A thing can be beautiful regardless of it's function. Case in point this car I saw today
I don't know how it 'handles' how many horses are under it's rear bonnet , how much a pint of gas costs to go into it or what it's like on the motorway. And frankly I don't care. I think it looks lovely. I am not what some people refer to themselves as, a 'petrol head' so i haven't the faintest idea about it's pros and cons as a means of transport.
All i know is that it's a Porsche probably designed by one of Hitler's mates and it stands out amid the metal boxes that trundle along London's by ways.
another nice car
