Simulated BMW M3 Ride: Bmw's Press Event

It appears BMW is outfitting their new BMW M3 with racing software (which somewhat resembles the famed “Gran Turismo” game released by Sony Entertainment), a projector which displays the driving view on the BMW M3 windshield, and a real-time interaction between the game and the car. As one can see from the video, the driver shifts the M3 and the game software responds to each shift. Additionally the car also interacts with the environment by moving up and down the suspension when the driver encounters certain obstacles.

Although testing the new M3 in the real world environment is what I would prefer this definitely has to be the next best thing. No word yet on whether these simulators will be popping up across dealerships.
