Rolls Royce Cullinan Gets an Armoured Upgrade

The Rolls Royce Cullinan is a beautiful vehicle, just like any other marque the British luxury automaker has produced over the years. And if you think this model could not get any more desirable, Klassen’s armoured makeover is here to prove you wrong.

The Rolls Royce Cullinan by Klassen is a fully-armoured vehicle that comes complete with a full suite of security features to keep passengers safe. According to the tuner, the Cullinan riff offers a ballistic protection level of CEN 1063 BR6.

In other words, the hard-wearing ride has been outfitted with armour strong enough to shield against deadly weapons. The reinforced ceiling and floor can withstand the full force of two DM51 hand-grenades exploding simultaneously while the multi-layer bulletproof glass holds up against fire from a high-powered rifle. The special overlap system, meanwhile, ensures bullets are unable to penetrate the door seals.

The ballistic protection also extends to the battery and electronic control module and continues with reinforced door hinges, upgraded suspension and run-flat tires. Despite all of this, the elegant exterior remains true to the original, with a Spirit of Ecstasy sitting proudly atop the British marque’s trademark Parthenon-shaped grille.

Under the hood, the armoured brute retains the original’s 6.7-litre V-12 that’s good for 563 hp. This is enough to propel the five-seater from zero to 60 mph in just 5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph – more than enough time to make a quick escape should you find yourself in danger.

The interior maintains its sheer luxurious look, with the Cullinan’s Starlight headliner alongside its 1,344 individual twinkling fibre optic ends remaining untouched. However, Klassen is offering customers the chance to further customize the upscale cabin with an array of high-end materials.

With an upgrade like this, this vehicle is sure to cost a pretty penny. A regular Rolls Royce Cullinan starts at roughly half a million. Klassen’s armoured version is almost double that and priced at around $962,000 (€833,000 including taxes). Not a bad deal if you also consider that it takes up to three months of painstaking work to complete.
