The car was delivered directly to the hotel I was staying in and it looked really fantastic up close!
They were helpful and very flexible in dealing with my complicated booking, which included a last minute change.
I am really pleased with their service and without a doubt I would recommend them.
It was late to the SUV market but when Rolls Royce got there it followed through on its well-known reputation for opulence. The Rolls Royce Cullinan simply leaves other SUV's in the dust. It is named after one of the most expensive diamonds in the world - the Cullinan, which now has its home in the Tower of London as part of the Queen's jewelry collection. It is at the top of the royal scepter - and the Rolls Royce Cullinan is at the pinnacle of good taste and incredible comfort.
IN keeping with the royal metaphor the Rolls Royce Cullinan is nothing more than a road-worthy palace. The back seat alone has enough space for three generously proportioned adults and a bevy of royal corgis - and even with that crowd, the twin-turbo 6.7-liter V12 powerplant will propel this masterpiece to 60mph in just 4.5 seconds. That is quick off the mark for a vehicle that weighs in the region of three tonnes.
The ride is superlative courtesy of the air suspension that receives information from a forward-looking camera that scans the road ahead and makes automatic adjustments to the ride to provide those who have the (around) $350,000 to spend on this car.
But the third of those three ultra-wealthy riders might have to hitch a ride in a less opulent automobile if the owner decides to opt for one of the (very) many added extras that can be purchased. In this case that would be the center console that replaces the middle back seat with a cooling console which is supplied complete with two top-of-the-range champagne flutes and of course a whisky decanter.
That option also includes rear seats that will provide a massage that would turn the owner of any ultra swanky Beverly Hills day spa into an overnight millionaire.
But what would a massage be without the 'Shooting Star' feature which will (courtesy of hidden fiber optics) turn the roof fabric into a facsimile of our galaxy. Given that sort of functionality and the obvious applicability for those with romance on their minds, the addition of the rear privacy glass and side curtains is a no-brainer.
It (obviously arrives on the doorstep of the mansion (car dealerships are for the common folk) with an automatic four-wheel-drive system. Although it must be said that the target market is unlikely to be engaging in any regular off-road adventures - but it's nice to know that it's there.
The interior with its milled-aluminum accents, box-grain leather, lambs-wool carpeting and exquisite wood trim is what a Rolls is all about - big there is a niggle. That all-digital cluster does detract from the classic gravitas that Rolls Royce has as part of its brand.
The liftgate is part of the Rollers charm. It houses two popup seats and a small table that would be perfect for that day out at the Polo fields.
In short, this is an incredible motor vehicle - and one that Her Majesty would do well to evaluate when it comes time to replace the current lineup of Range Rovers.
