My thoughts were this. It would be extremely futuristic and interesting if the team were to implement an AI that would tell you how your car was doing on your HUD.
For example: a 3D holographic image of your car in a corner of your monitor would appear whenever you took hits and light up the damaged part in red. The voice would then say something, such as "wheels compromised" or "weapons compromised"
And even a radar type display and the voice could say "Incoming missile" or something to that effect. Like a Jarvis-from-Ironman type of AI.
