Carlex Design takes the Rolls-Royce Cullinan to another level of opulence
Very few vehicles run the word “luxury” as well as a Roll-Royce. Setting benchmarks in sheer opulence has always been a hallmark of Rolls-Royce. So when Rolls-Royce announced the launch of an SUV a few years ago, the world sat up and took notice. Entered the Rolls-Royce Cullinan in 2018, which instantly became the world’s most luxurious SUV – a title it still holds even after four years of its arrival for a production SUV.
Almost half a decade has passed and there are no significant updates in the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. While the Cullinan still doesn’t lack in grandeur, some people now want more from the SUV and can go the extra mile to make it more special. With this possibility in mind, Polish car customization specialist Carlex Design came up with an exclusive Yachting Edition for the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. In the past, Carlex Design has offered exclusive customization work for high-end vehicles, such as the Mercedes-AMG G63. It’s Cullinan’s turn now, and we have to say that this exquisite Yachting Edition has made the Cullinan even more desirable inside and out.
An essence of additional wealth outside
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is a majestic SUV from the outside. Its dimensions and vertical position make it an imposing SUV to look at. Although it lacks the ruggedness of a traditional go-anywhere SUV, it has the essential road presence and size required for an SUV. With its Yachting Edition, Carlex Design has ensured that this imposing look of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan is even richer.
The most remarkable highlight of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Yachting Edition is its exquisite color palette. Carlex Design chose the two most subtle colors for a vehicle – black and silver and created a contrasting two-tone shade, which makes the Cullinan even more regal. The lower body of this Cullinan, consisting of the decklid, door panels, fenders and bumpers, has been given a silver paint job, which is hand brushed and has an aluminum-like finish. . On the other hand, the upper part of the SUV, including the roof, pillars, bonnet and grille surrounds, gets a glossy black finish.
Next comes the decoration work, which Carlex Design has done perfectly with a subtle use of emblems all around. This Rolls-Royce Cullinan Yachting Edition retains the iconic “Spirit of Ecstacy” on its bonnet, like all other Rolls-Royces. However, to distinguish it from other “regular” Cullinans, Carlex Design gave it a touch of personalization by adding a Carlex badge to the hood above the grille. This SUV also receives Carlex Design emblems on the front fender logos, D-pillars and alloy wheel covers. The latest change to this Cullinan that helps this SUV take on a whole new stance is the addition of the new bespoke 22-inch silver alloy wheels.
Control at its best for the front row
The excellence of the Carlex Design Yachting Edition for the Rolls-Royce Cullinan is so good that we pay attention to the changes of the front and rear rows in separate sections. Here, we’ll tell you how Carlex Design raised the wealth bars to number one.
Up front, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Yachting Edition from Carlex Design gets reshaped seats trimmed in plain and perforated off-white leather, which receive embossed patterns from Carlex Design and Yachting Edition. The Cullinan’s round-themed steering wheel gets a two-tone finish in plain and perforated leather with off-white and brown leather, as well as wood coverings for the spokes.
The upper and lower layers of the instrument panel, front center console, front armrest, pillars and door panels feature premium brown colored leather trim, while the roof liner and pillars front have rich Alcantara trim. The middle layer of the dashboard features two different keys. The top layer incorporating the instrument console AC vents and the rotating cover for the infotainment system gets a dark wood finish. The lower layer underneath will have a brushed silver finish, which extends to the center console. The floor is paneled in varnished wood, which serves as doormats for the front passengers.
Improved opulent experience in the back row
The rear row of this Carlex Design Rolls-Royce Cullinan Yachting Edition has a two-seater layout, with the large separation tunnel between the seats adding to the feeling of luxury. The rear row also mimics many of the changes introduced for the front row.
At the rear, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Yachting Edition gets the same off-white perforated leather finish for the seats, which are embossed with Carlex Design and Yachting Edition logos. The dividing tunnel between the seats, the door panels and the rear parts of the seats is covered in brown leather. The front upper half of the splitter tunnel and the upper surfaces of the folding trays behind the seats, above which rest the rear entertainment screens, are given a textured wood finish. At the rear too, the floor is treated with varnished wooden panels for the rear passengers.
Carlex Design did not reveal the price of the Yachting Edition, as it is only available on request. But if you ask us, those extra custom keys in this exclusive edition are worth expanding on.
