USB Kill vs Car: Are you at risk?

At least three car manufacturers have purchased USB Killers - why?
We were curious, and so we decided to sacrifice our (terrible) car to see just what car manufacturers are worried about.

When we plugged in the USB Kill - the stereo and the dash system were instantly deactivated.

So to confirm: cars are vulnerable to the USB Power Surge Attack.

While the car we tested is a dumb-car (now even more dumb..) - "smart" cars and connected cars could lose vital systems.
Just how much of the car / CAN-BUS system can be disabled? More testing is needed - and for that we need your help!
