How many high tech features, mobile electronics, and high tech accessories can you pack into a 2012 Mustang? Thanks to a recent project undertaken by Microsoft and West Coast Customs, we now know.
The retrofit Mustang 1967 body kit makes it look like the classic image of raw American muscle, but this ride has plenty of brains to match the brawn. The classic look is contrasted by the latest automotive gadgets, including a touch screen dashboard display featuring the new Windows 8 OS, a rear windshield that doubles as a projector screen, front and rear cameras that can be viewed remotely with a Windows Phone, full internet connectivity, and even an Xbox that can be played online through the heads up display. You can even use the car as a remote microphone to ward off suspicious characters or just spook unsuspecting pedestrians.
