We’ve covered a lot of cars that have promised to provide everything a driver wants in a vehicle. The lofty expectations placed on these vehicles have become a case of hit-or-miss and as much as we’d like to believe these manufacturers and their haughty claims, more often than not, we’re left with that sinking feeling of wanting more.

That being said, there’s a Spanish company that has made claims about a new car technology that, quite frankly, trumps anything we’ve ever heard of before.

The company is IFR Automotive, who you might recall produced the featherweight coupe, Aspid. Well, IFR’s new creation technological creation is designed to give drivers to fine-tune every aspect of their car’s set-up on a touch screen, virtually providing the car with a smorgasbord of different settings.

According to IFR boss Ignacio Fernandez Rodriguez: “Every person has different tastes and this would allow them to fully customise the car for the road or track days. It could remember your name and remember settings for different tracks, be it Oulton Park or Silverstone. We are talking an infinite number of parameters.”

Thanks to a touch-screen module located inside the vehicle, the car can adjust everything from shocks, throttle response, steering heft, and the ECU.

We don’t blame you for being curious, but this is the closest thing to artificial-intelligence cars you can find. At least that’s what IFR is trying to say. With the use of its GPS, vehicles eqquipped with this technology can reportedly assimilate impending curves on the road and adjust its performance settings depending on how the car plans to its next maneuver. In addition to that, the driver can also ‘instruct’ the car on how fast I wants to go and the car, obedient as it is, will respond accordingly.

It’s a lot to take, really. But if this new technology is everything IFR says it is, then we might as well just be looking at the future of the automotive industry.

This car certainly has a weird design, but the features are outstanding.

Sounds pretty awsome, I think.
