Like caviar and roe, model cars are not made equal. While some model cars are exquisite, some are beyond exquisite like the Rolls-Royce 1/8 Scale Replica Model Car Cullinan you see here.
Like the actual Cullinan, each Rolls-Royce 1/8 Scale Replica Model Car Cullinan is individually crafted by hand to the client’s specification and from over 1,000 individual components.
The entire build process, according to the British luxury marque, would take up to 450 hours, or over half of the time required to a build a full-sized Cullinan.
The miniature replica is hand-painted using the brand’s color-matched paint, followed by hand-polished to the automaker’s exacting specification. Even the coachline was applied by hand using a fine brush.
Also like the real drivable example, the color can be chosen from a palette of around 40,000 colors, or you can opt for a Bespoke finish. The interior finish can be customized too. Yes. Believe it.
That’s not all. This miniature Cullinan is also rocking a fully-functioning exterior lights which can be operated with a Cullinan-branded remote control.
It further boasts opening doors, trunk, and of course, hood that opens to reveal a detailed engine bay with a miniature replica of 6.75L V12 twin-turbo engine. Moreover, opening the coach doors will also reveal the illuminated tread plates.
The details that went to each miniature Cullinan have not been curtailed because of the size. In fact, for the size, it may feel like it has even more details than the actual ride.
Each Rolls-Royce 1/8 Scale Replica Model Car Cullinan will come with a display case that measures nearly a meter (3.3 feet) long, along with a gloss-black based mounted on a plinth.
In many ways, the Rolls-Royce 1/8 Scale Replica Model Car Cullinan is like its real counterpart and we suspect the price is proportionally the same. But we will never know because, price is listed as “Price on Request”.
POR has always been a scary term. Basically, it is a term that translates to “don’t ask unless you have an infinite amount of money.”
