The British automaker is now offering a 1:8 scale replica of its first ever SUV, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The smaller Cullinan is so detailed, you’ll need to have a pair of human hands next to it to know it’s not full sized. The miniature scale Cullinan measures 26 inches long, 10 inches wide and 9 inches tall, and it includes a nearly 40-inch long display case.
According to Rolls-Royce, the mini Cullinan features over 1,000 individual scale parts. The most exciting part is that these aren’t just there for decoration, each component actually works. The model is paired with a remote that controls its headlight and taillights. Your probably won’t be surprised to hear that the scale model SUV can be fully personalized just like a Rolls-Royce that you would order from the factory. This means you can match your actual Cullinan (if you have one) to the scale replica.
“This scale replica brings a new dimension to Cullinan’s Effortless, Everywhere philosophy,” CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said. “It demonstrates, and reminds us as a company, that inspiring greatness applies at every scale. It is not just about the big things: We seek and achieve greatness in everything we do, down to the smallest item and minutest detail.”
Each Cullinan replica takes 450 hours to produce, about half the time that goes into making its full-sized sibling. The model Cullinan starts at $17,000, which may seem expensive for a model car, but it’s actually at the lower end of the price range for replicas with this sort of detail.
