Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

The Cullinan weighs more than 2.6 tonnes. Yet thanks to its mighty V12 engine and slick eight-speed automatic gearbox, acceleration feels effortless; 0-62mph takes just 5.2sec, which is as fast as plenty of hot hatches can manage.

Ride comfort is generally very impressive, too, with the Cullinan appearing to float over bumps at higher speeds. However, while it continues to feel pretty supple in town, it can shimmy around a bit over patched-up surfaces.
