2005: Showcase of Selected Entrants

In the early years, the themes to Michelin Challenge Design focused on exploring and celebrating the unique style that each region brings to the automotive design industry. Through this program, participant designers celebrated the philosophy, heritage and excitement of German automotive design by entering designs that demonstrated the influence of German design, events, people and icons.

The jury selected 12 scale models and 28 renderings for the Michelin Challenge Design 2005 North American International Auto Show display. Participation from OEMs included several full-size vehicles: Opel Insignia Concept, Mercedes-Benz F500 Mind, and Volkswagen Concept R.”
