Rolls-Royce Cullinan is now in Nigeria! Lovers of the luxury brand were treated to an exquisite preview of the ride in Lagos. Check out the glitz and glam!

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars had a private preview of its first SUV called Cullinan to a select audience at the premises of the Deputy British High Commissioner to Nigeria, in Lagos.

The guests consisting of high-profile individuals were obviously delighted to see the luxurious car which can be described as a 5-star hotel in vehicle form.

The unveiling of the Cullinan was a great opportunity for Rolls-Royce car collectors, enthusiasts, prospective clients and relevant stakeholders to have a sneak peak of the sleek Cullinan in a serene environment.

Staying true to the reason for the occasion, most of the invited guests made a stylish entrance into the premises in their various Rolls-Royce cars. The car park looked like a Rolls-Royce  dealership as the exotic cars lit up the environment, setting the mood right for the occasion. Suffice to say, there was a roll call of the Rolls-Royce cars in the arena. Visible on the list were the astonishing Black Badge Ghost and the enchanting new Phantom among others.


The exotic car in all its glory

Premium ushers led the VIPs to the cocktail held in the waiting room. Shortly after, they were ushered to the dining table adorned with fresh-looking flowers and some of the finest accessories.

The event facilitated by Coscharis Motors, holder of the Rolls-Royce exclusive franchise in Nigeria, was an avenue for Nigerians to have a feel of the iconic luxury synonymous with Rolls-Royce.

The visibly happy President of Coscharis Group, Dr. Cosmas Maduka, welcomed the guests and spoke on the essence of the event.

“We are excited with this gathering of credible Rolls-Royce enthusiasts gathered here today to view our new variants to further delight them as Nigeria remains one of our growing markets with great potentials,”


More guests at the event having fun

Back in 2018, the luxurious automaker had announced the debut of its new Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), Cullman. The Cullinan can be described as an automobile that depicts absolute freedom with enviable style. It raises the bar in automobile luxury, offering incredible design, technology and comfort of the highest standard.

Users of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan get to enjoy a relaxing luxury while on the road and off-road. The name takes after the Cullinan Diamond which is inarguably the highest quality of rough diamond discovered in history.

In the automaker’s lineup, the Cullinan is higher than the Ghost and lower than the Phantom. Production of the Cullinan started in the second half of the past year 2018, and customers who placed early orders started taking their deliveries in the first quarter of this year.


The high-profile guests enjoying the evening

According to reports, testing phase of the car started on January 2, 2016. It has been tested in different surfaces as well as on snow.

With this preview in Nigeria, the doors are open to usher in the Cullinan into the Nigerian market for the use of Rolls-Royce’s lovers. Expect to see the Cullinan in your neighborhood soon.
