Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge Comes To UAE In New Iced Brenner Green Color
Named after one of the largest diamonds ever discovered by mankind in modern times, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan is pretty eye-catching. As one of the prestigious brand’s flagship vehicles, the Cullinan is a large premium SUV that’s unabashedly in-your-face without any remorse. If you’re in Dubai, you wouldn’t have to strain your eyes much to spot one of these at any upscale neighborhood.
However, Rolls-Royce thinks that it can do better to further the exclusivity appeal of its SUV even more. Therefore, the British marque has now introduced the even more niche Iced Brenner Green version of the Cullinan – that too in its most rowdy Black Badge avatar. The Cullinan Black Badge, in essence, is for those in the top 1 percent that think the standard model is just a tad too tame.
Just to jog your memory, the Black Badge version of the Cullinan comes with the same twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V12 engine found in the ‘regular’ model. However, in the case of the Black Badge, this powerplant has been tweaked to produce 600 horsepower and 900Nm of velvety-smooth yet locomotive-like torque. The power continues to be channeled through an 8-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels. Despite tipping the scales at around 2.8 tons, this SUV will still hit 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds! For some semblance of normalcy, RR has restricted the Cullinan Black Badge to a top speed of 250 km/h – oh, such a calamity!
What does the exterior of the Iced Brenner Green version of the Cullinan Black Badge hold?
Apart from the fact that it’s still a Black Badge variant of the Cullinan, Rolls-Royce has gone the extra mile when it comes to this special edition. To begin with, the exterior is now painted in a magnificent and captivating Iced Brenner Green shade. The newly-created shade consists of three different coats to achieve the final satin finish that also shimmers beautifully. This was done by applying a high-quality primer, followed by a base coat and then the iced clear coat.
Of course, since this is Rolls-Royce, there's a dedicated unit behind the whole paint department as well - they're called the "Exterior Surface Centre" team. If you want a customized Black Badge Roller, this Is the team that will be taking on the responsibility of your car's paint job. As technical as the job is, RR's expert paint team ensures that each Iced Brenner Green Cullinan comes out with a paint thickness ranging between 50-60 microns, depending on the area. All of this finished in perfect harmony with the rest of the car.
Rolls-Royce has made sure that each example features contrasting red brake calipers and a custom black Spirit of Ecstasy. To make sure that all of this goes as smoothly and error-free as possible, Rolls-Royce has employed state-of-the-art robots and in-house experts to conduct and monitor the whole painting process. With up to 3 kilograms of paint used on each vehicle, nothing Is left to chance – all eyes are glued to each and every unit that’s commissioned. After all, the esteemed customers of such a remarkable vehicle won’t tolerate any errors, and Rolls-Royce is aware of this.
The interior of the Cullinan Black Badge Iced Brenner Green looks just as awesome
While much of the interior is draped in sporty black, this special edition gets dashes of Lime Green accents. This not only breaks the monotony but also adds to a sense of the overall theme of the Iced Brenner Green Cullinan. Then there are the fancy 'Rolls-Royce’' monograms on the headrests that feature the bespoke color scheme, whilst the custom Black Badge Technical Carbon trim gets the same green outlines.
Should you buy one?
Well, if you think that cash flows like the proverbial river in your upscale household, then of course! While a Rolls-Royce has always blessed its owners with enviable eyes in a neighborhood, the Cullinan Black Badge Iced Brenner Green will only accentuate those emotions to the nth degree.
