Rolls Royce Motor Cars has revealed its vision of the future of motoring. The Rolls Royce 103EX is the first of its Vision Next 100 vehicles and will said to provide effortless autonomous luxury travel. This vehicle will be highly personalisable inside, whatever your desire. Furthermore, with regard to the shape, size and silhouette of the car, "you will be able to craft your vision entirely from the wheels up," says the iconic engneering firm.

This is a driverless vehicle with a 'spirit of ecstasy' AI called Eleanor who will drive you, guide you and learn your travel preferences and so on. There are no familiar wheels, pedals or such control hardware in the cabin, just a large wide monitor screen. This minimalism of controls, as you will see in the embedded videos, enhances the experience of a "retreat from the world". The interior is a fully customisable luxurious, private, and warm space for relaxation during the journey. Buyers are expected to specify interiors crafted from bespoke, rare materials.

After enjoying your relaxing journey, arriving in the Rolls Royce 103EX will make a big statement. En-route it is expected to provide "beacon of luxury," among a sea of commoditised transport. Upon arrival the roof canopy and door opens up, and entrance lights shine "a personal red carpet" out of the car doors.

Best hope for exceptionally smooth roads with that ground clearance!

Oh, I also hope you only ever want to get out on the left too and don't mind the interior being drenched when it's raining when the door opens.

Looks nice though!
And you're fine providing you never want to turn the wheels left or right…

Torque vectoring is enough for most turns ;)
As I was reading this I thought ‘oh it’s just a concept' but then read on…. I cannot believe this is going on sale. Beauty is is the eye of the beholder and all that but that has to be one of the ugliest cars I have ever set eyes on…
