Rolls-Royce released images and simulation videos of its latest concept car the 103EX and I’m blubbering and blushing. Way better looking than those weird side-driving automated cars from Minority Report and maybe some inspiration from Tron?
Here’s the description from the Rolls-Royce site:
“Rolls-Royce 103EX is our first ever vision vehicle, and embodies just one of the endless possibilities that awaits. A personalised icon for the future, providing a sanctuary of calm in an ever-faster world. The pinnacle of effortless autonomous travel, gliding silently through the cities of tomorrow. This is our VISION NEXT 100.”
“Vision vehicle”. Classic. That’s for sure coming from the hot-shot executive who delivered the presentation. “It’s not a concept car… … … it’s a vi-” Yeah, we get it. You’re a visionary. You don’t play by the rules. All the other shit that Jon Hamm says in voice-overs on car commercials.
How much does the thought of driverless cars suck for drivers? Truck drivers, cabbies, Uber drivers, Minnie Driver. I assume she’s old-fashioned and hates change.
Concept cars are the ultimate tease. When are we ever going to see this? In our lifetime? Don’t f*ck with me. What are your lease options? If I give you my second born, are we talkin’?
Here’s a shot of the concept from an angle…
So much for anyone trying to slash your tires. Time to stock up on ex-girlfriends and mortal enemies.
Here’s one of the front.
That’s one grill I might slip the tongue.
Here’s a shot of the interior. Boom. Leg room on leg room. It’s like when Hightower learned how to drive and ripped the seat out of the car in Police Academy. Trust me.
And you can’t forget the TV. Forget Netflix and chill. Rolls-Royce and smoosh.
