A top car for gamers

Beautiful car.  But no wheel, no pedals, only a joystick. I'd think it was a joke, only it's too well made.
I know I couldn't drive it. But I know some who could!
Pete points to this.

[Thanks to Kirk]

I´ve often been wondering why I´m still sitting behind a wheel, and using my feet to steer a vehicle, like, um, a century ago.

I´ve been dreaming of exactly the car that you´re showing. Thanks for sharing.

Although an everyday-also-holding-mobile-cigarrette-arm-out-of-the-window-and-boomboxes-on-and babbling-coke-drinking driver will easily convert and be able to handle these new controlling elements and be a relaxed driver.


In some planes, tiny or big, these stick controls have already become a matter of reality........

I´d love to drive such a car, with a specific rating amended to my licence. It´s a totally different way of driving after all.

It's an amazing looking piece of kit, and hard to believe that it's now 14 years old.

It certainly doesn't look two years older than Windows 98!

Thanks. Indeed.

One thing you should know: my two brothers are both car buffs (please refrain from easy puns!), and they tell me it's "only a prototype". You won't get passed by THIS glorified videogaming console while cruising on the highway!

Especially if it's programmed with the Blue Screen of Windows 98!!! (^_^)
