At a height of 62 miles above ground level, our atmosphere abruptly ends and space begins. The Kármán Line, as it is known, is the observable boundary between our clear blue sky and the infinite darkness of space. This is not idle boasting, since the 2023 Cullinan Blue Shadow, Rolls-Royce's newest creation, is themed after this same line.
The automaker will only produce a small batch of 62 of these exquisite models. In a groundbreaking move, the brand has incorporated a unique design element into the leather seats of the Cullinan Blue Shadow by utilizing two different sizes of perforation for the very first time. These elements serve as the foundation of the design, embodying the essence of our planet.
The Cullinan Blue Shadow flaunts a brand-new Stardust Blue paint job on the outside. It looks great with the thermal tile-inspired satin-finished grille and bumper accents. Furthermore, the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament is 3D printed from titanium and given an iridescent sheen with a coat of blue lacquer.
As you step inside, your eyes will be drawn to the Kármán Line gracefully curving across the dashboard and extending onto the door panels. This masterpiece boasts a stunning array of five distinct hues of blue, each carefully applied with six layers of expertly crafted paint. The addition of blue and clear glass particles to the clear-coat layer creates a mesmerizing depth and luster that elevates the trim to a whole new level of specialness.
The Edge of Space headliner, located at the very top of the car, has 1,183 fiber optic lights in the shape of stars and an embroidered moon. It has 250,000 stitches and uses five distinct thread colors. Two full days are required to finish it. The cost of the Cullinan Blue Shadow remains a mystery, as the luxurious SUV is only accessible through their Private Office.
