Howlin’: Select Vehicles from the Nearburg Collection

On display in the Nearburg Family Gallery

The first automobile race was held in France in 1895 on a 732-mile course from Paris to Bordeaux. Like most early races, this served more as a show of endurance than speed and helped prove that the automobile was a viable alternative to other modes of transportation. Since then, competitions have served to push the limits of automotive power and efficiency, yielding advances in safety, performance and comfort that could not have been achieved on a test track or in a research and development facility.
Racing not only provides a platform for manufacturers and drivers to compete for boasting rights, but also results in knowledge about what makes cars perform better. Such insights often find their way into production vehicles where they are used to improve our day-to-day motoring experience.

 

Open until January 2017
