Houses with Horsepower

"Life is too short to drive boring cars."

- Hanan Sobati, founder of Arabian Gazelles, the first female supercar club in the world.

"I only purchase and drive cars that represent thoughtful design, elegance and performance."

- Frank Lloyd Wright.

This book about beautifully designed cars and international architecture has been curated with an eye for pure aesthetics. Although architecture and cars are theoretically miles apart, the sources of inspiration for their designers are often strikingly similar. Recalling a time when you could recognise an architect from his Saab or his Citroen DS, lifestyle journalist Thijs Demeulemeester shows that architects and luxury car makers are alike in their appreciation of elegance of design, attention to materials, and solid construction. This book takes you on a trip through some iconic houses and the unique cars that match them.
