Aston Martin Creates New Space in the SUV Market

Wow.

Was Niander Wallace driven around in Aston Martin’s futuristic SUV featured below in ‘Blade Runner 2049’?

Once again, cars are increasingly evolving as the next supercomputer.

The Lagonda’s elegant exterior is an eye-catching vision until the doors open to an interior that is equally stylish and technologically innovative. Perhaps the most surprising element inside this SUV is the gracious spacing for the four total seats in two rows.

On this note, is British car maker Aston Martin remodeling the modern SUV or sedan? The Lagonda SUV is reminiscent of the expensive Maybach sedan interior. With all sorts of money and time being thrown at creating driver-less cars, the next battle between car manufacturers will be designing for either convenience or utility.

Doesn’t the “u” in SUV stand for utility? It’s clear that Aston Martin is challenging the shelf life of this acronym.

The Lagonda is the epitome of luxury and should be viewed as a mere prototype for general design and limited offerings, like its silk-stitching, cashmere, and state-of-the-art computer infrastructure via “the key.” Considering this, the current specifications for this SUV are largely irrelevant. Any of us could make or design something this grand with all the money and resources of Aston Martin. The exciting part, and why this reveal is noteworthy, is because the Lagonda may very well prove to be the template for cars 10-15 years down the road.

The curve of innovation is slow but steady. It’s one of the great, continuous victories of capitalism. And Aston Martin is firmly planting a new flag on this ever-evolving line by presenting an ambitious–albeit unrealistic for anyone not named James Bond–car of the future.

“A dream will not become an innovation if there is no realization.”
–Ciputra, an Indonesian billionaire businessman 

What comes after realization?

According to Aston Martin, ladies and gentlemen, it doesn’t involve starting an internal combustion engine.

Happy Monday!

Mondays are not fun. That’s just the way it is. It picked the short straw. However, despite its lifelong misfortune and frustrating, unreversible reputation, there are always opportunities to find something good on this day.

This discovery just might include a random card filled with good wishes of positivity from a certain kind of wonderful mom.

The source of this discovery may come from famed actor Will Smith, who is relentlessly positive. He is relentlessly positive about inspiring perfect strangers (beyond Larry Appleton & Balki) and he is relentlessly determined about…

That’s why Will Smith is forever known as the fresh prince.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. changed the way generations of Americans dream. And as millions of us honor Dr. King’s powerful legacy of peace today, his civil rights message defined by the words “I have a dream…” will continue to inspire the many generations to come. When faced with troubles, personal and societal, Dr. King is a popular reference in finding the motivation to succeed.

Exhibit A I Have a Dream:

Martin Luther King Jr.’s life tragically ended far too soon at age 39. However, we can take solace in knowing his legacy lives on.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

An Old School Story

Will Ferrell with a tiger face painted on is enough to get anyone’s attention.

But wait! If you keep watching and reading, there’s more!

Off the wall and goofy? Yes. Funny and entertaining? Yes.

But inspiring? Also yes.

I, like you, am still hoping that Will Ferrell will pull a similar prank at a Home Depot…on a Saturday, of course. And, if there’s time, he’d venture over to a nearby store.

Rest assured, if his professor friend is with him, then there would definitely be time for Bed, Bath & Beyond.
