We've heard the styling of some Italian cars being referred to as sensual before, so it comes as little surprise that the Italian styling firm Pininfarina's interest was piqued when it heard that a young Indian's car designs were inspired by the ancient love-making guide Kama Sutra. Ramesh Gound, a student of the National Institute of design in India says, "When I thought of what the world associates with India, it is Kama Sutra that came to my mind. After studying Kama Sutra, I realized its essence and my theme emerged -- two objects coming together and moving in one direction with a force of passion." He adds, "the exteriors of the body curve and become part of the interiors of the car." Yeah... so it sounds like his studies into Kama Sutra proved useful. For all of his hard work, Gound was rewarded with an internship at the famous Italian design house.

      I wonder if this guy is going to end up at Tata motors...

      Designing the successor to the D type and E type Jaguars. Arguably two of the most sensual shapes formed from metal with four wheels.

      Somehow the E-type was both feminine and phallic at the same time, and strangely pulled it off very well.

      Maybe while at Pininfarina, he can do some leg work to get the Maserati birdcage concept built, another of the sexiest designs EVAR.

      Who else is reminded of those groovy panel vans back in the 70's with the matress in the back and crushed velvet everywhere?

      OK -- THE POWER SEATS WILL HAVE MORE FEATURES THAN ANY MERCEDES.

      Obviously, pink patent leather upholstery. Let's all take this as a reminder that, although many Indians speak perfect English, it IS a different culture from ours.
