These Are Some of the Most Notable Car Designers in the History
Apart from engineers, car designers also have large contributions to the skyrocketing sales of a company. If not for these creative minds, the public wouldn’t see such sleek and attention-grabbing masterpieces that feature high specifications.
Throughout history, there have been many car designers that truly made a mark in the car designing industry. Here are a few of them:
Luxury vehicle brand Jaguar has to thank notable designer Ian Callum for its impressive car transformations. The genius is said to be the mastermind behind the highly celebrated deviation of the brand’s style from traditional, showing his styling prowess in the company with the 2006 XK Coupe.
Jaguar’s XJ, XF, F-Pace, as well as the F-type sports car got a modern makeover, care of Ian. He also designed the hypercar C-X75 concept, which, unfortunately, didn’t reach the production stage.
Ian’s expertise also surfaced when he designed the Escort Cosworth and Ford RS200. But his most impressive works are the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish, which thrust him to international recognition.
To say that Marcello Gandini is a stalwart in the car designing industry is an understatement. He designed the Lamborghini Miura during the day but didn’t stop there.
Marcello showcased his skills yet again when he designed the Lamborghini Countach, which became one of the standards of sports cars. He also has styled vehicles for the mass with the BMW 5 Series.
He was also in charge of the overall look of the Citroen BX, which has his signature square-off rear wheel arch. Marcello is undoubtedly one of the most talented car designers of his time.
No-nonsense personality Peter Horbury first started his designing career at Chrysler UK before joining Volvo to create the 480ES coupe. Then, he worked at Ford and styled the Sierra.
In the early 1990s, Peter got back to Volvo to help the brand shift from its brick-looking trademark. He designed the 850 and ECC Concept. The style further evolved into something rounder as seen in the S60, V70, and S80 units.
This Italian genius certainly has the creativity flowing 24/7. Giorgetto Giugiaro has endowed his artistic flair to almost everything — from cameras to trains, tractors, cameras, watches and guns!
However, Giorgetto’s most astonishing designs can be seen in the world of cars. Specifically, he became well-known after styling the Alfa Romeo’s 105 and the De Tomaso Mangusta.
But what really shot him to unfathomable worldwide recognition was his work on the Volkswagen Golf Mk1.
