The students will compete for just 11 spots in this year’s showcase, with the overall winner invited to travel to Milan for a lesson in design with Andrea Zagato at the Zagato Design Studio.

RCA’s visiting professor, and automotive designer, Peter Stevens, said he was astounded by the results from the students.

“The commitment of this eminent group of designers shows the strength of the new exhibition, as well as Salon Prive in the world of automotive shows".
