    Best hope for exceptionally smooth roads with that ground clearance!

    Oh, I also hope you only ever want to get out on the left too and don't mind the interior being drenched when it's raining when the door opens.

    Looks nice though!

    And you're fine providing you never want to turn the wheels left or right...

    As I was reading this I thought 'oh it's just a concept' but then read on.... I cannot believe this is going on sale. Beauty is is the eye of the beholder and all that but that has to be one of the ugliest cars I have ever set eyes on...

    I assume this will only be bought in the Middle East with long straight flat roads and no rain. Useless in London.

    "One of" ???

    Looks like the hands-down winner of the Butt-Ugly Car of All Time gold medal to me. I've seen better looking falling-down and dilapidated cowsheds.

    I hope it comes with it's own road crew for the removal of speed bumps, and replacing of them after you've gone past, or it'll be a fixed-position roadside ornament round here.

    Granted, it's unique and distinctive, but it's also hideously ugly. Perhaps it's what's inside that matters?

    Re: Rolls Royce 103EX to provide effortless autonomous travel

    I don't think it looks terrible to be honest, apart from that front on face. Looking at it in more detail it seems there's scope for the front wheels to turn just fine - there's a circular cut out that only looks flush when steering is at straight ahead. Likewise it seems to have internal (f1 style) suspension so as long as the ramp angle of the speed bump isn't too high it should be fine - perhaps there's a speed bump mode that further raises the ride height.

    Why would you want an autonomous Rolls, isn't that what a chauffeur is for?

    I find myself disliking a lot of these futuristic designs...they seem impractical and downright ugly!
