Best Car Designers In The World

J Mays
J Mays, just retired after a 33-year career in the automotive design industry — a career that included prominent stints at BMW, Volkswagen, and Audi before landing at the Dearborn, Michigan-based car company in 1997. Volkswagen’s Concept One — the design study that ultimately led to the Beetle’s return — vaulted him to the elite ranks of a tight-knit business dominated by big personalities. It also set him up to take the creative reins at Ford, where he led the staff that produced a revitalized Mustang and classics like the GT supercar.
