This Rolls-Royce Black Badge Cullinan takes inspiration from Pikes Peak and motor racing

The Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective has always been about creating cars that reflect the patron’s personality. One excellent example is the latest Black Badge Cullinan commissioned by Ben and Christine Sloss that takes inspiration from racing at Pikes Peak.

The US-based couple are known to be avid weekend racers who particularly love events like the famous Pikes Peak Hill Climb in Colorado. This is seen in their Cullinan’s Pikes Peak Blue color that is matched by a Forge Yellow coachline, wheel centers, and brake calipers. These colors likewise match those of their own race cars’ livery, as well as the flag of the northern Italian province of Modena—a well known place where motorsport is celebrated. With a passion.

The performance-oriented vibe continues to the SUV’s Spirit of Ecstasy that is milled from a single piece of carbon fiber. This is complemented by the silver-on-black RR badge, blacked out window surrounds, and the two-tone Black Badge wheels.

Opening the front doors reveal specially designed Black Badge treadplates that bear the owner’s name—Benjamin on the diver’s side and Christine on the passenger’s side. Each of these plates have undergone a Physical Vapor Deposition coating process emphasizing the attention to detail that this ride, as with any Rolls-Royce, possesses.

Once inside, one will be greeted by the swathes of Navy Blue leather complemented by Forge Yellow accents on various parts of the cabin. This is matched by touches like Mrs. Sloss’ personal logo—a stylish stileto done in embroidered leather. Apart from this, there is also a Bespoke Technical Clock that features a Navy Blue Anodized brushed stainless steel surround with Forge Yellow accents and dials.

Just like the couple’s Black Badge Dawn, which was commissioned back in 2018, the Black Badge Cullinan inspired by Pikes Peak once again shows their passion for motor racing and adventure. All this reflects the spirit of Bespoke.
