Cars: Accelerating the Modern World

As we approach another major turning point in automotive design, this exhibition looked at the role of the car in shaping the world we live in today.

Over its short 130-year history, the car has become one of the most loved, contested and influential innovations in the world. It has revolutionised manufacturing, transformed how we move, forever changing our cities, environment and economies.

This exhibition is now closed at V&A South Kensington
