At this point, every car maker – whether they make high performance vehicles or modest commuter cars – is obliged to roll out some concept of what their self-driving automobiles will look like. So while it may be somewhat predictable that the luxury marquee Rolls-Royce has unveiled Rolls-Royce 103EX, the design and build of this thing is anything but.
Rolled out in London as a part of the BMW Centenary (RR’s parent company), this futuristic vehicle has already caught the imaginations of car lovers and designers the world across. Like with all concepts, this car features a lot of what may feel like exaggerations. The classic big body look of the car has been taken to a new level, now measuring in at 20 feet long and five feet tall, and featuring two part gull-wing and suicide doors. The interior of this futuristic star ship features what is essentially a plush sofa, Macassar wood details, hand twisted silk carpet, and a wrap-around OLED display. A steering wheel and instrument panel are not included in this model. Instead, occupants will be transported by a personification of the Spirit of Ecstasy figurehead, an AI that will remember everything from your favorite restaurant to your preferred artist. To top it all off, the Rolls-Royce 103EX will be a zero-emission electric vehicle. Sometimes the future can seem nothing more than a series of problems to be solved and obstacles to be navigated, but thanks to the visionaries at Rolls-Royce, we’ll at least be doing all of that in style.
