    Rolls-Royce’s new concept is here and it’s…. Well, it’s something. Dubbed the “Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100,” a name we will not use again, the wild-eyed concept imagines—and satisfies—the self-glorifying demands of the 22nd century oligarch.

    To announce the car, the BMW-owned luxury automaker wrote up a Proustian press release that’s light on practical details (it drives itself, somehow; it’s zero-emissions, somehow) but heavy on Rolls-Royciness.

    Really, the best way to understand what the Brits are going for here is to focus on how they describe the car. So for your edification, here’s a not-quite exhaustive list of all the adjectives Rolls-Royce uses to describe the concept car and its many opulent features:

    That is horrible. Just my opinion though. Why don't they go back to the classics. They look better than anything today. ;)


    NOW these are cars!

    You'll see little pieces of the design on future RR. I don't think they intend to produce it as is. That's how most concepts go. I know there are exceptions but that's just what they are, exceptions.

    my husband just bought me a porsche boxter for my birthday. IMO, the prettiest and best handling car out there. the moment i went for a test tribe, i knew it was meant for me.

    It's kind of cool looking, actually.

    But it looks like you'd have to ship the damn thing back to Westhampnett to get a tire changed. :D
