Chief executive officer of Rolls-Royce, Torsten Muller-Otvos
The hotly anticipated Cullinan is finally here, so we've caught up with the boss of the brand, Torsten Müller-Otvos, to gauge what impact it's likely to have on his company.
Just how important to Rolls-Royce’s future is the launch of Cullinan?
It’s enormously important. Cullinan redefines the parameters of super-luxury travel. Our customers have been waiting a long time for a motor car that offers uncompromised luxury wherever the owner dares to venture. Cullinan is that car.
Do you think Cullinan’s arrival will change the Rolls-Royce brand?
Well, Cullinan is certainly a very big departure for us. We’re moving into the very top echelon of a highly competitive and thickly populated sector, so we will definitely meet customers we’ve not known before. But the big response to our latest cars shows that our brand values are clear and well understood.
