Audi recently released a 13-page colouring book on its US website, each of which features a model from its product lineup of the present and past.

Mercedes too has released a colouring book which has different levels of difficulties. From Maybach to concept Vision AVTR, the book has all the favourite luxury machines that have defined the company around the world.

These may appear as rather inconsequential gestures in the current times of challenge but however small they may be, are definitely encouragements to stay at home and return to basics to keep safe.
