Every inch and every pound a Rolls-Royce, the Cullinan is named after the largest gem-quality diamond ever discovered. Stuated at the top of the ultra-luxury SUV pyramid, its road manners, which the manufacturer equates to a “magic carpet ride,” are as composed as the stately Rolls-Royce Phantom’s, and one gets the sense that Goodwood built the world’s costliest and most opulent SUV not just because they can, but because their customers demanded it. Rear-wheel steering effectively shortens the wheelbase for tight maneuvers, and enhances handling response overall. The console-mounted “Off Road” button sets traction and air-suspension ride-height, elevating the Cullinan sufficiently to traverse a 22-inch body of water. A challenge which we imagine few Cullinans will ever encounter.
