Red Dot Design Award Honors Luxury Automobiles
Every year an international jury of experts assembles for the annual Red Dot design awards. Considered one of the most prestigious prizes in product design, awards are handed out each year to designs that stand out above the rest.
This year's list of award winners includes more than 1000 recipients – far too many to list here – divided between honorable mentions, the basic Red Dot award and the Best of the Best category for those truly exceptional designs. Among this year's recipients are a host of luxury automobiles, but only three won the venerable Best of the Best: the Rolls-Royce Ghost, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and the Peugeot RCZ. All three are luxury cars with very different design philosophies and body styles, but the good people at Red Dot evidently felt they each deserved special recognition.
