YouTuber ‘Shmee150’ shared a first look at the Mansory Coastline and Rolls-Royce collaboration, which converted a Cullinan into a luxury SUV that takes comfort and power to a new level.

The extremely exclusive vehicle has a limited run of only eight cars total. Typically, the RR Cullinan will go for over $300,000 (about €265,000), but Mansory upped the ante by making the lavish vehicle truly remarkable with their ‘Coachline’ upgrade package.

Both the elegant comfort and subtle power of the Cullinan was injected with nautical-themed improvements that dive deeper into the specs, rather than just the vibrant makeover seen on the interior’s design.

The Cullinan is a luxurious Rolls-Royce SUV, but Mansory gave it a sporty upgrade.

Shmee150 was absolutely floored while giving the SUV a brief test drive. Even though the custom kit gives the car 40 horsepower (hp) more than the baseline model, the YouTuber had a pristine experience in his brief test run.

“It feels a bit like being in a peaceful boat out on a still lake,” he said. “Gently sailing through and, of course, that is the idea of the ‘Coastline.’ And then you put your foot down…”

That’s when Shmee encouraged the Mansory Coastline Cullinan to show off some of the power that lets the SUV go from 0-100km (0-60 miles per hour) in five seconds.

The loud V12 engine packs 610hp that can take the vehicle to a top speed of 280 kilometers per hour (about 174 miles per hour).

But like any Rolls-Royce, the experience of just sitting in the car needs to captivate the driver just as much as revving the engine down the motorway.

It’s the details laced throughout the Mansory conversion that betray its outwardly bold appearance.

The details in the Mansory Coastline Rolls-Royce Cullinan go as far as putting LEDs into the upholstery.

The body is painted in Ocean Blue and Secret Silver details, but it has a bright turquoise interior. It’s almost like looking at a calm ocean surface in the morning haze, but poking your head underwater reveals the bright and lively environment that lies beneath sea level.

Mansory had fun with that theme, as seen in the waves throughout the interior (even etched in the carbon fiber detailing), as well as the illuminated headliner upholstery that gives it a “coastal type illumination.”

The Mansory Coastline Rolls-Royce Cullinan is an ode to the coasts which thoroughly impressed Shmee150 with its masterclass design, incredible power, and luxurious ride.

Supercar Blondie mindblown by “insane” amphibious truck

As one of YouTube’s leading car content creators, Supercar Blondie gets to experience some of the craziest vehicles on the planet. Sometimes, a vehicle is just too much for her, though; as was the case with this incredible Russian Amphibious 8×8 truck.

With everything going on in the world at the moment, doomsday preppers are in full-on panic mode. Thankfully, YouTuber Supercar Blondie has found them the perfect go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle.

Dubbed the Avtoros ‘Shaman’ this gigantic truck is completely amphibious, so you can drive it on land or in water, and is custom-built by a team of Russian engineers. All eight wheels are driven, and can be controlled via the incredibly complex instrument panel in the cabin.

The Shaman has the capacity to carry up to eight people, and features a central driving position akin to that of the McLaren F1. Performance doesn’t quite match the aforementioned supercar though, being powered by a 4-cylinder diesel engine.

Blondie is quick to use her trademark “that’s crazy” statement, but in this case, it was definitely worthy of the phrase. The Shaman is unlike anything ever seen before on her channel, and she is clearly smitten with it.

Despite its exaggerated appearance making it look like it came straight from a Fast & Furious movie, she said the Shaman was “very normal” to drive.

One of the unique abilities of the Shaman is its ability to ‘crab’ steer, and traverse surfaces sideways. SB tried out this feature first with her whole team in the truck, and it seemed to go down a storm. With plenty of laughter, the team all agreed that it was truly “crazy.”

Despite prices starting at $200,000 for a basic Shaman, given its incredible abilities, its “money well spent” according to Blondie. The team clearly enjoyed their time in the truck, with Supercar Kate (Blondie’s sister) asking “shall we combine all our salaries and get one?”

On the water, the Shaman floats thanks to its giant tires acting as a buoyancy aid. They can then propel the truck by ‘driving’ in the water. Alternatively, it can be fitted with an outboard propeller unit, as demonstrated in the video.

Blondie clearly enjoyed her time behind the wheel of this behemoth. However, with only a handful in existence, it’s unlikely we’ll see a Shaman 8×8 join the channel any time soon.
