitor your driver while he’s chauffeuring you around. Of course, you also have other options with this screen. Your typical stuff, you can use it to set a navigation destination. Which will then go to the front screen, the driver can follow it. Or you can change the radio station back here the media whatever you’re listening to. Or you can hook up a telephone via Bluetooth, and that will, of course, go through the speakers.
