French translation:technologie de pointe
Explanation:
It looks like one has to move away from a litteral translation on this one. I read it as meaning that the driver benefits from very advanced technology, and I propose this translation.

literal translation of wheel screeching .
However it does not make sense when we tie it with technology.
