The Car. You reading this probably have one, You probably have driven one, but have you actually driven? Have you ever driven a car and liked the act of driving? Think about that for a moment before going on. just think for a moment about the beauty of cars. clear your mind of your taxes, your homework, your life, your games, yoiur social life. Just clear your mind and think.
Whether you belive it or not, Automobiles are Art, They are feats of engineering, they are a expreesion of the soul. They are the best thing ever, and I strongly and firmly belive that. Just stop and think about that for a moment.

What do you see here?
you see a car interior, right?
and yet we see the interior of the Lexus SC430 Grand Touring Convertible and for the car enthusiasts what we see is way better than what you see, we know that everything in that car is personally tailored to you.
Notice the center console how it is keeping back and looking nice.
The Guages, Crisp and Sharp.
The Navigation, Percise and Accurate.
The Steering Wheel, Leather and Wood wrapped, Responsive and Tactile.
Everything is doing exactly like it was designed to be and that is a beauty all in its own.
Notice how this car, the Toyota Century's interior is quiet and reserved. Serine and beautiful
Notice in this advert the car is powerful and sharp and so so nice
The car is more complex then you think
Cars are complex for a number of reasons.
First, They are complex for your safety and security. The Top Safety Pick Plus, Lexus RC. You can see a the car strikes the barrier the airbags deploy and the area in front of the drivers door and A pillar crumple to absorb the energy of the crash, The Crumple Zone and the area after the A pillar and the door holds firm and causes the car to bounce back
Notice how the car keeps you safe.

Secondly, They are complex for tough engeneering and design challenges. In every single car the designers and engineers push the boundries in engeneering, design, performance, efficiency and safety.
Here I have made a couple of clips that show how automakers pour their heart and soul into their passion
Beacouse no matter what automaker you turn, They all have one thing in common. Their pasion with cars.
Here we can see the inspiration for some of the elements inside Toyota's Luxury Crossover the Toyota Venza, Mrs Erin Shreve has a Toyota Venza XLE.
This video shows Toyota's inspiration for design surfaces like the center stack, the seatbacks and the grille
I firmly believe that cars are like animals. Automakers have taught them to be safer and smarter and they have made them more refined and have, effectively, muzzled them with the mufflers. The Governors, which are speed limitation put on a car, The speed restrictions on the highways, the list goes on. The general public does not want a car that makes a great deal of noise or a car that is immensely powerful or even good looking. They just want to follow the herd. But one thing remains; put your foot hard down on any car and the true beast is revealed. The engine, snarling, growling, screaming towards the redline.The transmission slamming upshift or letting you slam them, jerking the car backward into a frenzy of getting more speed! The exhaust disregarding the mufflers and making a rage-filled, crazed hatred like noise. The tires squealing, screaming begging for mercy as they find grip and give you speed. As soon as you put the accelerator on any car fully down the he true automotive beauty comes out. The car says no to miles to the gallon. The car says no to being quiet and refined. The car says no to being muzzled and restrained. The car says no to being tame any longer and says yes to speed, power and noise. But as soon as you put your foot off the accelerator, it is tame.
Here we see the automaker Volkswagen showing their dedication to their reliability
Here we see a Caddilac Seville Touring Sedan or STS getting a workout
Here we see a Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ also getting a workout. mph above
Thirdly The car is complex to give it a leading edge over other automakers.
Caddilac wanted a safer Deville Touring Sedan or DTS so they made the first Ever night Vision system and made it project to the windshield
Cars are for getting you from place to place but they are so much more than that. They are a expression of one's self, they are a way to live.
"If you don't like driving, You have the wrong car and the wrong road" Colin Tang.
A car can be the best thing in the world, you just need to open your eyes and ears and feel.
When was the last time you went out for a true drive? Not to go somewhere not to do something, but actually go for a drive and think about things? I have yet to do so but I can't wait! When was the last time you looked at your car at close? Have you noticed how the car takes design up to a whole new level? The car is a form of art, When was the last time you looked at your wheel, your dashboard, your side, your car, as art?
Here is a commerceal showing how the automaker Jaguar shows committment towards their cars
