Thoughts About Lamborghini Launching The Huracan EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder Via Augmented Reality

This is unprecedented for the Auto Industry. Augmented Reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory and olfactory.

We expect that more manufacturers will adopt AR as a channel to launch vehicles. This allows for viewers, and potential buyers to experience a vehicle virtually. Talk about an experience!
