Drake’s Gothic-themed Rolls-Royce Cullinan is very unique
Drake was never really a proponent of preserving money. The Canadian Rapper and Songwriter Said It On His Second Album’s Track “Crew Love” Take care. His penchant for customizing luxury vehicles is just one way the Grammy Award winner spends all those C-notes. Example: a bespoke Rolls-Royce Cullinan designed in collaboration with fashion brand Chrome Hearts.
According to GQ, the bespoke Rolls-Royce SUV took a year to customize. By partnering with Chrome Hearts, Drake was striving to create a one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce and accomplished just that. The luxury line, established in 1988 and owned by Richard and Laurie Lynn Stark, is known for its meticulous attention to detail and high-end design work.
While most of the custom work took place inside, Chrome Hearts replaced the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament with a trio of crosses and wheels fitted with a huge Chrome Hearts logo, complete with the words “F *”. * k You “engraved in Gothic script on the lip. The 24-inch custom wheels are packaged in Pirelli Scorpion Zeros 285/40 / ZR23. Upon closer inspection you will notice the carbon fiber hood, side skirts, rear diffuser, front bumper splitter, air dams and C-pillar trim. Other modifications to the exterior include air vents and cladding on the fenders, and a lower chrome grille.
If you are a fan of Hotline Bling singer, then you’ve probably caught a glimpse of the gothic-themed interior in the “What’s Next” clip, which shows Drake in the backseat punching his heart out.
Inside, the Chrome Hearts Cullinan is covered in quilted black leather (from handcrafted raw materials), including the dashboard, center console, door panels, seats and floor – but unlike the pattern. Diamond-quilted quilting usual in luxury car interiors, this black-on-black Rolls-Royce features extravagantly embroidered Gothic crosses, inlaid silver accents and fleur-de-lis designs. No stone was left behind; everything from climate ventilation knobs to brake and accelerator pedals to floor mats has been updated. The Rolls-Royce starlight headliner, however, has been kept intact in its original form.
Oh, and this Rolls gets a unique leather keyring with a chain that attaches to the keyring.
Richly decorated Rolls-Royce Cullinan part of launch of Drake’s upcoming album Lover Boy certified. It will be on display at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Miami until May 15, 2021. In addition to the Rolls-Royce Project, Chrome Hearts and Drake have also created a lifestyle collection of automotive clothing and accessories that complements the Custom Cullinan.
