Change Dash To Match Your Mood
Swipe the touch-screen and toggle between different dashboard skins including a 1967 Mustang, a 2012 Mustang and a Windows 8 metro version.
Keep Your Eyes On The Road
Similar to what's found in fighter jets, the windshield contains a driver side and passenger side heads-up display (HUD) highlighting telemetry and Bing Maps information directly on the windshield. View nearby restaurants, shopping centers and gas stations all without taking an eye off the road.
Take The Game On The Road
The entertainment system comes complete with an XBOX 360 and a Kinect. When parked, the rear windshield can actuate up to serve as a projector screen for playing movies or video games from behind the car.
Remote Control With Windows Phone
Although the Mustang's design makes the car easy to spot, keep tabs on the car's location even when it is out of sign. Locate, unlock, and start the car all from the Viper SmartStart app for Windows Phone.
Surroundings Streamed Live
Front and rear Kinect cameras provide a live video feed of surrounding pedestrians and objects. You can even watch and listen to the live audio and video stream from the Kinect remotely using a Windows Phone.
Access Wifi Wherever
To ensure the Mustand is always online and connected to the cloud, the vehicle has a built-in 4G wireless network that supports multiple devices.
Communication Through The Cloud
Using the built-in wireless network, the Mustand is able to communicate with cloud services including Bing Maps, Viper's Smart Start system as well as store real-time telemetry data such as speed, location, RPM and fuel level in Windows Azure.
Stay Connected With Sync
Access The External Audio System
The audio system acts as a public address system so you can speak into your phone and have the audio played through the car's external speakers. Using this system, the car also has customized car horn "ringtones" that enable you to change what sound plays when the horn is honked.
Customize The Rear Windshield
While driving, the rear windshield can serve as a customizable display system that can play video, show images and display custom messages, like "Stop tailgating me please!".
