The Rolls-Royce 103EX, also known as the Vision 100, is an all-electric, self-driving concept that doesn’t even have a steering wheel, as passengers relax on a sofa instead and have their every need handled by “Eleanor,” a personal virtual assistant as well as chauffeur. It has finally returned home to the automaker’s headquarters in Goodwood, West Sussex, England, United Kingdom, after two-years of touring the world.

In addition to being fully autonomous, the 103EX ditches the traditional gas-powered V12 for a fully-electric powertrain and was built using “cutting-edge” manufacturing technologies. The chassis is entirely hand-built using the most advanced materials, and Supercar Blondie‘s in-depth tour shows off just some of its many high-tech features.
We are delighted to welcome 103EX home to Goodwood. After almost four years on international duties, we felt it was time for the experimental model to return home. It is a chance for those who worked on the project to relive some great memories, and for people who have joined us more recently to discover one of the most important cars we have ever built,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
