by staff writer JP

The chassis of the future, created from the most advanced materials and powered by a zero emissions powertrain will underpin this vision

In 2016, Rolls-Royce rewrote the rulebook for the future of luxury mobility by presenting the VISION NEXT 100. Codenamed the 103EX, it was a radical vision of an autonomous connected car, each completely bespoke to the individual customer.

Thanks to its unrivalled engineering capabilities, the customer will dictate how their Rolls-Royce will look. They will be involved in the design of the shape, size and silhouette of their personal Rolls-Royce vision. Manufactured to the customer’s specifications, making every Rolls-Royce a unique bespoke masterpiece.

"We revealed 103EX to the world in 2016; Rolls-Royce set the agenda for the future of luxury mobility"
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

103EX itself, presented a vision to the world that acknowledges the fact that Rolls-Royces will continue to be the preferred marque of the most discerning, wealthy and powerful patrons in the world because of their preference for the presence and personal statement that only a Rolls-Royce can offer.

This being a view of future mobility that will see travel in a completely connected, fully autonomous luxury vehicle. The grand arrival required by those people who make the world turn whether royalty, heads of state or global superstars – is guaranteed by the visionary design of the Rolls-Royce 103EX.

This truth was reflected in the most dramatic aspect of the Rolls-Royce 103EX – the clamshell canopy and coach door. These stylish features allow the occupants to stand up from the best seat in the house, and descend from the futuristic lounge atmosphere of the cabin of 103EX clad in the finest silk, wool and wood.
