Rolls Royce introduces 1:8 scale replica of Cullinan SUV

By CARSIFU | 22 May 2020

LONDON: Roll-Royce presented a 1:8 scale model replica of its ultra-luxury Cullinan sports utility vehicle, but that's not all because whatever its clients wish to bespoke their vehicle with, so it can be done with this scaled-down version.

The authentic 1:8 scale replica of the Cullinan has had each miniature individually hand-crafted to the client’s specification with access to over 1,000 individual components - a process that would take up 450 hours - that's over half the time needed to build a full-sized Cullinan. And yes, the miniature is also built at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex - England.

The replica is hand-painted using the luxury marque's colour-matched paint of around 40,000 ‘standard’ colours before being hand-polished and adding the "coachline" using a fine brush - just like the original.

It comes with fully-functioning exterior lights operated by a Cullinan-branded remote control while the bonnet hides the perfect likeness of the 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 engine.

On opening the coach doors, illuminated treadplates are revealed which leads into an interior fitted with wood finishes, seat piping, headrest embroideries or other more bespoked options.

The model is presented in a display case at almost a metre in length as it rests upon a gloss-black base mounted on a plinth and covered by a Perspex window that can be removed to enable the minutiae of the doors, luggage compartment and engine bay to be further viewed in detail.

“This scale replica brings a new dimension to Cullinan’s Effortless, Everywhere philosophy. Our super-luxury SUV is now as perfectly at ease in the serene surroundings of its owner’s residence as it is in the most challenging and hostile terrain on Earth. It is not just about the big things: we seek and achieve greatness in everything we do, down to the smallest item and minutest detail,” said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars chief executive Torsten Müller-Ötvös.
