Mansory-tuned Rolls-Royce Cullinan is dubious decadence

Posted on

German tuner Mansory is not subtle, but his latest version of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan goes above and beyond in terms of flamboyance. It celebrated the opening of its first showroom in Dubai by giving the British SUV a love-it-or-hate-it redesign inside and out.

Almost every part of the Cullinan’s exterior has been modified. Mansory installed a full body kit that included a deeper front bumper with additional air intakes and a splitter, vents chiseled into the fenders, side skirts, a spoiler above the rear window and a hefty rear diffuser. Flared wheel arches cover 24-inch forged wheels, and many of the exterior additions have a black, gray, and white finish that almost resembles granite, a resemblance we suspect is intentional. And don’t look for chrome: the clear parts are blacked out to give the SUV a more sinister look.

Inside, the granite finish appears on most trim parts and Mansory has applied leather upholstery with a wave-like motif to the door panels and center consoles – there are two in the Cullinan. The rear passenger enjoys individual power seats upholstered in different colours, tray tables integrated into the front seat backs and a outline of the United Arab Emirates in the headliner. The same outline is stitched into the rear headrests and seat belts, which also get a white Mansory-branded stripe.

Mansory hasn’t released precise tech specs, but we know it hasn’t left the drivetrain untouched. It quotes 610 horsepower and 701 pound-feet of torque, while the standard Cullinan’s 6.75-liter V12 delivers 563 and 627, respectively. Another detail that has not yet been released is the pricing. But if you have to ask, chances are you’re not the kind of customer who wants to lure Mansory into his showroom.
