The Cullinan traversed all kinds of terrain, grated dirt roads, rocky washes and soft dunes.

For seven days she hardly faltered, thanks to her 6.75-liter V12 engine pushes out 563 horsepower and 672 pound-feet of torque.

The competition also includes time/speed/distance challenges where competitors must follow tulip notes at a designated speed and follow the directions, arriving "on time" at various timing controls.

We added a spare tire carrier to the back of the Cullinan so we could carry two full-size spares. Throughout the Rally we got three flat tires but only one was able to be repaired.
