Chrysler is working on UConnect Web, a services that brings internet to your car using cellular and WiFi technology. I can't think of anything that could go wrong here.

Anyone in the car will be able to check e-mail, download music, play games and even upload photos from an SD card directly to Flickr. Chrysler says any wireless device and "all major gaming systems" will work with UConnect. Again, I can't think of anything that could possibly go wrong.

"In today's market, Chrysler's mission is to bring innovation to market more quickly," Chrysler Vice President Frank Klegon says.

Which cars will have the new service hasn't been announced yet, but one thing is for sure: Nothing will go wrong.

WebRidesTV.com has a great video comparing a Nissan GT-R and a Ford GT. The idea behind the video is that they are playing a game of Gran Turismo 5 in real life.

It doesn't go that far, but it is a cool video and features two sweet rides.

The videogame version of the Score International's Baja 1000 desert race promises to give gamers a chance to participate in blistering, sun-drenched endurance races without ever leaving their climate-controlled living rooms.

According to Activision, the game features

Over 90 vehicles across multiple classes... including trophy trucks, class I, motorcycles, ATVs and more – the game challenges players to not only be first across the finish line, but also keep their machine intact! Hyper-realistic dirt and damage modeling in the game means players need to be crazy enough to take chances, but not so reckless that their vehicle is destroyed before the race is over.

Developed by Left Field Productions, the game will be available this fall for the PlayStation 2, PLAYSTATION 3 , Xbox 360, Wii and PC. Here's a single, lonely screenshot.

The makers of DIRT are back with a new game, GRID. This game is all about drifting and arcade style racing. I took the demo for a spin and put my drifting skills to the test (I failed).

Just to prove there are no hard feelings, I chose the PS3 demo over the Xbox 360 demo.

The full game will release on June 3, 2008 for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Think you're a great virtual driver in Gran Turismo? Put it to the test and you could win a spot in a real race.

Sony and Nissan will be holding an online tournament (Europe only) to find the best fake driver. The event will run 8 months and while details are currently scarce, the winner will get 4 months of real race training before they get to race in real life.

The GT Academy contest features the Nissan 350Z and the winner gets to drive one in a real 24-hour endurance race later this year in Dubai.

They should be warned, however, as real life does accurately model vehicle and bodily damage. Here's the first 15 minutes of GT5: Prologue.

According to some rag called the New York Times, an inventor named Floyd S. Butterfield built the E-Fuel 100 MicroFueler, which combines sugar and yeast to ferment an alcoholic brew that distills into ethanol, which can be use to power automobiles.

Butterfield says that using these ingredients it should only cost about $1 per gallon to make this type of fuel (even cheaper when you put stale beer into the system since the fermentation is already done). But critics say that a gallon of the MicroFueler's ethanol produces only 12.5% of the carbon from a gallon of normal gasoline. And since sugar costs 20-cents per pound, and you need 10 to 14 pounds to make a gallon of ethanol, it ain’t exactly cheap. But it is good for the environment!

Enjoy, and please remember that these brave men are professional bitch-flippers.  Do not try this at home.  Do it in an empty parking lot.

Attack of the Show got a chance to check out the 2009 Nissan GT-R earlier this week, but we wanted to know more about the cars unique navigation system. Why?

Polyphony Digital, the makers of Gran Turismo actually helped design it. That's why. In return, Nissan helped Polyphony get the in-game GT-R running as close to real life as possible.

SEGA has hit the brakes on SEGA Racing Studio, the development house behind the recently released SEGA Rally REVO. The studio has officially been shut down.

This is most likely due to poor sales of Rally REVO.

We can only hope that this is how SEGA broke the news to the studio. 

 

 

Next-Gen.biz: Confirmed: Sega Racing Studio Closes

Here's a bummer: An unnamed source has told Next Generation that a never-announced current-gen version of the classic  car-smashing+pedestrian killing game Carmageddon is canceled.

The game was apparently a project at Full Auto developer Pseudo Interactive, a company that is closing its doors. 

It's hard to be excited for a game and then mourn its passing in the same moment: We need a tissue. But the world is not without hope: Someone else could pick up this tragically un-exploited intellectual property and make a Carmageddon game.
