    Great concept car this from Land Rover. Was being tested in NYC recently.

    The iPhone will slot into a holder and can be used to start the car!!

    WOW. I don't know how it works but I love it. I wish it were in the Range Rover though. :(

    It is an awesome idea. One has to wonder if you have to jailbreak to do that. And what will happen if you need to replace your iPhone?

    Looks cool, if only Land Rover's had higher resale value.

    The look inside is over-the-top and pretty gaudy, but it's a good idea (I would personally love the iPhone in there with just a 'previous', 'next', and 'pause' button for music controls. Volume could be on the normal head unit and on the steering wheel.

    That would be quite excellent, I think. And the outside of the vehicle is pretty amazing. Reminds me of the first time I saw the Infiniti FX.

    Simple. Car has big battery.
    So simple even a caveman can comprehend...

    Obviously you don't own an iPhone, if you do, you would know that iPhone has really good notices about battery life.

    Well, hope you have a 6, 7 figure industrial 3d printer an tons of metallic ink... =p

    Who said there are no keys?

    You did.

    So you answer the question since you made it up.

    that leather on the grip and the glass plastic look do not mix. the concept is badass but the look, could use some editing to say the least. i love land rovers though

    O2 aren't going to sell them. It'll be in the Apple Store soon under iPhone accessories! :)

    And to think all I want is to be able to play my iPod in my Vauxhall Tigra. :(
