Honda is also proud to mention that its Odyssey engineers are owners of their creation themselves; so surely, there’s something more to expect than just a big capacity people mover.

SAMSUNG CSCThe Mustang GT Unlocks All the Mysteries of Fun

Nothing quite beats that badass feel of being in the driver’s seat of a modern day V8 hot rod. It’s a menacing experience in both looks and feel from its massive chassis, large diameter wheels, and of course, its thick-blooded V8 engine. Even its interior is decked out with rugged dials, flick switches and a deep color scheme to remind you of the power you possess when within. But despite its demonizing intimidation, the Mustang GT manages to pull off a dual-faced expression of both civilized driving and track aggression.
