McLaren and Audi hit top speed

Australian T3 - - CONTENTS -

The world’s most drool-wor­thy mo­tors fresh from the Geneva Mo­tor Show

This spy plane-like vir­tual cock­pit is the com­mand cen­tre you wish all cars had and turns the new Audi TT and TTS into wedges of su­per­charged sil­i­con that will blitz the Au­to­bahn, then take you to the shops. Be­hind the wheel, an LCD dis­play is your high-res gate­way to the car’s Nvidia Te­gra 3-pow­ered sys­tem. Con­se­quently, us­ing the sat­nav now feels less school run and more Death Star run, gi­ant map fill­ing your screen. “Stay on tar­get” etc.

Mean­while, the speedo and rev counters change size de­pen­dent on three pre­set modes. “Clas­sic” hands both di­als equal pres­ence, “In­fo­tain­ment” then min­imises them, while those who buy the TTS also get “Sport” thrown in, with the speedo front and cen­tre. $TBC, audi.com, Out 2014
