As the sun has seemingly, mercifully set on that trend known as ghost riding, perhaps the kids who were stepping out of their moving cars for YouTube fame can graduate to the Remote Control Range Rover Sport.

This prototype system from Range Rover UK lets you use a smartphone app to control a Range Rover Sport’s steering, brakes, and throttle while standing outside of the vehicle. Before you get any crazy ideas, just know that the vehicle’s speed is limited to 4 mph and the phone needs to be within 10 feet of the SUV. So when would you use this? Think of a situation where you’re trying to navigate some particularly treacherous terrain, or maybe need to step outside of the vehicle to see if you can really squeeze into that tight parking spot.
A Remote Control Range Rover Sport research vehicle demonstrates how a driver could control the vehicle from outside the car via their smartphone. The smartphone app allows the driver to steer, accelerate and brake as well as changing from high and low range. This would allow the driver to walk alongside the car, at a maximum speed of 4mph, to manoeuvre their car out of challenging situations safely, or even to negotiate difficult off-road terrains. The smartphone app also allows the driver to reverse the car out of a parking space if someone has parked too close for them to open the door.
No word if this technology will ever hit production models. Download the video below.
