These Clever Russians Hacked Their Car So It Can Be Driven With An iPad [Video]

We’ve seen some really neat car hacks that use the iPhone and iPad to do some crazy stuff, but this one might take the cake.

A group of Russians decided to take their Opel Vectra car and turn it into the “James Bond car” that could be driven with a cellphone in Tomorrow Never Dies. The result, is a beat up beauty that can be driven with an iPad. Check it out:

According to Jalopink, the crew had to replace the brakes, and steering motors of the car. The car can be controlled with an app that runs on an iPad 3, but because the pedals can only be full on or off, there’s still some fine tuning to do.

The creators’ ultimate goal is to be able to operate the car via the Internet, but because it’s so cold in Russia, they’re going to wait until it warms up before taking their project to its next stages.
