Luxury car maker Audi has unveiled the world's first social media friendly car in Dublin.
The car's high-tech system, seen exclusively by The Irish Independent, also features voice control and touch-sensitive panels that allow drivers to search for media content.
The car can also be used as a WiFi hotspot that lets passengers use broadband on their own phones and tablets, as it incorporates a 4G card slot that connects to mobile broadband services of up to 30Mbs.
However, the car's movie and television services can only be played when the vehicle is stationary, to avoid dangerous driving practices.
The TT, which will go on sale here in October, also has heat sensors which detect when a human or another vehicle is approaching, dimming the car's lights to avoid blinding the other person.
