\r\n\r\nCars of the future will no doubt fly, but until then we'll have to settle for this Microsoft Ford Mustang, Project Detroit. \u00a0But don't get us wrong, this is not your standard 2012 'Stang.\r\n\r\nFirst things first. \u00a0The body has been\u00a0retrofitted with a Dynacorn 1967 Mustang fastback replica body, which in our astute opinion actually makes a modern day Mustang actually attractive. \u00a0That said, you're getting the best of both worlds; today's engineering with an aggressive look that will never go out of style. \u00a0But it's not just the facade of this Mustang so makes it so drool worthy; it's what's on the inside.\r\n\r\n[nggallery id=312]\r\n\r\nYou've probably already noticed that insane amount of LED lighting draped in and around the car. \u00a0But what you didn't know is that this thing is stuffed full of Microsoft tech that will have you asking how you can get one of those - when's the last time you heard that about a Microsoft project.\r\n\r\nIn addition to in car WiFi, the Project Detroit Mustang has its very own 4G connection such that it can constantly be connected to the cloud and controlled from a Windows phone running\u00a0\u00a0Viper SmartStart app. \u00a0This allows its owner to see where the car is at, start and unlock it from any where in the world.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThere is of course Ford's SYNC tech for traffic updates, hands free and voice controls, but that hardly holds a candle to the instrument cluster, which has been replaced by a touchscreen, allowing its driver to swipe between displays and choose between a 2012 or 1967 instrument cluster. \u00a0And if that isn't enough, Microsoft has installed a HUD that projects fighter jet like info directly onto the windshield so the pilot never has to look down, though that would be a tough proposition given the aforementioned offering.\r\n\r\nThere is also an array of touchscreen displays running Windows 8 and a rear windshield that serves as a display for not just playing with the included Xbox 360, but displaying signs such as "don't tailgate me" to any body that hovers too close to your bumper. \u00a0And just because they could, they've installed Kinect sensors at the front and rear of the car and an PA system for making announcements, which can be\u00a0achieved\u00a0by speaking into a Windows Mobile phone.\r\n\r\nUnfortunately, Microsoft and West Coast Customs don't have plans to sell the car, but they will make the source code available on CodePlex. \u00a0The build air a few months ago on one of Discovery's Velocity Network.
