Phoenix Art Museum's 'Legends Of Speed' Shows Off The Beauty Of High-Performance Cars

The Phoenix Art Museum is exhibiting 22 race cars that exemplify the marriage of form and function in automotive design.

" Legends of Speed" includes cars made by Mercedes, Alfa Romeo and Ford that feature shapes and lines that elicit as much of an emotional response as a surge of adrenaline — cars that are pieces of art as well as vehicles for competition.

Jim Contes, a retired automotive engineer and senior lecturer at ASU’s Polytechnic School, joined The Show to discuss the role of aesthetic design in automotive development.
