2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan, Effortless Everywhere: The Super Luxury Lifestyle Vehicle

By Shin Takei

Cullinan, the first, Super Luxury SUV from Rolls Royce came about because of demands from a customer base whose profile includes young or young at heart, affluent, demanding, cutting edge, stylish, leaders in their own fields and successful like the many readers of The 360 Magazine. You want to go all over the place without compromising comfort or quality whether on the highway or off road like in a Rolls Royce kind of way. The Cullinan is imposing as it stands tall and is unmistakably a Rolls Royce. Unlike the familiar two-box SUVs the Cullinan is a three-box design with a trunk area that extends beyond the tailgate. This is reminiscent of Rolls Royce from the 1930s which were equipped with an outside travel trunk for your belongings. The rear luggage area of the Cullinan is separated from the passenger compartment by a glass wall so that the passenger compartment noise level and temperature is controlled for maximum comfort. It will definitely stand out from the crowd and you will be noticed. It is powered by a 6.75 Liter twin-turbo V12 with 563bhp and 627lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive and all wheel steering. Part of the All Aluminum Architecture shared with the new Phanton and future models, it offers incredible rigidity and features that expands the parameters of the flexible chassis.

The Cullinan features doors that open and close by a touch of the remote key or the door handles and the bottom curves inwards so that no trousers or long skirts can be soiled by dripping residue from the rain or having fun mid romping. The car also lowers itself 1.6 inches to make ingress and egress easy. Open the door and a whiff of exclusive leather aroma titillates the olfactory nerves. Beautiful wood veneers, jewel like finish on switches and knobs grace the interior. The high quality of the materials are what you come to expect from Rolls Royce and again Bespoke is the word here and there’s no end to what you can achieve to individualize your very own Cullinan. The central infotainment screen is now touch sensitive but there is the Spirit of Ecstasy dial in case you prefer to use it manually. There are two configurations for the rear seating; the Lounge Seat for owners with family that sits three across of the Individual Seats with a fixed center console that incorporates a drinks cabinet, Rolls Royce crystal whiskey glasses and decanter, champagne flutes and refrigerator. This luxurious feature come in handy when you deploy two rear-facing seats from below the rear luggage area by a touch of a button. These are no cheap jump seats but made to match the other leather material and interior feature sand is called a Viewing Suite. This is an elegant way to watch a cricket match or waves crashing near the ocean. It’s what we call a tail gate party on this side of the pond. By the way, rear seat passengers sit higher than the front so they have a commanding view out the large windows.

The Cullinan is at home on every terrain with the Magic Carpet Ride. There’s a Off-Road button commonly called the Everywhere Button that takes care of surfaces like rough road, gravel, wet grass, mud, snow and sand. This delivers torque to each wheel smoothly and without interruption. With input from electronically controlled shock absorbers, steering inputs, camera info and body and wheel acceleration, the air suspension system adjusts to current conditions a million times a second. In addition to the Off-Road button, there is a Hill Descent button and Air Suspension ride height button that makes it real simple to adjust.

The 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan is a welcome addition to the Super Luxury SUV class with its elegant yet imposing looks and commanding presence. We anticipate the Cullinan to land on our shores late fall so we will be giving it a test drive then.

VP PLAZA ESPAÑA DESIGN 5

Architecture firm b720 designed the modernistic, metallic façade of the hotel, located in the city’s historic center.

Created by Catalan artist Pere Gifre, who is known for his water-inspired sculptures, the hotel’s piece de resistance is an 80 ft. metal fiberglass waterfall sculpture that tumbles from the glass bottom of the 12th floor swimming pool to the ground floor.

VP Plaza España Design’s hallways take on more of an art gallery feel (uplighting and all), with gold leaf whimsical sculptures by Nacho Zubelu flanking the wall opposite the elevators.

Spanish interior design firm Studio Gronda designed the hotel’s 12th floor Gingko Sky Bar, which is framed by laser-cut, engraved metal sheets that represent the ginkgo leaf, while the inside recreates a wooded forest with corrugated wood panels that rely on lighting effects to create a natural ambiance. A ceiling facetted with mirrors, where the reflections of Plaza de España’s verdant setting mix with the Sky Bar, multiplies the sensation of airiness.

The hotel’s reception areas were designed by Spanish interior design firm Cuarto Interior, and feature a 20 ft. glass curtains, materials such as natural stone from India and bronze, complimented by colorful works of art by Jan Hendrix.

VP Plaza España Design’s 214 rooms are characterized by their large size, views and comfort – all are soundproofed and have double doors. Spanish firm Cuarto Interior interprets chiaroscuro through the use with the natural woods and partitioned ceilings. The rooms contain signed works of art by contemporary artists including Dario Urzay and Fernando Palacios.

The City of New York had a Bermuda Style Session which left a lasting impression. The essence of Bermuda was captured throughout the interior and decor of the locale. Floral pattern seating coupled with pops of pineapples alongside of tropical wallpaper, featuring their iconic fruit.

The ambiance was set with a skillful mix of throwbacks, Soca and Bermudian classics. And, DJ Damon DeGraff really worked the turntables! The music persuaded attendees to two-step, yet tranquil enough to hold a conversation. The guests consisted of the following: Bermuda Tourism Authority; Bermudian, Creative Artist and Sip & Stroke instructor Alshante Foggo; natives displaying their brands and the honorable Bermuda Minister of Tourism and Economic Development, Mr. Jahmal Simmons.

This event threw a great reflection on their culture. The 24-mile long island has an immense sense of fashion, music and adventure for tourist engagement.

Los Angeles Auto Show

A RIDE INTO LIFESTYLE

All four distinct model lines have received upgrades for 2018. Significant updates to the Ghibli and Levante MY18 include the addition of GranLusso and GranSport trims, previously introduced in the Quattroporte range. With the new Maserati range strategy, customers can now choose one of two distinct trims for the Levante and the Ghibli: GranSport or GranLusso. GranSport was conceived to meet the demands of a sportier expression of the high-end lifestyle, while the sophisticated and luxurious GranLusso cabin combines a choice of Ermenegildo Zegna silk or full premium Italian leather upholstery, and includes upgrades such as wood trim and wooden/leather steering wheel.
