Automobiles marketing is a lot down to stunts pulled off in traditional auto shows like in Frankfurt, New York and Tokyo. Auto companies are always in tough competition in these big markets and face cut throat competition every year, and they are under pressure to pull off some creative stuff every time. A recent trend started by some leading automakers include half-cut autos that can showcase both the inside and outside of a car with a great visual insight. It shows us what intricate geometries, mechanisms and designs lie on the inside of a shiny car. It also allows the visitors to get a more focused look inside the engine.
