British Motor Museum to open a new ground-breaking
exhibition, “From Sketch to Street”

The British Motor Museum is set to unveil an innovative exhibition, ‘From Sketch to Street,’ opening to the public on 19th July and running through April 2025. This ground-breaking feature explores the artistic and engineering processes behind historic British car design while offering insights into the industry’s future potential.

‘From Sketch to Street’ will delve into the creative and technical journeys of iconic and pioneering vehicles from Britain’s automotive manufacturing past. The exhibition will focus on five key themes: interior design, exterior design, functional design, materials, and trim. Visitors will have the opportunity to unravel the processes and personalities behind these cars, as well as contemplate how their own design concepts could influence future innovations.

Highlighting the exhibition are original designers’ sketches, loaned artifacts from luxury car brands, and an eagerly anticipated modern clay model. Interactive displays will engage visitors in solving design challenges and considering their preferences in car design, offering a hands-on experience that bridges artistry and functionality.

Cat Boxall, Curator at the British Motor Museum, expressed enthusiasm: “We are thrilled to introduce this unique and ground-breaking exhibition to the Museum. It celebrates the rich heritage of car design while

showcasing the innovation and creativity driving the industry forward.

We look forward to our visitors joining us on this captivating journey and discovering the treasures of this new exhibition.”
