Domino's Pizza Gets Into the Car Business: Meet the Domino's DXP test 1-1

Domino's Pizza delivers some 400 million hot pizzas every year. That's a lot of calories, and a lot of dough (both literally and figuratively).

To make this happen, the pizza giant teamed with Roush and a former General Motors R&D executive, to build 100 of these crowdsource-designed Domino's DXP delivery cars.

With the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal now reaching a crescendo in terms of fines and legal penalties, German officials have been hesitant to issue any form of criticism against the automaker with some even showing their support by revealing that the company is too big to fail.
