First Rolls-Royce concept to celebrate BMW 100th

Rolls-Royce will unveil its first ever concept car called Grand Sanctuary later this year as part of parent company BMW’s 100th anniversary celebrations.

In its 110-year history, Rolls-Royce has shown off a number of ‘experimental’ cars, but they were thinly-disguised previews of upcoming production models. The Grand Sanctuary is a proper concept in that it looks far ahead into the future.

According to Autocar, the Grand Sanctuary focuses on what the ultimate in interior luxury could be 100 years from now. A total of four concepts considering the next century of motoring will be unveiled by BMW’s brands this year. We’ve already seen the BMW Vision 100, which looked at the future of driving and in-car tech; there will also be a Mini themed on the future of car personalisation and a motorbike.

BMW was already announced that both the Rolls-Royce and Mini will be unveiled in London in June, coinciding with the Goodwood Festival of Speed where BMW is expected to have a large presence; the concepts will go on a world tour that visits the UK at that time. Tour starts in Beijing in May and ends in Los Angeles in October.
