New Renault has 3 ipod docks and 'mixing desk'

Catering for a slightly ravier customer than the VW Guitar, Module Records Blog reports on the new Renault Twingo concept car, which features not one, not two, but three iPod docks, and a mixing desk built into the dashboard: "Twingo Concept has found inspiration in youth culture and in its love of music and freedom. The centre console features a USB port as well as sockets for devices like Apple's iPod and the Nokia Smartphone. A mixing deck built into the dashboard is ideal for partying with friends. The musical focus is also reflected in the highly visual graphics of the dashboard, the upper part of which features a pattern based on the graphic equalizer bars with which music-lovers are naturally familiar. It is evocative of the bass rhythms that will pound from the door-mounted speakers and contrasts with the matt finish of the lower part of the dashboard." No, I have no idea what kind of mixing desk might be built into the dashboard. There's a tantalising picture on the Module Records site, but that's it.

Looks like a good way to get into a car accident!
 
I wouldn't mind a slot for my iPod in my car, but a dj mixer? that's just stoopid!

Never mind the mixer, you had better have small hands or else shifting gears could interrupt your music session as you knock the forward iPod out of its slot.
 
I smell another huge negligence class-action lawsuit against the manufacturer!!!!

(People are bad enough trying to drive using cellphones.... but driving while mixing MUSIC???? Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.)
 
you can always spot the dudes mixing in the cars..their heads are all crooked sideways leaning into one side of the headphones. watch out for them.
 
With a lit joystick!!!
 
BUT IS IT ANALOG???
 
Stack that motor! It's like trying to pilot the brave ship SS triangle in asteroids whilst DJing in a nightclub. Tears are inevitable.
 
The device in the rearmost slot looks more like a PocketPC or a PDA of some kind than an iPod, doesn't it?
 
Sadly, features like that never make it to production cars.
