Ncredible Twin-Turbo V12 SUV
When you live a life of refinement, it’s hard to own anything that is less than exceptional. Going door to door from multimillion-dollar estates to the most renowned events on the planet, the elite expect to be surrounded by luxury at all times. When you already own lavish properties, the next thing on the list is to have a fleet of the most extravagant vehicles to match your lifestyle. Actor/comedian/recording artist, Nick Cannon is one of these individuals and the latest edition to his collection is this Cullinan SUV.
The Come Up
Though Nick has risen to the limelight, he had humble beginnings like most of us. Years ago, he worked as a mechanic during the day to help fund bus fare to local venues where he would practice his standup comedy routines. The shop had an old VW Beetle that he would work on in his spare time, which would eventually become his first ride. Though he started at the bottom, he’s worked his way up. Along the way, he has accomplished many feats across various entertainment platforms to earn him a large payout, which he now uses to purchase some of the finer things in life.
Sharing Automotive Passion
In a pursuit to have a collection of custom high-end vehicles, Nick ran across Lonnie Walker at 310 Motoring in Los Angeles. This shop became the place for elite individuals to have their exotic vehicles personalized. Looking to do more together, Lonnie and Nick started a joint automotive boutique called Ncredible Motorsports. This is where Nick houses his collection and flips exotic vehicles to help fund his hobby.
When it comes to having all the latest and greatest vehicles, Nick is at the forefront. In 2019, Rolls-Royce introduced the Cullinan as their first SUV in their lineup and Nick had to have one. The inception of this particular vehicle was to give collectors the option of having a matching SUV to sit next to their other Rolls-Royce vehicles. At a starting price of $325,000, the Cullinan is the most expensive and luxurious production SUV on the market.
Performing Under Pressure
Taking a deeper look into this vehicle, it’s easy see why people like Nick feel the need to fork out a huge chunk of change for one of these exquisite vehicles. Under the hood is a 6.75L V12 engine that has twin turbochargers. With 563hp and 627tq, this 5,864 lb SUV can go from 0 to 60mph in a mere 4.5 seconds. Not only does it have the power you would expect for the price, it runs quiet so that all riders are not disturbed by the sound the engine nor let it remind everyone that it sucks down a gallon of gas every 12-miles.
Luxury at its’ Finest
Making for the ultimate in comfort is the plush interior, which has everything you could ask for in a vehicle and more. The majority of the inside is covered in high-grade leather and it’s accented with hand-carved wood trim. Rear passengers have it the best with motorized trays and infotainment screens. Getting in and out is done with ease as the powered doors close on their own with a push of a button.
Cruising in Comfort
One thing you can expect from a Rolls-Royce is the “Magic Carpet Ride.” Not only is it smooth but the AWD suspension lifts up when the off-road setting is selected. The Ncredible team took advantage of the factory air suspension and reprogrammed it to sit lower than original. This advanced suspension also has “The Flagbearer” system that uses sensors to scan the road ahead and proactively adjust the suspension for superior ride quality.
Nostalgia Meets Modernism
As you probably noticed, this SUV has similar lines to other Rolls-Royce models along with the typical Parthenon grille and Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. Innovations like the laser equipped headlights really make the Cullinan a vehicle of the future. The crew at Ncredible did their part to make it even better with color match door sills and lower front grilles. Nick also has a line of Savini wheels, and he replaced the factory 22’s with 24-inch SV61D forged wheels in brushed gunmetal finish. Keeping up the high-quality theme, style and smooth ride are a set of 305/35R24-sized Nitto NT420S tires. With a beautiful sidewall, a tread design that is optimized for wet and dry performance, and provides a quieter, more comfortable ride, these tires are the perfect complement to the rest of this luxury cruiser.
Setting New Standards
Rolls-Royce did an awesome job on this new SUV and the Ncredible team upped the game with the new additions. The subtle changes really go a long way to make this Cullinan stand out from the others. When you live a unique lifestyle like Nick, it takes an exceptional vehicle like this to fully enjoy it all.
