The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is undeniably one of the most luxurious sports utility vehicle (SUV) the world has ever seen, but its 1:8 scale model also holds its own record for being the most expensive toy car that money can buy. However, with some models that could reach as much as $40,000, this toy is not meant for playing. It is even more expensive than a standard brand new working vehicle that you can drive.
Like all vehicles made by the British luxury automobile brand, all models are very different. Every piece of the Cullinan is fully customizable. You can have a bespoke one made specifically according to your demand. You can even choose where the driver’s seat will get installed or customize the seat belt’s color.
Toy vehicle collectors and scale model enthusiasts can consider the Rolls-Royce Cullinan miniature model as the most intricate model car ever made. Each model is composed of at least a thousand handmade parts, which is astonishing, especially since you can easily display the scale model on your shelf.
Each scale model usually takes at least 450 hours to create. It is almost half as much time needed to create the real version of the luxury vehicle. It comes with fully working lights, a meticulous replica of the engine, working doors, and a comprehensive luxury interior. You may also choose your own special scale model color from the 40,000 color options offered by Rolls-Royce. You can even ask the car manufacturer to send an unpainted one and have it painted by yourself using their special paints.
The scale model is sold with a display case that is approximately three-feet long. It comes with a gloss black-color base that you can use to position the car properly. If you want to display the scale model’s interior properly, you may choose to take off the Perspex window to close and open the doors. You may also open the toy car’s luggage compartment or display the highly detailed engine bay, which features the Cullinan’s signature 6.76-liter V-12 engine. You can even turn the exterior lights on and off across the room, all thanks to the special remote control made specifically by Rolls-Royce for the Cullinan scale model.
If you look inside, you will discover small but exceptionally well-made details that are almost as sophisticated as those featured in the real Cullinan SUV. It also comes with the vehicle’s one-of-a-kind lighted tread plates, embellished headrests, stitched seat piping, and posh wood accents. One of the models even came with a world map printed on the miniature car’s dashboard in one of the luxury carmakers’ promotional videos.
Rolls-Royce released the 1:8 scale replica of the highly elusive Cullinan to let the wealthy car enthusiasts enjoy the beauty of the vehicle despite the limited opportunity for driving outside due to the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have unlimited savings at the bank and want to own one of these ultra-expensive toys, you can head over to the carmaker’s website to start customizing your very own Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
