Among the other features at the show, to be held January 8-11, is an exhibit curated by James May of Top Gear, called The Car That Changed the World. That’s a topic that could ignite a lot of debate, since everyone has their favourites. Apparently there will be at least 13 cars in the exhibit, divided into two sections, dubbed by May as “The Hall of Obviousness” and “The Corridors of Bloody Mindedness.”

Says May, “The Hall of Obviousness is exactly that, significant cars that most people would expect to be on a list of cars that changed the world. The cars in the Corridors of Bloody Mindedness, on the other hand, are designed to make people think again.

“It’s amazing to think that the car has always been future proof – even the earliest cars, whether powered by petrol, steam or electricity, are still running today.

“Of course, all the cars on show are my choices and are just as likely to start an argument as end one. I’ve already had a complaint from someone that the Austin Seven hasn’t been included. It’s a point of view not without merit, but… tough.”

Among the obvious cars are the Model T, the Volkswagen Beetle, the Ford Mustang and the Toyota Prius. The cars in the other section are all pioneers in some way.

Sounds like each section has half-a-dozen cars, none of which is the world-changer. What is it? May’s not saying anything until the reveal on January 8. What’s your contender?
