Munich: Luxury automaker BMW AG is showing off a sleek concept car aimed at a future in which drivers choose between the pleasures of high-performance driving and letting the car take control.

The company unveiled the Vision Next 100 ceremonies on Monday for the company's 100th birthday at Munich's Olympic Hall.

The car offers a choice of driver-controlled or vehicle-controlled operations. In driver mode, the car indicates the ideal driving line and speed; in "ease" or autonomous mode, the steering wheel retracts and the driver and front-seat passenger can turn to face each other.
