Rolls-Royce 103EX: Straight out of the Space Age

Rolls Royce has released plans for a luxury driverless car. It is called the 103EX and is nearly 20ft long, but you are going to have to wait a while to get your hands on one.

In fact, this driverless, space-age looking vehicle will not be available for up to 30 years. Rolls Royce has teased that it might be finally ready to hit the market in the 2040s!

Nevertheless, the brand stays true to its name with the 103EX and provides all of the luxury you might expect from a car of its quality - all-electric concept features, a silk love seat, a huge glass canopy and viewing panel and an artificial intelligence virtual assistant.

The 103EX Vision Next 100 Concept is a marker of BMW's centenary (who own Rolls-Royce). The BMW campaign commemorates the last 100 years and looks towards what the next 100 years hold, with an online interactive experience and a number of different concept cars.

Auto Express is quoted as saying that despite the radical body, it is 'clearly recognisable as a Rolls', although the curving, hunched roofline and tight, pinched rear end are 'probably the sportiest thing seen on a car carrying the Rolls-Royce badge in living memory'.

The car has 28 inch wheels completely encased with bodywork, the engine is in the boot and the luggage compartment just behind the front wheels. The cabin is entirely devoted to luxury and seats just two people.

Some of the extra glamourous touches include Crystal Water paintwork and door down-lighting that creates a virtual red carpet for its occupants to walk on.

SlashGear calls the 103EX 'astonishing' and 'sublimely crazy', while Top Gear says it suits Rolls's history perfectly – the silent, smooth electric powertrain emulates what the company has striven for with its engines in the past. 'Rolls owners were among the first to have self-driving cars – the autonomous system being the chauffer,' it adds.

The concept car was designed by Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce's director of design, who described the vehicle as 'an expression of our intrinsic understanding of the possibilities for a true luxury brand and the desires of its customers'.
