As envisioned by the engineers, Vision Next 100 is a fully autonomous car. The technical characteristics of the concept are not disclosed. However, in the future the company plans to take an axe to the current 12-cylinder engine. The press service of the Rolls-Royce said that in the years ahead the chassis of each vehicle will be collected manually from the «ultramodern materials» and equipped with a powertrain with zero emissions.

The vehicle’s interior is decorated with handmade panels made of ebony. The prototype is not equipped with the steering wheel and the cockpit. All the necessary information about the trips and meetings is shown on the wide OLED-display.
