Sci-fi cars already here? Are there any cheap car models that have a head-up display (HUD)? How does HUD actually work?

Any time, Henri Tapani Heinonen,

I parked a car with an aircraft quality HUD in it about 1998

If I recall correctly the 'Vector' sports car that was first created about 15 years ago had a HUD. I think the company is now defunct but it cost about 250k$
