What Crisis Is In Zimbabwe When A Rolls Royce Cullinan SUV Lands In Harare?
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is the biggest, heaviest, most expensive, most luxurious, most imposing, most exquisitely finished, most extravagant, most conspicuous and the most intimidating SUV in the world… and the vehicle is already being seen on the road of Harare.
This is not a car that comes cheap, and easy, considering that it’s got a v-12 engine and with 6,75 litre capacity.
Its makers claim it is the world’s most comfortable, smoothest riding and quietest SUV. It should be neither shaken, nor stirred, even when the road disappears, as is bound to happen in most places around Zimbabwe.
Carmagazine says: “Given Rolls-Royce’s reputation for refinement, ride comfort and all-round cossetting, you wouldn’t bet against it. Big air springs, self-levelling, adjustable ride height and proactive suspension featuring a camera that scans the road (or jungle) ahead, all do their bit.”
The outside may not be beautiful. But the inside is. According to carmagazine, the cabin is typically and exquisitely Rolls-Royce, a step ahead of any Bentayga, and two steps ahead of any Range Rover or Cayenne, all beautifully trimmed in the finest leathers and woods.
“It’s also the world’s most spacious SUV. There’s more rear seat leg space than your typical loungeroom.”
It comes powered a twin-turbo 6.75-litre V12 engine, boasting mountains of torque. Unsurprisingly it’s no lightweight: weighing in hefty 2.7 tonnes.
So what did the Harare fella cough up to land this beast on our roads? It costs an eye-popping US$350,000, and that’s before personalisation, and of course before the tax collector Zimra demands their share of the duty.
Cash crisis? Fuel crisis? Everything is relative, and it seems there is NO crisis at all in Zimbabwe. As for who the owner of this road monster is, why should we really care?— ZOOMZimbabwe
