It simply tries to understand the appeal of the car in its most likely habitat. And appeal it does, in a sense I personally find somewhat perplexing in this day and age of oversaturation.

There is still a sense of luxury in existence that manages to astonish. See for yourself whether you can find the point of something that one may consider tastefully excessive:
