Who Is the Greatest Non-Italian Automotive Designer?
One of the classic questions among car enthusiasts is, “Who is the greatest automotive designer of all time?” It’s certainly an important question and open to a great many answers, but the usual responses are fairly limited. Names like Pininfarina, Bertone, and Giugiaro get thrown around more often than not, and of course there’s a very good reason for that. The Italian design houses have made a lion’s share of beautiful cars over the years.
However, we here at Petrolicious want to change this question to the following: Who is the greatest non-Italian automotive designer?
In my opinion, this person is Malcolm Sayer, who spent his entire auto design career at the helm of Jaguar. Sayer’s work encompasses some of the most legendary, and most striking, automobiles ever to come from the British marque, including the C-Type and D-Type racers, the E-type, the stillborn XJ13, and the XJS.
