Automakers have been flirting with Google's Android operating system for years but it finally looks like a prominent player is about to adopt some Mountain View goodness.

Automakers have been flirting with Google's Android operating system for years but it finally looks like a prominent player is about to adopt some Mountain View goodness.

McLaren Life member MP4GASM was at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance earlier this month and was given a chance to play around with the 2014 MP4-12C. He quickly noticed the car features a new IRIS infotainment system that runs Android but closely mimics the experience of the previous system.

According to MP4GASM, the system features a more responsive touchscreen, improved iPhone compatibility and several apps including Google Maps, TuneIn Radio and what appears to be Chrome.

Current McLaren owners will reportedly be able to upgrade their infotainment system for $1,800 (€1360 / £ 1160). The upgrade will take about three hours as technicians will install a new head unit, display and "USB/input box."
