The Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge is the most expensive SUV you can buy in India. Yes! India's richest family, the Ambanis have just added one to their garage.
The Ambani family fall among the richest in the world and the richest in India. And it looks like the family is upgrading its garage for 2021, first with three new Mercedes G63 AMG SUVs, and now they have added a Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge. This is the third Cullinan to be added to their garage.
The video has been uploaded by CS 12 Vlogs on YouTube, in which we can see the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge in the driveway of the Ambani residence, Antilia. Though the video is not very clear as it was shot from across the road, the black chrome grille is a feature reserved for the Black Badge editions. Prices for the Cullinan Black Badge start from Rs 8.2 crores without any customizations, which is around Rs 1.25 crore more expensive than the standard Cullinan and comfortably makes it the priciest SUV in India. The Rolls-Royce Black Badge editions replace all the chrome with black chrome including the Spirit of Ecstasy and get forged alloy wheels with red brake callipers.
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge gets an uprated version of the standard model’s 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged petrol engine. Maximum power and torque figures are up by 29 PS/50 Nm and totals at 600 PS/900 Nm.
Reportedly this makes the Cullinan Black Badge the fifth Rolls-Royce to be added to the garage. Other than the two Cullinans, they also own the Phantom VIII Extended Wheelbase which is the most expensive model that the automaker currently makes and the Phantom Drophead Coupe, which is one of the most luxurious GTs around.
Other notable vehicles include three Bentley Bentaygas, Maserati Levante, BMW i8, McLaren 570 S Spider, Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster, Ferrari 488 GTB, Ferrari Portofino and Aston Martin DB11. The family also owns a Tesla Model S 100D which isn’t on sale in India currently, though that may change soon as Tesla has formally entered the Indian market,
