KUALA LUMPUR: After making its global debut in May last year, Rolls-Royce’s first sport utility vehicle (SUV) – the Cullinan – has finally arrived on the Malaysian shores.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the BMW Group, launched the SUV here today, with a starting price of RM1.8 million per unit, depending on customer specification.

Named after the largest diamond ever discovered, the luxury four-wheel drive SUV is offered as a four and five-seater version, powered by a new 6.75-litre twin turbo V12 Rolls-Royce engine with eight speed transmission.
