Year 2040 ... Your Digital Future in 2040 will become with driverless and electric concept car Rolls-Royce that really seems as a land-yacht!
16 of June 2016 in London, the company Rolls-Royce held a presentation of the concept Vision Next 100 codenamed 103EX.
This two-seated luxury car was missing two things worth noting. Firstly, there is no steering wheel, but you won't need Jeeves to drive you anyway. That will be handled by Eleanor, an artificial-intelligence program can both drive and function as a fully interactive personal assistant. Secondly, Rolls-Royce doesn't actually have any commercial power source in mind for the car yet (MarketWatch, 2016).
“With the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 we were mindful not to dwell on the past,” said Rolls Royce Director of Design Giles Taylor. “We wanted to be as innovative as possible and at the same time transcend the design history of the marque.”
“Each Rolls-Royce will be designed less like a car, and more like an individual sculpture made from one seamless surface,” the company said. “This is a presence that proudly announces its arrival, and lights your entrance with a personal red carpet.”
“Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it.”
Sir Henry Royce
