Today we will talk about strange design of cars with which we fell in love. But people did not always like such strange look…
Volkswagen Type 2
Probably British ate their heart out when small pop-eyed vans and buses with a huge VW logo on the front of steel rapidly conquer the world. Immediately after the war, the British contemptuously refused export factory from Wolfsburg on account of reparations: the “cuttlefish” seemed absolutely hopeless – but only after a couple of years, “bugs” have already bought all over the world.
And then, in 1967, appeared “Volkswagen Type 2″ – the family of cargo and passenger vans.
These weird lights are similar to the frog’s eyes, are they?
Mini became a cult, non-class car. Beatles, Peter Ustinov, Charles Aznavour, Belmondo, Enzo Ferrari like riding on it. Even the Queen of England – Elizabeth II helped it in terms of advertising. In 1960, she’s got a ride on it at Windsor Park.
This car stands out from the many models for its quirky design. This sporty muscular “sturdy child” with broad “shoulders” and huge “eyes” really attracts regards.
The car had been promoted under the slogan “See Mercedes with New Eyes”, which can be interpreted in two ways: either the “look at” Mercedes “in a new way”, or “See the” Mercedes “with new eyes.” Indeed, the first round headlights become the hallmark of the machine.
