The Detail of This Rolls-Royce Cullinan Scale Model Will Blow Your Mind As Will The Price
It’s literally just as detailed as the real thing.by Tudor Rus, on
Rolls-Royce’s miniature Cullinan goes hand in hand with what Sir Henry Royce used to say about perfection: small things make it, but it itself is no small thing. Apparently, this creed doesn’t apply just to RR’s million-dollar cars destined for the One Percent, but also to the company’s toys.
Enter the most affordable Cullinan... in the world
A 1:8 replica of the real Cullinan, this little desk wonder is just as intricate as the full-size SUV.
In fact, Rolls-Royce says every detail found on the real car is mirrored by it, and knowing the brand’s relentlessness in delivery top-shelf products, we tend to take that statement as true.
We’re also told that more than 1,000 hand-made bits and bobs are joined together and painted to produce the Cullinan scale model. On top of that, the artisans handling the ’assembly’ process need 450 hours to finish one example.
Oh, and speaking of painting. That’s the same paint customers can specify for their cars, as they’re given the opportunity to choose from around 40,000 standard hues or, of course, come up with their own colors.
Now let’s have a look at some of the internals, shall we? The exterior lights are not just for show - in fact, they are, but they actually work - and the same can be said about the illuminated treadplates that light up when the doors are open.
You can control the the exterior lighting setup via a remote control and if we are to go into deeper detail, there’s even a replica of the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V-12 hiding under the hood of the scale model.
Luxury-wise, here’s what went into creating the model’s interior:
- headrest embroidery
- wood finishes
- actual stitching
- seat piping
So, yeah, color us impressed. Also, there’s no word on price, which should be pretty spicy by any standards, yet obviously way lower than what Rolls-Royce is asking for its life-sized cars.
Even so, Rolls-Royce customers like to spike up the Cullinan’s base sticker with options and they’ll usually pay as much as $390,000 for their luxo-barge. That’s a lot to shell out on options, since the entry-level Cullinan starts at around $330,000 (destination and gas-guzzler fees included). That said, we expect them to apply this behaviour on the scale model Cullinan, too.
