Rolls-Royce's 103EX driverless Concept Car






At an event at London's Roundhouse on June 16, British automaker Rolls-Royce presented its first ever driverless car of the future: the "Vision Next 100". Codenamed the 103EX, the autonomous concept vehicle is aimed at "the most discerning and powerful patrons in the world".

"The grand arrival of the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 boldly points to a bright future for our marque where our patrons' individual demands for complete and authentic personalization will be met through an exquisite fusion of technology, design and hallmark Rolls-Royce craftsmanship," said CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös at the concept's launch.

The Vision Next 100 is the lastest addition to owners BMW's Vision Next 100 program and part of the parent company's centenary celebrations.

The futuristic styled supercar is 19.4 feet long, based around a lightweight carbon fibre structure, powered by a zero emissions drivetrain and controlled by Eleanor, the owner's virtual assistant and chauffeur. The car features a spacious interior, no steering wheel and a silk couch. A luggage compartment is positioned just aft of the front wheels.
