The Italians certainly disagreed, and so did the British, and the Swedish. So here I give you: The coolest doors to adorn the coolest cars.
The Countach was the first one to wear these doors. Oh, how we fell for it! (Like, duh) These were codenamed the scissor doors.(YES! That’s what it’s called). It did look like what aliens would spend their days that Planet NASA said they found. NO! Not that one. YEAH! That one. Thank You Galdini. This is what I love about the Italians. They can take such banal things and make us lust after them. All said and done, these doors are hopelessly impractical. Does it matter? Nah!We love ’em.
The British meanwhile had a different outlook. Not exactly a company with cool stuff. Except for their doors. No! Wait! Hear me out. Would you look at them? They are like normal doors with normal handles but the hinge is on the other side. Why We ask. Elegant Entry/Exit, says the British Marque. Yeah. Whatever. One please.(I mean two doors, obviously!)
Whatever Mercedes tells you, the gullwing doors are the only things that tie the 300SL from the past to the SLS-AMG of the present. Makes these cars look like they open up their arms to show us its armpit (eeew! Gross). It looks cool, doesn’t it? YES! Apollo and the Pagani Huayra borrowed it too.
Electric cars aren’t boring. Don’t believe me? Here’s a classic case in point. Welcome the Falcon Doors. What makes it even more amazing(if that’s even possible) is that it opens every time you walk towards it. AliBaba’s Life would have been a hell lot easier if Elon Musk was alive back then eh?
And the cherry on top of the cake is most definitely these. Perhaps the best. This is my favourite. It’s called the DIHEDRAL SYNCHRO-HELIX ACTUATED DOORS (Wait! You still there ?). Anyway, It opens upwards, outwards (duh) and forwards. That’s all the dimensions covered then.
So, there you go. The Next Time Someone asks you to SHUT THE DAMN DOOR, You ask them to SHUT THEIR FRONT DOOR! Kidding, Shut the Damn Door!
