Rolls-Royce Cullinan

Premium performance is one part of the luxury Rolls-Royce experience. A smooth ride that seems to levitate, the world’s best materials inside, and iconic styling mean you’ll make impressions in your new Phantom or Ghost, ride curves in the Wraith, and chart new territory in the Cullinan. Underneath it all are 12 cylinders of power ready to spring. Read on for Rolls-Royce engine specs:
