To mark the centenary of the BMW Group, which owns the Rolls-Royce emblem, the designers of each brand were mobilized to imagine their vision of the car in a hundred years. Taking into account the changes in society, and based on the key trends and forecasts, the firm Goodwood formulated a thesis in the form of this concept car for the least surprising. Named Rolls-Royce Vision 100 Next, it boasts convey “the pioneering spirit of the brand,” according to Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group design. At the risk of disconcerting.
With its high speed – 1.6 meters – of “futuristic catamaran” seeming to float on its thin 28 inch wheels partially keeled, the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 breaks the code of its current models straight and solid design. Everything is done to limit friction with the road, for reasons of consumption and noise, and the air with its very streamlined silhouette – 5.9 meters! – So drop to the enormous diffuser escaping towards the stern.
Nevertheless, the signing of the firm Goodwood remains anchored on some elements of the bodywork, as the inevitable statuette bow “Spirit of Ecstasy”, the chrome rims on the edge of Art Deco, the two-tone paint, “bonnet” and the polished metal grille required to identify, here very vertical, reminding beaver teeth or objectively Rolls-Royce models 1920 brand adds, however, that this style of study is one of the permitted possibilities by technology, engineers and designers can draw in the future a real new car based on the same chassis, according to the wishes of his client.
Regarding the appearance, will each own an idea, but it seems that the manufacturer has thrown pell-mell all its innovations in terms of technology and design without any consistency. The end result is crazy. And you what do you think ?
