The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is not a vehicle that needs to be upgraded or modified. It is, after all, the most luxurious SUV on the market and offers strong performance from its twin-turbocharged V12. Nevertheless, the experts at Novitec have chosen it as the subject for their most recent project and much to our surprise, the alterations made are quite nice.
Alterations start with what Novitec dubs the Spofec Overdose S widebody kit. This kit starts at the front end where the tuner has crafted a new bumper with revised LED daytime running lights and a black grille. The bodykit also includes a set of flared wheel arches at both the front and rear to increase the SUV’s width by 120 mm (4.7 inches). Novitec has also added slightly more overt side skirts.
The Overdose S widebody is rounded out with a new lip spoiler on the trunk lid, a more dramatic rear bumper, and a diffuser. A set of 24-inch alloy wheels co-developed with Vossen round out the new exterior looks and can be paired with aluminum spacers for an even wider look. The wheels of this example are painted black but 71 (!) other finishes are available.
In typical Novitec fashion, suspension modifications have also been made so the SUV sits 40 mm (1.6 inches) lower than stock. A plug-and-play control unit has then been developed and adds an extra 106 hp and 118 lb-ft (160 Nm) of torque to the 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V12, meaning the Cullinan is now good for 697 hp at 5,400 rpm and 782 lb-ft (1,060 Nm) of torque from as low as 1,800 rpm.
The added oomph helps the British cruiser hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds while the original 155 mph (250 km/h) electronic speed limiter has been retained. A stainless steel exhaust with adjustable butterfly valves is also included in the Overdose S but an exhaust without these valves is also offered.
