Whether it's a full-blooded race car, bakkie or high-strung luxury exotic, each vehicle that comes off the production line follows a unique design cue.
Everything from the headlights, bonnet and front bumper are shaped accordingly to give the front of the car a distinct appearance.

The rear of any modern vehicle follows a relatively simple concept, with the shape of the rear lights and exhaust layout the most common changes - the Lexus LFA and VW Golf VI R are just a few examples of this.
These days, most modern cars come standard with LED daytime running lights, which adds a bit more sophistication and appeal, especially at night.
Normal passenger cars generally have 'softer' front-ends while the more A-list offerings follow a stricter yet aggressive design. Manufacturers can't have an M or AMG model looking tame, so everything has to be aggressive.
