Is a car only a transport mode? For some, it’s not. Tie yourself to the seat with the safety belt in the narrow cabin, grip the steering wheel and drive through a corner, listen to the roar of the engine and feel the ups and downs of the road. As the tires squeal and reach their grip limits, your heart beats and adrenaline rise sharply. Obviously, this is not for transport. When the Ford GT40 crossed the finish line in 1966, it’s the supreme masterpiece of the then automotive industry and it’s a speed machine built by metal and passion. Though we cannot go back to the day to witness the birth of this legend, we are still influenced and inspired by such passionate stories and breathtaking moments. This is not about rationality, because it’s our instinct to chase speed and limits.
