BMW Brings Added Info To Your Fingertips... (video)

BMW is taking advantage of the prime visual real-estate right on the steering wheel by adding extra data and blinking lights. Priced at $1,700... the M Performance sport steering wheel may bring you the extra advantage when navigating the track...
Check it out action in the video demo below: 
Essentially it's a high-grip Alcantara wheel, with a small OLED display at 12 o'clock, and two LED meters on either side. There are three readout modes: EfficientDynamics, Sport and Race. The former will tell you average fuel consumption, speed as well as oil and water temperature. Sport mode will tell you lateral g-force data while the LED strips provide cues for gear shifts. Lap times, with section splits, and even a drag-style Christmas tree mode will help you get those times down.
