It’s almost impossible to be stressed inside the Cullinan, indeed, whether behind the wheel or in the cossetting rear armchairs – our test car comes in the “theatre” configuration of two enormous, enveloping back seats.

There’s an faintly absurd amount of unfolding addenda in the rear-seat console between the back seats – at least two examples of which allow access to refrigerated cubbyholes complete with champagne flutes and decanters.
