Rolls-Royce builds a car that weighs 2.6 tonnes and measures 5.3m long called the Cullinan, which it calls a ‘high-sided vehicle’, but the rest of us simply call an ‘SUV’. A tuner called Wald International working out of Osaka, Japan has revealed its own set of modifications for this SUV, and has labelled it the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Bison Edition.
Chief among the changes are touches of chrome here and there, as well as new aero parts like the front lip, sidesteps, rear spoiler and a new rear diffuser. The company has revealed that the Black Bison sits lower on its self-levelling suspension than the standard Cullinan does. Perhaps you should label it the ‘slightly-lower-sided-vehicle’.
There are new 24in forged wheels, alongside the plethora of aero parts, and because Wald International has not detailed any specific power figures, we can safely assume the Cullinan’s standard twin-turbo 6.75-litre remains. This engine - comprised of twelve cylinders fashioned in a ‘V’ shape - produces 570hp and 850Nm of torque.
It is not the first modified version of Rolls-Royce’s 2.6-tonne, 5.3m-long SUV called the Cullinan, and nor, we suspect, will it be the last.
