Rolls-Royce has always been known as one of the most luxurious, elegant, and altogether exceptional car companies on Earth. So, it only makes sense that Rolls-Royce is the company to make one of the most outrageously opulent cars I’ve ever seen: The Vision Next 100.
The Vision is a nearly 20-foot-long, five-foot-tall, autonomous coupe that looks as much like a luxury yacht as it does a car. Its purpose it to showcase the company’s goals for the next 100 years. Here’s what you can expect:
The inside of the Vision Next 100 is arranged like a lounge, with a clamshell canopy that encloses it with the silence of a prohibition-era bank bunker. And every lounge needs a small couch. This small one is wrapped in silk and backlit so it looks as though it floats in its place. The rest of the cabin is surrounded by Macassar wood and cosseted with a deep-pile ivory wool carpet.
The floating headlamps and blade-edged verticality of the fenders are classic Rolls: imposing and visually heavy, without necessarily being classically beautiful. The square, flat grille is, to my eyes, much less successfully integrated.
The owner will be “encircled by the most modern handcrafted fine-line Macassar wood panelling” as they gaze at a “generous” high-definition television screen.
