Without the hand, would you be able to tell that it is only a model?

Do you have a Rolls-Royce Cullinan but you feel sad because you can’t drive it too much because of coronavirus? Your office, living room or bedroom does not offer a view of your garage or driveway? Well, now you’re in luck, because Rolls-Royce has unveiled a 1: 8 scale model of the Cullinan to display in your home, and it looks so realistic it’s almost odd.

Seriously, without the gloved hands in these photos, it would be nearly impossible to tell that this is a scale model. In fact, it’s built with even more care than the real thing. Rolls-Royce says the model can take up to 450 hours to produce, which is double the time it takes to build a real Cullinan. The model consists of over 1000 components and is assembled by hand, and the materials used meet the same standards as in the real world.

Customers can either order their designs to match their Cullinan exactly, or create something new and unique. There are 40,000 “standard” colors to choose from, but you can, of course, create a custom paint finish if you wish. Each model is painted and polished by hand, and the exterior scratches are applied by hand with a brush, just like on real Rolls-Royce cars. The leather color, wood trim, stripes and piping of the seat are all customizable, and bespoke designs are also available for the interior. In a video posted by Rolls-Royce, one model has a world map printed on the dashboard.

The front and rear lights work, the coach doors and split tailgate open, and there are even illuminated sill plates and removable umbrellas in the doors. The hood opens to reveal an exact replica of the Cullinan’s twin-turbo V12 engine, although this miniature model does not work. Each model will be delivered in a display case nearly two feet long and the plexiglass cover is removable for a better view of the model.

Rolls-Royce says the model’s starting price is $ 17,100, which makes it more expensive than some of the cheapest new cars on the market. (However, it’s a lot cheaper than buying a real Cullinan, which starts at around $ 325,000.) But, being a Rolls-Royce, it will be very easy to send that price to skyrocket with custom colors. and custom options. Personally, I will wait the Black Badge version goes out to buy one of these models.
