BMW Unveils Mini and Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 Concepts in London

BMW AG previewed its vision for the future of urban driving on Thursday with the unveiling of two new Vision Next 100 concept vehicles from its Mini and Rolls-Royce brands.

The Mini Vision Next 100 is designed to be capable of picking up passengers, parking and charging without human intervention. The car will also allow its drivers to change its exterior color to meet personal preferences.

The Rolls-Royce concept, codenamed the 103EX, is a self-chauffeured coupe that extends nearly 20 feet in length. The concept features an electronic virtual assistant named Eleanor, handcrafted Macassar wood panelling and a silk “throne” from which “the most discerning and powerful patrons in the world” can take in their surroundings.

The two concepts are said to embody BMW’s unconventional view of a future in which technology will come to the forefront, shared ownership will be prevalent and drivers will be unnecessary.

    Both are hideous. I'm also pretty sure the 100 year anniversary for both RR and Mini isn't this year either...

    The Mini concept is at least visionary and practical but that Rolls-Royce looks like the punchline from a bad joke.
