Of course many modern vehicles are very similar (thanks to wind tunnels?), so the struggle to be different is demanding: odd shaped headlights and taillights, quirky grills, strings of LED lights (the mascara of current headlights) etc.

I'm afraid we've entered a decadent period of auto design, when cars are marred with bizarre rococo details reminiscent of overly-made-up tarts. I see a parallel with the fashionable but grotesque tattoos with which many people today vandalize the essential beauty of the human form.
