“The British Design Exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum highlights examples of great UK design from 1948 to the present, ranging from T-shirts to transport, from ad campaigns to cameras, and from fashion to phones.
The timeframe spans the two London Olympics, from the first post-war austerity games in 1948 – the same year as the X120 was unveiled at Earls Court – to the imminent 2012 event.
To mark the opening, C-, D- and E-type were on display outside the museum entrance while 9600 HP, the original Geneva show car, is on show inside.”
