Giving a "face" to speed

I like the way LEDs have enabled designers to give a "face" to some of these vehicles. The Lamborghini Huracan is a great example of that. The LEDs give it a little bit of a sinister look. Every 200-mph car should have a face.

I agree, except that last car is ugly and the LED lights do not help it at all! But being called the Ghost II is probably an indicator of its fate.

Good point, ChriSharek and Looney128. The Tesla Model S is a glaring omission.

I see what you mean, GTOLover. I'm sure that Rolls-Royce knows their owners' preferences. Maybe it just looks ugly to the rest of us.

Pretty cars.... BUT...
William K.   3/14/2014 7:28:26 PM
This certainly is a collection of pretty cars with quite high performance abilities, no doubt about that! But very far from my reality, for certain. The communities around hear would probably give them all speeding tickets even if they were parked. And while they are undoubtedly fantasic examples of great engineering, maintaining them would probably be a challenge. 

So seeing this lineup is a bit like seeing some other guy's beautiful wife: Nice to see, end of story. But thanks for the nice collection of pictures.

You ignorant idiot (is that redundant?). The tesla is 100k and performs similar to these exotics.....
