Rolls-Royce has unveiled their idea of the ultimate luxury vehicle of the next century with the Vision Next 100 concept car and we love it. It has been hailed as the first “purely visionary” concept in the brand’s 112-year history. The body work wraps almost completely around the wheels, making the car appear as if it’s floating a few inches from the ground. Its curved roofline and sloping rear end gives it a very sporty touch, yet still so obviously and beautifully identifiable as a Rolls-Royce.
The car comes with laser headlights, a darkened glass canopy and a larger Spirit of Ecstasy bonnet ornament made of handcrafted glass. The new “Crystal Water” color scheme on the lower half of the car appears more noticeable, and is said to lighten the design and give it a sense of movement, even when parked. On the inside, we can see the Macassar wood paneling, OLED screens, and a “floating” sofa that sits on a hand-woven ivory wool carpet.
In Rolls-Royce’s vision of the future, a human driver is replaced entirely by “Eleanor,” which is artificial intelligence that both gets you from A to B, and acts as a personal assistant.
