Long Yu took his time to scroll through the list of vehicles and also analysed their description.
He also made sure to take a good look at the holographic models of the vehicles. Zooming in and out, rotating back and forth, he checked each vehicle in detail before finally making his decision.
'System, I want to exchange for the Dartz Prombron Black Shark Vehicle,' he told the system.

[Exchange Price: 17,000,000 yuan]
Long Yu sucked in a cold breath when he saw the price tag revealed by the system. Exchanging for this vehicle would surely put a big dent in his pockets.
Nevertheless, Long Yu has his reasons and was resolved to exchange for it. Looking around to make sure there was no one near his vicinity, he went ahead with the exchange.
'Confirm exchange!' he told the system.
Instantly, he could see a large-sized vehicle materialising in front of him. The vehicle has the shape of an SUV, with a sleek matt black paint.
One could already tell from the its solid build, that it is a hundred times tougher than a normal car.
If an analogy was to be given, it would be as if comparing between a body builder with rock hard muscles, and a man with a scrawny physique.
Long Yu excitedly circled around the Black Shark as he admired its tank-like design. Its headlights looked as if the vehicle was squinting, ready to ram its enemy to kingdom come.
Furthermore, there are also four additional headlights mounted on top of the roof, just above the front windshield. This would help maximise the amount of front visibility for the driver during the night.
Long Yu could not suppress the big grin on his face as he ran his hand along the sides of the car.
Since he already examined the holographic model of the Black Shark using the system, Long Yu knew that the front and back doors swung in different directions.
When he tried to pull on the front door's handle, he realised it was locked. The next thing he knew, he heard a voice telling him to register his fingerprints by gripping the handle for ten seconds.
Hearing this, Long Yu complied and did as he was told, as he knew it was the car's voice control system.
Next, he was also required to have his retinas and face scanned, in order for the car to recognise him as the owner.
If the cameras detect any unauthorised person approaching the car, the door handles will automatically retract themselves to prevent any possible attempts of car theft.
After these two tasks were completed, Long Yu was finally allowed to enter the vehicle.
He once again gripped on the front door's handle. This time, he could feel a slight vibration from the handle, before the door immediately unlocked.
Compared to the exterior, the car's interior has a really luxurious and high-tech appearance.
The comfortable white car seats contrasted the rest of interior perfectly.
Moreover, the dashboard of the car has a futuristic look to it. There are multiple LCD screens, which shows surveillance recordings, vehicle condition analysis, etc.
Long Yu examined the controls and realised there were few switches which converts the rear into 'normal', 'luxury' and 'lockdown' modes.
Pressing the 'luxury mode' switch, Long Yu saw the changes happening to the backseats.
The back seats on the left and right side started to slide backwards and recline fully, forming two beds. As for the middle seat, it folded itself into a table with indented cupholders.
Long Yu felt extremely satisfied with his choice of vehicle. He chose the Black Shark not only because of its fully armoured protection, but also for its advanced anti-theft security.
He knew that in doomsday, it wasn't only gene devouring monsters that he needed to look out for, but also fellow humans.
In a world without rules and regulations holding them back, humans would do anything to survive, killing included. Long Yu understood this fact, and was thus, preparing himself to face these threats.
Suddenly, the smile on his face froze, slowly turning upside down.
'Right, I now have the vehicle and I can also easily fake my license, but I don't know how to drive!'
Long Yu had been so caught up in his preparations for threats, that he had totally forgotten about the skills required to carry them out.
He now has the vehicle and guns that are essential to survive doomsday. However, he does not have any experience in using them!
"System, any ideas?" Long Yu asked it in a hesitant tone.
To his surprise, the same holographic screen appeared in front of him. Except this time, the list written on it was different.
[Driving skill card] (Novice)
[Grants the user the driving skills of a novice driver. Applicable to all land vehicles]
[Exchange Price: 20,000 yuan]
[Driving skill card] (Amateur)
[Grants the user the driving skills of a amateur driver. Applicable to all land vehicles]
[Exchange Price: 100,000 yuan]
[Driving skill card] (Professional)
[Grants the user the driving skills of a professional driver. Applicable to all land vehicles]
[Exchange Price: 500,000 yuan]
[Driving skill card] (Master)
[Driving skill card] (God)
Long Yu was overjoyed when he found that it was possible for him to exchange for driving skills. This would instantly solve his dilemma, not to mention that, it would also be applicable to many kinds of vehicles.
After a few minutes of scrolling and reading through the list, Long Yu decided to exchange for the 'professional' level driving skill card.
He did not want his driving to be too shabby nor did he want it to be over the top.
Confirming his exchange for the driving skill level that he wanted, his currency was deducted, and a red card materialised in front of him.
As it hovered before him, Long Yu could see a silver image on the card, which looks like a steering wheel, with the word 'professional' written above it.
After being informed of its usage method by the system, he took the card in his hand and crushed it.
Once crushed, the card turned into countless light fragments, which then flew towards the area between his brows.
Long Yu felt a flood of information and images surging into his brain. Efficient manual shifting, handbrake turns, trail braking, drifting, etc. He felt as if he was watching a recording of himself executing various driving techniques.
It did not just stop with cars. Motorcycles, race cars, trucks, tanks, he was operating all types of land vehicles like a professional.
Once it ended, Long Yu could not help but laugh to himself. It was just too fun of an experience!
"Worth it! Totally worth the 500,000!" he said aloud.
Now that he was equipped with the skills to match the car, Long Yu decided to make a trip to the city.
