Rolls-Royce has given us a unique insight into what the ultimate luxury vehicle might look like over the next century with the Vision Next 100 concept car.

The car was unveiled at an event in North London, and has been hailed as the first "purely visionary" concept in the brand’s 112-year history. Its body work almost completely wraps around the wheels, making the car look like it's floating a few inches off the ground. The curved roofline and sloping rear end are probably the sportiest touches to a Rolls-Royce we've ever seen, yet it's still so obviously and beautifully identifiable as a Rolls.

The list of features is huge. There are laser headlights, a darkened glass canopy, and a larger Spirit of Ecstasy bonnet ornament made of handcrafted glass. A new "Crystal Water" color scheme on the lower half of the car is said to lighten the design and give it a sense of motion even when parked.

On the inside, there's Macassar wood paneling, OLED screens, and a "floating" sofa that sits on a hand-woven ivory wool carpet. There's no chauffeur, but there's something better than that. In Rolls-Royce's vision of the future, a human driver is replaced entirely by "Eleanor," an artificial intelligence that both gets you from A to B, and acts as a personal assistant.

Whether or not the car will ever make it out on to the street remains to be seen, but what we do know is that this is the most astonishing concept car we've seen from the brand to date. Check it out above.

For something a little more within grasp, here's 10 of the best super saloons on the road.
