Disclaimer: I am not a fan of luxury cars and I will never buy one even if I had all the money on earth. I think that they are the symbols of excessive indulgence (gas guzzlers) and hence they do not contribute to my vision of sustainable living. Every drop of Petrol/Diesel wasted by these cars can be used to power more efficient means of transportation. But I do hope these cars will run using solar energy, wind energy and hydro-power in the future.
That said, I should also say that I admire beautifully made things. Luxury cars are the best example of a beautiful synthesis between art and technology. It’s just that I hate beautiful things that contribute to pollution and global-warming. Why can’t beautiful things be clean and efficient? Is beauty an excuse for indulgence at the cost of everything else in this world?
While humanity ponders upon such larger questions, let us restrict ourselves to just enjoying beauty for a few moments 🙂 Here goes –
Mercedes E-Class Coupe
Which one is your favorite? Me, I would rather buy this car than any of the above models even if I am given two crores to spend on a car (is that enough to buy the costliest car among the above?). Never judge a book by its cover, never judge a ???? by ??? ????? and never judge a car by its design 🙂
