Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge Coming With More Power Staff
by Staff

If 563 hp isn’t enough power and $325,000 isn’t expensive enough, Rolls-Royce is planning something special for you.

According to a new filing by the California Air Resources Board, uncovered by staff, the brand is about to debut a Black Badge version of its Cullinan ultra-luxury SUV.

The current Cullinan is powered by a 6.75-liter V12 engine making 563-hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. Black Badge editions of other Rolls-Royce models like the Wraith sport torque increases of around 50 lb-ft, so we’d expect to see that here as well.

UPDATE: Australian’s Road Vehicle Certification System has certified the 2020 Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge, with horsepower and torque figures. This high-performance version of the ultra-luxury SUV will make 591 hp at 5000 rpm, 664 lb-ft of torque.

Wraith Black Badge models also see more responsive steering and modified suspension components for a more engaging ride.

Other highlights would include a black Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, darker chrome accents and carbon fiber wheels.

Expect the Cullinan Black Badge to retail for at least $50,000 more than the standard Rolls SUV, putting it at roughly $375,000 – although if you know anything about the Rolls-Royce brand you know that almost every single model comes so customized that a Black Badge owner would be lucky to walk away for less than $500,000.
