is an attempt to relive the nostalgic moments of the past. Its a
tribute and retrospect to one of the greatest and the finest cars
mankind has ever seen. Autos Mobilis is the story of each and every
motor and the people behind it, the revolution it began, the
revolutionary breakthroughs it achieved, the wars and crisis it
survived and finally served man both in times of peace and
Seldom is any machine celebrated as much an Automobile. We have
entered new century, conquered moon, moved miles away from Opium
wars and religion and Automobile has transformed itself from a
temperamental toy to a transcontinental thing. Its the image
of modern times messy, confused yet complex. From Karl Benz's
Horseless carriage to Enzo's exotic street scratchers, Automobile
has come a long way. It represents the human psychology and
behavior, an extra limb that denotes its makers characteristic.
The Automobile supercharging the human behavior takes
him to the extremes to express speed, dynamism, aggression and
some times to his funeral.
JFK was killed in an Automobile and Automobile killed James Dean
.Art imitates life and life imitates art. Carra and Saverini chased
speed on canvas and Francis Picabia represented 'The child
Carburetor'. Da Vinci devised spring driven carts and imaged
horseless 'ghost' wagons. Hispono Suiza , Duesenburg and
Silver Ghost represent classic Edwardian beauty, a beauty
close to perfect..... in steel.
Verne was a visionary his protagonist boasted. "I have
undisputed power over the world with which nobody can resist me,
under any circumstance".
