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.
