    EXTERIOR
    Complete Head up display mapping the road ahead including night vision. No headlights required

    Electronic Road Signs Displayed in the car (all external road signs will be obsolete, including roadside lighting - safer as no poles to crash into)

    Transceiver monitoring all vehicles in vicinity, direction & speed onto the head up display. System will colour 'grade' drivers near you identifying their driving history.. points on license, crash history, age, probation etc etc (System will have built in cameras and a 'one click' reporting system - hotlinked to police, DVLA, Emergency Services etc)

    No 'a' 'b' or 'c' Pillars, creating a complete 360 degree view through windows and roof

    No wing mirrors will be needed as driver will be notified of potential risks electronically

    Glass tint will be electronically polorized and zone controlled from totally clear to completely black (for passenger section, kids section or when parked)

    No gaps or seams in bodywork whatsoever. When a door needs to be opened, an electronic 'molecule process' will 'unfuse' the door shape away from the body so that the door can be opened. 'refused' when shut (this process creates extra strength & rigidity for sporty cars)

    Electronically Managed Paint Colour, changeable by computer

    'Pitlane' electronically controlled speed through urban areas

    Seats will deform to your exact body shape, adhering to authopedic settings

    Stearing wheel will change shape, texture, thickness and colour depending on your driving mood.

    Cars will have exterior lighting but this will be cosmetic only and relatively unrestricted. Break lights, indicators, fog lights will not be needed as intended change of direction & braking manoeuvres will be detected or transmitted electronically to other vehicles (Classic cars will get 'black box' upgrade)

    Totally pointless stealing a car due to vehicle tracking, immobilizers etc

    Automatic Driver Assist will provide, A to B unassisted 'electronic chauffer', parking assist, unassisted 'race mode', unassisted 'collection when p!ssed' mode

    0-60, BHP & NM Torque setting will be electronically transmitted to traffic light front row vehicles, to negate the need for 'burn outs' - Top Trump Stylie

    Tyres will dynamically change height & size depending on driving Style & weather conditions. Low profile & wide for sporty driving, High profile when parking (to protect alloys from curb stones) and high profile and thin, for snowy weather

    All brakes will be carbon ceramic BY LAW

    Engines will never need servicing and if you need more power, a new engine will be fitted to your existing car if required.


    INTERIOR
    All cars will have much improved interior lighting, changing ambient colour mood

    Emergency Service vehicles will no longer need flashing lights or sirens as vehicles & drivers will be electronically notified and cars will automatically 'pull over' well in advance

    In car heating will be done via a low radiation 'microwave' type system. Each occupent will select their desired heat setting and the system will gently 'microwave' the selected part of their body to that temperature, works Hot and Cold

    Car Dashboard will be completely dynamic and 'customizable' by user setting

    Carpet dirt and small stones are 'vapourized' by new 'microwave' cleaning system, carbon deposits are then filtered through the carpet mats and disposed of automatically

    THE WORLD
    Vauxhall has become the largest financial car firm on the planet with 58% market strength

    Ferrari have stopped building road cars, as their isnt any point anymore. Track cars are available for £1.2billion each, but they have turned their attention to high speed submersibles as everyone who has money is now living off shore, below sea level.

    Jeramy Clarkson died in 2037 whilst crashing his e-type head on with an emergency service vehicle (he didnt do the 'black box' upgrade as it was a waste of money)

    Average cost of a family pod car is now £1,380,000 but 0% finance is available

    London Congestion charge has been finally abandoned as no-one except royalty can afford to drive in London

    1.5 Million cars were left abandoned due to 'software virus' leaving commuters walking to work

    45 Prestige Vehicles were stolen using unassisted collection "when p!ssed" mode, theives accessed vehicles remotely 'on-online' and directed vehicles to 'The Toby Jug' in north london. Owners were unaware whilst sleeping. The owner of 'The Toby Jug' had no comment

    As you can see, I enjoyed this one....... still a kid at heart....
