If you think the Cullinan's £250,000 starting price is vast, just consider that it's only a jumping-off point. Many buyers will double that figure by the time they've selected all the options and bespoke features essential to them, from custom paint colours to a 'viewing suite' that emerges from the boot electrically and is the ideal place to watch polo matches from.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan dashboard

Take a pew in the Cullinan and you'll find its dashboard is a combination of restrained, simple symmetry and the utmost quality. The upper fascia is finished in leather inspired by high-end Italian luggage and handbags, while its air vents and clock represent the jewellery on show. A huge, horizontal swathe of wood flows into the central console, adding warmth to the cockpit-style fascia.

Equipment

Considering the demanding nature of buyers to whom the Cullinan will appeal, Rolls-Royce has been given access to the most advanced technology parent BMW Group offers. It's not about being showy, however – much of it lies hidden out of sight until called upon.

Four discreet cameras dotted around the Cullinan's exterior provided a 'helicopter' parking view, and even a setting where you can virtually 'walk around' the car's exterior while it's parked. Night vision can spot wildlife and pedestrians obscured by darkness, while there's also a head-up display and convenience-boosting features like active cruise control and wi-fi for passengers.

Options

While most SUVs come with a prescribed list of trim levels, options and packs you can tick against, specifying a Cullinan is a rather more personal affair. Just about every part of the interior can be altered to suit your unique taste, and the chances of two Cullinans ever being identical when they roll out of the brand's Goodwood factory are virtually nil.

Making the most of the car's practical demeanour, Rolls-Royce is even offering bespoke 'Recreation Modules' to make it easier for owners to enjoy their favourite hobbies. Each module is a commissioned container that perfectly houses the necessary equipment and paraphernalia, whether it be for snowboarding, photography, fly fishing, rock climbing or almost any other pursuit. The module is slotted into a motorised drawer in the boot and can be swapped for whatever activity is planned for the day.
