Written by Parichay Malvankar

The ‘Black Badge’ from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars reveals a new darker, bolder and sinister alter-ego of their range of cars. The pinnacle of luxury in the SUV space, the Cullinan is now introduced in a Black Badge. Such Black Badge variants were first launched with the Ghost and Wraith, and later the Dawn got the same treatment in 2017.

Changes to the Cullinan Black Badge SUV include 22″ black alloy wheels, blackened rear trim accents, polished finish for the Pantheon grille, black Rolls-Royce logo, new forge yellow accents on the inside & outside, technical carboon veneer trims, shooting star headliner, red brake callipers, and more.

Powering the Cullinan Black Badge is a 6.75L, V12 motor producing 600 PS of power and 900 Nm of torque. This motor gets additional 29 BHP and 50 Nm on the Black Badge trim and the 0-100 kmph sprint time has improved by 0.1 seconds. Rolls-Royce has reworked the air-suspension for firmer driving dynamics of this big luxury SUV. The SUV also gets revised accelerator, transmission and brake mapping for better control. With the press of a ‘Low’ button, one can easily hear the arrival of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge SUV thanks to the new exhaust system. The engine is matched to an 8-speed ZF gearbox.

Highlighting the importance to deliver the best to customers, Rolls-Royce have hand-polished the Cullinan SUV Black Badge 10 times in Goodwood.
