IS THIS THE FUTURE OF SPORTING VAUXHALLS? GM RELEASE DETAILS OF THEIR GROUNDBREAKING CONCEPT CAR…
It’s no surprise that the latest concept car to emerge from the GM stable offers a huge amount of tech. The GT Concept’s flagship feature is what GM call the Human Machine Interface (HMI), which means the car is operated purely by voice control and a central touchpad, making it button-less. It also has a self learning system which recognises the driver’s habits and needs. So it will choose the right music, the correct route, or even the correct temperature for any given situation. GM proudly claim that the “HMI could even recognise whether passengers want to listen to hip-hop or chill-out music”. It’s primarily operated by voice control but there’s also a large touchpad on the centre console for manual inputting of commands.
Style wise there’s definitely echoes of the classic Opel GT, with unusual side window treatment and rather funky red tyres. As ever with these kind of cars they’re a long way from a production reality, but it’s always interesting to see what the future holds and it’s not unusual for concept car tech to filter down into normal models, albeit not straight away. We don’t know about you, but we’d happily own one!
Groovy coloured tyres. Are they the
future, or just concept car folly?
