past mid-engined eight cylinder cars and front-engined
twelve cylinder models. The students had complete freedom

different countries, and four top design schools, the
College for Creative Studies of Detroit, Coventry University
School of Art & Design, Istituto Europeo di Design
of Turin and Tokyo Communication Arts.
The students showed a panel of judges 1:4 scale models,
as well as a series of sketches and renderings detailing
the interior and the exterior of their concepts.
