Article by Christian A., on June 19, 2013

Salon Privé and the Royal College of Art have released exclusive designs that will become part of a new feature for this year, the ‘Concours of the Future’ exhibition. The ‘Concours of the Future’ will feature designs created by a group of undergraduate students at the RCA’s Vehicle Design program.

They are tasked to take a look back at some historic Concours-winning cars and re-design them for the modern world. The new work will be unveiled at Salon Privé on September 4, 2013. Judging of the 11 new designs will occur on September 5, 2013.

The judging panel for the ‘Concours of the Future’ will be lead by automotive designer and RCA visiting professor, Peter Stevens; head of the RCA Vehicle Design program, Dale Harrow; Director of Design at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd, Giles Taylor; Chief Design Officer at Hyundai and Kia Motors, Peter Schreyer; and Vice President of Design at Geely, Peter Horbury.

Stevens remarked that the RCA is proud to be working with Salon Privé on the ‘Concours of the Future’ project. He quipped that some of the results of the design exhibition are “astounding.” He remarked that the commitment of young RCA designers shows the strength of the exhibition and of Salon Privé in the world of auto shows.
