The new model has been teased since 2013 and was finally introduced in the showrooms late last year, the High Roller was the subject of pent-up demand and reached a critical mass, according to a report of News from the automobile.
Orders from Rolls-Royce are backed up until the end of July, largely thanks to Cullinan's orders. Half of Cullinan's buyers would be new to the Rolls brand. Rolls also says that Cullinan is more appealing to women, who represent a larger percentage of buyers for the SUV model. The model also attracts a younger client than the one traditionally observed in a Rolls.
The year 2018 was a record year for Rolls production, but Cullinan did not enter dealer showrooms until November. Part of this increase was noted after the launch of the Phantom in 2017, but Cullinan was a boon to the brand. It is fair to assume that Rolls is heading for another record year in 2019.
"Many customers who are already driving a Dawn or Phantom are buying a second Rolls-Royce," said Martin Fritsches, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Americas. News from the automobile.
Fritsches also said that it expects Cullinan to sell exceptionally well in Canada, where the brand currently has four dealers. In 2018, Rolls of Canada sold exactly 100 cars, and Fritsches expects this number to exceed 150 cars this year.
To paraphrase Randall "Memphis", the star character of Nicolas Cage, Raines of the amazing cinematic masterpiece "Gone in 60 Seconds" of the year 2000, "There are too many unhealthy sausages with too much money in the world".
There is a 0% chance that I buy this ridiculous fitter's roader compared to the other amazing Rolls available. Buy a Wraith and have fun, damn it.
