AUTO: Here's What the Future of BMW and Rolls-Royce Might Look Like / Bentley's New 57.7 Gigapixel Ad Is the Highest-Res Landscape Photo on Earth

Here's What the Future of BMW and Rolls-Royce Might Look Like

BMW is giving us a look at the future of automobiles with its latest video. Aptly-titled “A New Era,” the short film shows off BMW’s range of brands from BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad and what we can possibly expect in the not very far future.
The BMW Motorrad concept motorcycle features a digitized visor that offers data right in your range of vision, while the BMW car is self-driving. The Rolls-Royce concept looks especially futuristic, with a “virtual chauffeur” that spells the height of luxury. Lastly, the MINI concept is customizable.
Check out the video above and see what BMW envisions is the future. In the present, BMW just confirmed that three new M8s will be scheduled to arrive in 2019-2020.
Bentley Flying Spur W12 S 57 7 Gigapixel Ad - 3772103
If you thought Bentley‘s San Francisco-set, 53 billion pixel shot of the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase was something to behold, wait until you see the British luxury imprint’s latest interactive ad. Highlighting the Flying Spur W12 S, the image is befitting of the fastest sedan of all-time: at 57.7 gigapixels, the image — which was captured from a camera perched atop one of the tallest buildings in Dubai — is the highest-res landscape photo in the world. And whereas that shot of the Mulsanne — which was 4,425 times larger than the typical smartphone photo and roughly the size of an entire football field — stitched together 700 individual images, this one boasts a whopping 1,825 individual frames that took 48 hours to capture and 18 hours to download in final form.
Head on over to Bentley’s website to explore those 57.7 gigapixels in full.
