Race Cars Showcase – Let the Speed Rule

The burning mixture of power and style – this is how a race car looks like. Let the true religious people forgive us and treat the following statement as an allegoric figure of speech, and nothing more, but the truth is that for many people racing is really something like a religion, where speed is god and race cars are icons. Today we want to show our readers a gallery of such icons of style, power, and speed – the race cars, which have become legends of the racing sport, setting up new world records and demonstrating the level of perfection, which can only be reached when the genius of engineering joins the passion about style.

BMW, Porsche, Subaru, Mustang, and Alfa Romeo – these names are recognized worldwide as the synonyms of not only speed and power, but also of the highest level of style and particular esthetics vehicles possess. But this showcase is not only about grand premium brands of race cars; sometimes even a small car may have huge ambitions. Below you will see retro race cars and even those vehicles which were born to be durable but pretty dull workers, helping people travel in between home, work, and supermarket, but later decided to try themselves in conquering the sands of deserts, guile of mountains, or impregnability of wild forests. They say some vehicles are born to become legends, but others simply become ones even without such primary predestination. In the gallery below you will meet both types of race cars – legends of the automobile design.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
