Rolls-Royce Goes Dark with The Cullinan Black Badge

Following the Wraith, the Ghost and the Dawn, Rolls-Royce introduces the Cullinan Black Badge.

Black Badge reflects the desires of a distinct group of Rolls-Royce clients: men and women who take risks, break rules and build success on their own terms,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Müller-Ötvös added: “In this spirit, the time has come for Rolls-Royce’s boldest and darkest expression of Black Badge yet. The King of the Night, Black Badge Cullinan.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge starts with the signature Black exterior paint. To bring out depth and intensity the multiple layers of paint are hand-polished 10 times. Furthermore, even the famous Spirit of Ecstasy mascot is painted in high gloss black chrome.

Meanwhile, the Rolls-Royce badge has been inverted and now shows silver-on-black. Finally, almost all the chrome surfaces found on the Cullinan were darkened, the front grille surround, side frame finishers, boot handle, boot trim, lower air inlet finisher and exhaust pipes.

As for the exterior finishing touch, the Black Badge-exclusive 22-inch forged alloy wheels seals the deal.

Inside the cabin, Rolls-Royce pushes things even further, starting with a naked-weave carbon-fibre trim. Here’s how insane the process from start to finish is:

Each leaf of Technical Carbon is finished with six coats of lacquer before being left to cure for 72 hours then hand-polished to Rolls-Royce’s hallmark mirror finish. This process takes 21 days and is only deemed complete once every piece is inspected by a craftsperson to ensure complete reflective uniformity across each of the 23 pieces within the car.

Additionally, the Cullinan Black Badge is, of course, getting the famous Rolls-Royce starlight headliner. It is handwoven with 1344 fibre optic lights and is a true reflection of the sky at night.

Rest assured that not everything is black inside the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge as a touch of colour was added on the inside. Indeed, the British manufacturer created a new leather colour, Forge Yellow.

Engine-wise, the Cullinan Black Badge is powered by the 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 developing 592 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.
