Drake Shows Off His New Gothic Rolls Royce Cullinan
Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, producer, and entrepreneur Drake is quite the car guy. His enviable car collection includes a Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir Edition, a Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible, a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, a Brabus 850, a Rolls-Royce Wraith, a Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman, a Ferrari LaFerrari, a McLaren 675LT, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Laudaulet, and a Mansory Rolls-Royce Phantom.
The newest addition to the fleet is a gothic-themed Rolls-Royce Cullinan and like all his other cars, it has been modified to stand out from the crowd. The Cullinan has been created in partnership with Chrome Hearts, a luxury brand that’s known for its gothic aesthetic. The outside has been customized with a unique lower front grille, black gothic crosses in place of the standard Spirit of Ecstasy, and a set of wheels featuring the Chrome Hearts logo.
The interior is far more unique with nearly all of the interior surfaces re-trimmed in bespoke black leather with complex embroidery and patterns. While it remains to be an acquired taste, the craftsmanship is claimed to be of such high quality that it will be displayed in Miami’s Institute of Contemporary Art Museum until May 15th.
“He wanted things to be heirlooms and have them be coveted,” Chrome Hearts co-owner Laurie Lynn Stark told Complex. “He was very specific about having things that have longevity. Like, in 10 years, if someone says, ‘Oh, remember they did that Drake project? What were those few pieces that were made? How do you have one? There’s only a limited amount which makes it prestigious to own.”
