WAT makes the APMA Connected Car so special?

001__C1A3282Last week, the most Canadian connected concept car, ever, was shown at the APMA( Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association) in Canada and one that the Ontario’s drunken mayor Rob Ford can’t drive because it has an alcohol interlock device on it.

The specially decked out Lexus RX350 was connected and reconfigured by the University of Waterloo.
