This audacious Cullinan is the overdose that Rolls-Royce didn’t dare to offer

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan seems to be a favorite among tuners lately. A few months back, Mansory gave it a twist, and now Novitec has laid its hands on one example.

The aftermarket company calls it the Cullinan Overdose. Befitting of its name, the company has given the Cullinan a lot of treatment on the outside. Novitec has tweaked the engine as well to offer a lot more power than it does in the standard form. With its widebody kit and lowered ride height, does it look as exquisite as the standard Cullinan?

The Cullinan Is Now Even Wider

Novitec has chosen the white shade for this Cullinan build. Up front, there aren’t a lot of changes. It retains the standard shape and nothing has been meddled around with. However, the company has slapped the world’s most-luxurious SUV with a body kit that makes the front end wider by 3.9 inches and the rear end by 4.7 inches. Thanks to this, the SUV loses out on the boxy side look and seems more curved and rounded. The added width comes from the flared wheel arches.

This Cullinan Overdose rides on Vossen-built 24-inch, dual nine-spoke silver wheels with the Rolls-Royce caps on them. They are wrapped around 295/30 low-profile tires. For an SUV of this demeanor, the wheels look way too simple and plain. The Overdose also sits 1.6 inches lower than the standard Rolls-Royce. The side skirts here further add to the ‘stuck-to-the-ground’ feeling. The rear wheel arches had to be done cleverly since the Cullinan features suicide doors and the rear doors open backward.

Novitec has installed a new exhaust system to this Overdose to bring more pizzazz out of the jacked-up engine. The rear bumper sits a tad bit lower to make the overall appearance look proportionate after equipping it with the wide body kit.

A ducktail spoiler along with the standard spoiler at the top round up the Cullinan’s rear. Surprisingly, there are no changes made to the cabin. To think of it, this is the most premium and luxurious SUV that you can get on the planet; so, there’s nothing much you can do to make it feel any more special or plush.

What Are The Changes Under The Hood?

The Cullinan comes with a 6.75-liter, twin-turbocharged V-12 engine under the hood. In the standard form, it develops 563 ponies and 627 pound-feet of torque.

Novitec has pumped up the power significantly. It receives a bump of 122 horses and 118 pound-feet of torque, bringing the power figures to 685 horses and 745 pound-feet of twist.

This lets the SUV sprint to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds. Shmee covered this SUV in his video and went on a drive to the Autobahn. The Cullinan touched speeds over 135 mph with utmost ease while the cabin remained absolutely silent.

What Has Novitec Added To Increase The Oomph?

The power boost comes via a SPOFEC N-Tronic, a processor-controlled device that will be connected to the original engine management with the delivered Plug & Play wiring harness. The exhaust system is upgraded with a Power Optimized system that also features flap regulation. You can open the flaps manually and the grunt changes noticeably. Novitec has also installed a suspension control module that allows the air suspension to travel. This is kind of a necessity since the SUV sits quite low and could scrape its bottom on humps and speed breakers.

Final Thoughts

This isn’t a limited-edition kit and Novitec hasn’t capped the production to a particular number. Since you can customize it as per your needs, there’s no price tag to the build as well. But, if the standard Cullinan isn’t enough for you, this beast should do the trick, especially because of the extra oomph under the hood.
