Ford Mustang Track Apps LCD Screen Tests Your Driving Skills

Follow Antony



The 2013 Ford Mustang looks to be taking a leaf from the Nissan GT-R's book in an effort to make its driving experience more interactive than ever.

The GT-R has always been a car known for its in-car tech and when the R35 was launched it gave drivers access to more display functions than ever before, with additional gauges and graphs designed by the creators of the Gran Turismo video game series.

Mustang Track Apps appears to be similar, according to Mashable. The 2013 Mustang will feature a 4.2-inch LCD screen that takes information from the car's in-built sensors and displays the data on the screen.

This means you'll be able to measure your 0-30mph, 0-60mph and 0-100mph times, measure g-force in cornering and even time your full-bore starts with a drag strip-style Christmas tree light sequence. When you're not spending your whole time speeding up it has a braking performance function too. It even keeps statistics of your top times for reviewing later.

The 4.2-inch screen will also be used for basic information such as fuel economy and trip distance, so it'll suit more day-to-day applications too.

Ford sums up Track Apps as saying "it puts more data at their fingertips than ever before".
