I think ABS is useful, but it isn't a panacea either since people need to know how to use it properly (stomp on the brakes, but keep steering), too. What we really need is better driver education and training. The Big Mac had a certain design philosophy, and I'm not sure it's an appropriate car for most people: 600+ HP through the rear wheels with a "vivid" throttle response, low rotational inertia, and no traction control = lots and lots of rope. There's a story of a newly-minted BMW head executive crashing one in the parking lot when he went to try it out in the first days of his job. If you watch how most cars' suspensions lurch when they pull away from a stop, I don't think I want most people's right feet on the business end of cars like the F1. BTW, the F1 team considered carbon and ceramic brakes, but they don't work well in street situations because they're too cold. They've improved quite a bit as Ferrari and Porsche now offer them. But that doesn't mean it's not the greatest car that will ever be built.
