Design Psychology

The fundamental question is what is beautiful ? the CDN article "Are Beautiful Cars Really a Thing of the Past?"  does give a hint that it is all subjective and it is rather a Psychology topic rather than a technical one...

Out of these 100 cars, I can say with complete certainty that some Volvo Cars are more beautiful than approximately 80% of these already listed.
There's, of course, the P1800, the new XC90, V90, S90, XC60 and V40.
Personally, I love every Volvo Car, but those few are models which I know for a fact that many others adore too.
