    Acurabot - Pure insanity

    I just thought that I'd point to this in case anyone hasn't seen it yet -- it's currently making the gadget blog rounds, so probably if you have a carpc and someone knows about it, they'll send you this link...

    Not strictly a car pc but holy hell

    wouldn't last 5 minutes in my area. They'd nick the wheels whilst it was moving - little b*ggers

    I duno.. all that flash and bling makes me think all money and no sense. All this car makes me want to do is spit sunflower seeds in his floorboards just to watch him cycle.

    Well to be fair to whoever made it -- it's just a show car and probably not meant to be driven at all (Reference the monitors in the engine compartment - they would melt if that engine was operated for more than a couple minutes at most). As a media piece, etc. it might even turn a profit if it can win some decent prize money. Obviously there is some serious sponsorship coming to him from blaupunkt, so other than the time it took, it probably wasn't terribly expensive either -- I'd put it at <$100K

    Plus, if you're going to rice your car out, you might as well go all out

    I think that it's a demo vehicle from Blaupunkt. Lots of manufacturers build show cars like these all the time, and trailer them to events. Ever see Alpines latest show vehicles? The single-seat Civic they just did makes this one look tame by comparison: http://ecominet2.alpine-usa.com/html....html?par=p1c4
