    Background: America's latest Cadillac is but one stage from the automaton car that drives itself. Shown at Daytona Beach, USA, this experimental car carries a radar 'nose' which alerts the driver when a pedestrian's jaywalking ahead.

    It's dash board looks like that of a jet plane. The car itself has the appearance of a plane with its transparent plastic roof.

    Doors slide open at the touch of a button and the exhaust is situated ahead of the front wheels.
