This is what a Rolls-Royce could look like in the year 2100
LONDON - Rolls-Royce has unveiled their vision for what autonomous automotive luxury could look like a century from the present day in the form of the 103EX concept.
The 2100 A.D. vehicle features is a Phantom Extended Wheelbase that brings the super-streamlined car to 19 feet in length. Retro touches in the grill are contrasted by a massive darkened glass canopy, laser head and tail lights, automatic suicide doors and 28-inch wheels.
The canopy is designed to open in such a way that its future occupants are able to fully stand when entering the vehicle via a retractable red carpet covered step. Another past vs. future touch is seen on the inside in the form of large woodgrain panels and an OLED display.
From a practical standpoint (if anything is practical about the Rolls-Royce), the vehicle would be emissions-free, completely silent and entirely autonomous.
“With the Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100 we were mindful not to dwell on the past. We wanted to be as innovative as possible and at the same time transcend the design history of the marque,” said design director Giles Taylor.
