California vs. Uber, 10,000th McLaren, Trump appoints Musk: What's New @ The Car Connection

McLaren just hit a significant milestone. The creator of wildly exotic super machines has just built its 10,000th car. For a low-volume manufacturer that has officially been in business for just over five years, that’s a very big number and an impressive achievement. Car number 10,000 is a 570S finished in Ceramic Gray, and it’s going to stick around Woking as a new member of the automaker’s Heritage Collection.

BMW is currently leading the way when it comes to in-car technology with its Gesture Control system that debuted on the 2016 7-Series. The system allows you to make basic commands by simply waving a finger.  

Less than a week after the signing of the SAVE Act legislation in Michigan, the most lenient yet when it comes to self-driving cars, General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] has announced that it will start testing Chevrolet Bolt EV-based self-driving prototypes in the state.
