For this image, that originates from a transparant (png) file we have chosen a Porche Carrera 911 convertible as the model for our decor. The car is placed on top of a very high phantasy building, obviously  constructed in a Gothic style architecture, looking out over a future world with a wide panorama, hence the title “a car with a view”.

To accentuate the importance of the car as the central object of the image, there’s a black and white tile floor played under it and shiny chrome barrier posts on both sides, with a red cord in between . What exactly the meaning is of the goat in this shiny ambiance is left to the viewers imagination.

The Bentley “s” series started in 1955. The car is exceptionally elegant inside and outside. The car looks also impressive which gives a royal aspect to it.

The 3rd generation of the model started in 1962, including the S3 and the Rolls-Royce Cloud III. This version is by far the most complete in terms of mechanic and aesthetics. The main changes are found in the engine in order to have a more powerful car. The car can speed up to 190km/h, which is amazing knowing the weight and the size of this

“SYMBOL OF THE BRITISH LUXURY”

Bentley, a prestigious car brand, was created the 18th of January 1919 by Walter Owen Bentley. He decided to set up his company in the North of London. The success was unbelievably fast. The name Bentley became an international symbol of luxury. The constructor became also well-known in the racing field by winning 5 times the 24h du Mans in the 20’s. But the financial crash in 1929 had many consequences to the brand, and it became hard to recover from it. In 1931, the brand is bought by Rolls Royce.

Atomium

Gold-plated atomium

This gold-plated Atomium seems to be surrounding the missing puzzle piece that is abundantly used as  the site icon for the LOVE4design website. The problem with this image is that it seems impossible to separate the Atomium from the missing puzzle piece, although each has its own separate layer.
