I wonder what Nvidia chips are used in Audis and BMWs?  The video display, perhaps: there's a nifty 3D rendered view of the GPS mapping info in the new BMWs?  I don't see a real need for that kind of horsepower in an Engine Control Unit.  Maybe in a smart cruise control that does station keeping, or in a collision avoidance system.  Actually, I don't really see Nvidia being in the "safety critical" space at all.
I really wouldnt be suprised if its the tegra's that would be in those vehicles. Only thing i coudl think of it would be used in in car GPS or the fancy radio setup with all those features they have, who knows.
