Why did we choose our 71 plate theme?
You may have seen our futuristic looking artwork on our new vehicle adverts, in the lead up to the new registration day on September 1st 2021. You might be wondering why we chose this design, read below to find out why!
1971 - The Invention of the Microprocessor
In 1971 Intel created the worlds first microrocessor, a complete, general purpose computor in a single chip! They called it the Intel 4004.
This small piece of technology may seem like it doesn't do much, especially when driving, yet in fact, it actually enhances your driving experience.
This advanced piece of onboard computer technology allows you to have greater vehicle safety, lower fuel consumption, lower engine pollution and higher automotive reliability. It's able to determine the optimum fuel/air ratio in response to engine temperature, engine speed and load conditions.
Without the MicroProcessor our cars may be very different to what we are used to today!
