The 1:8 scale Rolls-Royce Cullinan replica takes up to 450 hours to assemble and will be one of the most expensive toys you’ll ever own

With a firm stance on "achieving perfection on every scale", Rolls-Royce is rolling out a 1:8 scale replica of their Cullinan, SUV. Believing that Covid-19 has curtailed car-enthusiasts from their daily driving pleasures, the authentic replica can be enjoyed by lovers of the brand in the comfort of their own home.

Each miniature model is crafted by hand and made according to a client’s specification. With over 1,000 individual components, the process of making the model can take up to 450 hours. Hand-painted and hand-polished, car-lovers can choose from a palette of 40,000 colours for their own unique design.

No ordinary replica, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV Miniature's functioning exterior LED lights can be operated by a Cullinan-branded remote control. While under the bonnet, the iconic 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine can be found. The interior of the model is designed and executed using the materials and finishes from the original car, so car-enthusiasts can expect nothing less than details such as headrest embroidery, wood finish, seat piping and stitching.

Though pricing is not listed, according to the Business Insider, the replica car can be purchased for a cool US$27,000.
