Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV's 'Viewing Suite' lets you take it all in
It's just a set of chairs built into the cargo area, but I'm surprised nobody's done this before.

After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.
When you've got the money to afford a
, you can make your problems somebody else's and just sit back, relax and enjoy the view -- and Rolls-Royce added a feature to its new SUV to help you do precisely that.
Rolls-Royce will introduce a new Viewing Suite option to its Cullinan SUV. Courtesy of Rolls-Royce's exclusive Bespoke department, the Viewing Suite is a set of rear-facing leather chairs that deploy from the cargo area with the push of a button.
Owners can use these seats to enjoy the view wherever the Cullinan is parked. Rolls-Royce imagines it hanging out on the side of some mountain, or perhaps near the shores of Lake Como -- to be honest, if I had this car, that's precisely where I'd be, too. That said, it would be equally excellent to have these chairs during a Rose Bowl tailgate. You're never too tipsy to enjoy high-quality leather.
The automaker didn't say how much this option would cost, but suffice it to say, mechanical craftsmanship of this caliber is all but guaranteed to come with a high price tag. Hell, it's not like the Cullinan is going to be a bargain, either -- the price could very well eclipse the Phantom VIII's mid-$400,000 window sticker. But if you want the best omelets you've ever eaten, you'll have to crack a few golden eggs.
