So how do we see the “luxury” in our vehicles today?
We have gone through the significant improvement of the automotive as the worldwide mass production enables to obtain its high performance. However, this gradually took away the individuality of the vehicles from the owners.
The craftsmanship plays the major role in creating the brand value of the automotive by sustaining the individuality with the highly detailed attention with the respect to the luxury. This polished craftsmanship is crystalized with individuality and highly detailed craftsmanship.
