NO RATINGS
Since an ever-increasing proportion of vehicles on the road today are using MCU-regulated control systems (ABS brakes, traction control, throttle, fuel mixture, to name a few), do you think it time to have some clearinghouse of experts to examine the software operating in these things?  The Top Gear fan in me wants very much to assure myself that the next purchaser of a McLaren or Bugatti can be certain to be under safe operating conditions as much as possible, since these cars, especially, are running closer to the ragged edge than any other vehicles, other than professional racing cars.  I can assume the racing teams are closely scrutinising the code as a natural production process :-)
