BMW made the most insane driverless concept car we've ever seen

The car will recognise who you are when you approach it, and greet you with a light-up sign.

BMW RECENTLY UNVEILED its Mini Vision Next 100 concept car as part of its vision for the future of driving, and we’re big fans.

The car is sleek, eye-catching, and geared toward a future where driverless cars and ride-sharing will play a bigger role.

BMW recently unveiled a Rolls-Royce concept car that also fits that vision.

The car is designed for a future where ride-sharing is increasingly more common. It can recognise who you are when you approach it, and greet you with a light-up sign.
