Hopping on the performance-data-recording bandwagon, Volkswagen is now offering its customers the option to document every possible performance criteria with the LogBox and RaceApp feature – mirroring what Renault has done with its R.S. Monitor feature.

Priced at €299 (RM1,276), the LogBox is installed inside the vehicle, which then transmits all the relevant data to the RaceApp feature on the respective owner’s smartphone via a Bluetooth connection. The app then streams live information to the driver including speed, boost pressure, G-forces harnessed and the like.

For individuals with something to prove, the app also possesses a record mode which registers information such as lap times and best century sprint runs. RaceApp also features the ability to record an overview of the lap of a circuit that the owner has just driven on.
