Not only does the DMC Cullinan “Emperor” receive a raft of exterior upgrades and carbon fibre trim, but the V12 under the lengthy bonnet now churns out 459 kW which can propel the deluxe SUV forward with a dash more of sportiness.
The DMC Cullinan, or “Emperor” as it is called by the German tuning company who is responsible for the upgrade still retains its commodious interior luxuries as the name implies. The widebody kit being advertised on the DMC website includes clear coated carbon fibre components that can be found on each facade of the stately British SUV, the first from the opulent marque.
This includes widened carbon fibre wheel arches, a new bonnet finished in carbon fibre while the rear is equipped with two carbon fibre spoilers, one above and one below the rear window. The work done pushes the model 40 mm further out on each side, with the corners being home to a set of 24-inch multi-spoke wheels specially designed for DMC by PUR Wheels in Canada. These are manufactured from special aluminium alloys which reduce weight but provide improved strength for higher speeds and heavier loads.
To finish off the exterior, the DMC Cullinan is painted with a Cherry Red hue which matches seats and trim of the interior. Up top remains the starlight headliner which has become synonymous with the sumptuous automaker. DMC branding can be found on the seats and mats but for the most part, the interior remains the same, just with a lot more red that can be deemed normal.
For those very few opting to use their Cullinan as an SUV and not an ornamental boasting piece, the Lifted Rolls-Royce Cullinan from Delta4x4 exists.
A new engine management system and upgraded exhaust mean that the V12 engine now pushes out 459 kW and 955 N.m which is a significant improvement from 426 kW and 850 N.m from before. The DMC Cullinan “Emperor” can thus hit 100 km/h from standstill in 4,9 seconds before it tops out at 282 km/h – not bad for a 2,6 ton luxury barge!
