Car power.

Ah, such delicious irony. The Toyota Sportivo Coupe concept car uses a mobile phone style SIM card instead of a key. But here’s the kicker, the SIM card can be programmed to wirelessly transmit details of the driver’s licence and address as they are caught speeding past a camera trap. Now who’s going to buy a car called Sportivo which is so clearly anti-sportivo, eh?

‘Depending on the driver’s experience and grade of licence, the card could control the engine power…Wireless technology would allow the car to communicate with the speed camera, and the fine could be deducted from the driver’s credit card before he or she even made it home.’
