Bored with basic black? Jazzing up the body of this futuristic vessel is as simple as downloading a smartphone app.
Not only can drivers change the color of their vehicle, they can also create content, transforming their ride into a rolling billboard conveying personal messages. They can also customize the interior, using color, light and patterns to accentuate their aura, sort of like a giant mood ring.
To help them find their way, drivers can conjure up a virtual navigation concierge. Along the way, their car can link up with other vehicles – and they can connect with friends riding inside.
There’s no need for an old-school tune-up on this new-fangled equipment. A network update function ensures the software for the vehicle’s drive, control and multimedia system is always the latest version.
