Luxury car brand Rolls-Royce has designed its first ever concept car called the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100, billed as a vision for a future of driverless luxury vehicles.
The unusual concept car includes a roof that glides open with a hinged design based on a clamshell. This would allow riders to step into the interior without having to bend over. The roof and door would then close automatically.
Inside, the car has no driving area. Instead, the interior resembles a lounge, with wooden panelling, a deep-pile carpet and a wool-and-silk-upholstered sofa facing a full-width OLED screen that functions as an entertainment and work station.
All of the features could be customised for each owner, using interactive design tools that would allow them to give their input before the car is built.
Rolls-Royce imagines the car would be powered by a zero-emission drivetrain and use “advanced suspension” to create the sensation of the car skimming the surface of the road like a “magic carpet”.
