If you ever wondered how somebody ends up working for a big automaker, here is your answer. Bentley has organized a design competition named ``Bentleys of the Future`` in which 18 students of the Vehicle Design Course Masters at the Royal College of Art from London took part developing an entire range of futuristic concepts over the last couple of months. This is a special partnership that Bentley has with the world renowned Royal College of Art from London.
The winner and runner up of the competition will both be invited to join the British automaker in Crewe for a six month trial in the in the Bentley design studio. The competition ``Bentleys of the Future`` has currently entered its second phase in which only four contestants of the original 18 are left. Raul Pires, Head of Exterior Design at Bentley , along with his colleagues will help the four finalists to refine their designs.
None of the four Royal College of Art students finalists of the ``Bentleys of the Future`` competition is from England. Thus, Mikka Heikkinen, aged 26 from Finland, created a high performance Bentley. David Seesing, aged 26 from Germany, says that his proposal combines ``a radical design with impressive aerodynamics``. Marten Wallgreen, aged 27 from Sweden, came up with a futuristic version of the Bentley Continental GT . Last but not least, Bora Kim, aged 26 from South Korea, created a Bentley which allows owners of the vehicle to easily select their preferred engine for any type of journey.
I have to say that all four projects are very interesting and I must congratulate Bentley for organizing this kind of events. You can take a look for yourself at the four projects in the pictures below.
