Ten Things We Learned This Week
Traffic robots, Mustang pinball and James May erotica: it’s another weird week in the world of cars
Posted: 10 Feb 2014
If you love (a) Mustangs and (b) pinball, this was a good week
Chicago-based pinball machine manufacturer (now there's a phrase we didn't think we'd get the chance to use on TopGear.com) this week revealed the ‘Mustang Pro', a game honouring Ford's muscle-car icon in tiny-shiny-ball form.
We're told Mustang Pro boasts eight different ‘racing scenarios', including, drag racing, road races, rallies, police pursuits... and drifting. Physicists, help us out here: is it even possible for a low-friction, spherical object to ‘drift'?
It's even, we're told, ‘hosted' by Top Gear USA's Tanner Foust. A digital recreation of Tanner, we must assume. Otherwise he's going to be very squashed in there.
