In The Year 2050, The Rolls-Royce Phantom Could Look Like This

Penning a new Rolls-Royce Phantom while maintaining its trademark design is not an easy task, but this rendering might be onto something.

Described as a 2050 model by Matthew Parsons, who posted it on Behance, the CGIs look pretty much spot on, with the instantly recognizable front end dominated by the specific grille and slender headlights, and a dual-tone paintwork.

The artist has drawn inspiration from the brand’s Vision Next 100 Concept, which debuted last year to honor the BMW Group’s centenary, with its futuristic design, fully autonomous driving, and a zero-emission electric powertrain, as the brand itself said that internal combustion engines are unlikely to survive in the future.

Rolls-Royce won’t be waving goodbye to the V12 for now, as the next generation is expected to use a re-worked version of the current 6.75-liter unit. The engine will become more powerful and will also keep up with the times by being more fuel efficient.

Speaking of the new generation Rolls-Royce Phantom, it is believed to be unveiled in 2018, with an evolutionary design, a completely new cabin, and some of BMW’s latest driver assistance systems, all of which will make the brand’s flagship saloon the preferred chauffeur’s drive of choice once again.

      Slow news day and Carscoops is making up $h*t now. LOL. And this looks like a 2014 design.

    I like Rolls Royce. But if it will might decline by 2030’s or 2040’s why future luxury goods brands will be layoff or decline. I believe it will be very serious situation. it will be different business in 2050’s.

      How do you figure?

    This design is okay as long as you don’t park it next to wall or car. You’ll never get out, just a small point, unless it’s a sliding one? Van like packages will rule by then, with stand up space, and living room like packages, plus it will drive itself.

    This is something they should do around 2025, being a luxury car brand and especially since people would be spending about 300-400 grand on it.

  • No.

    2050, seriously? 2018 LC500 looks more futuristic

    I don´t think so…

  • CarbonPhiber

    Oh I really don’t think so. Thanks anyway.

  • Shobin Drogan

    I don’t think RR will ever make cars that have angular or sharp edges. Their cars have always been more on the conservative side but I really approve of this overall design.

  • JonPaul

    Horrible looking. This will cause me to have nightmares.

    Nice try, but no! Rolls Royce should be about graceful, elegant & classical lines relative to what is contemporary. Plus, I highly doubt cars in 2050 cars will look anything like this. This is too conventional, too today, despite it being based on a futuristic concept. Consider what GM stylists in the mid-50’s projected what cars would look like by the year 2000. They were way off the mark and got it all wrong. So it is here. By the year 2050, RR would most likely be building a super quiet, super efficient vehicle for the rich that would fly and do everything better.
