The exhibition brings together landmark road and racing cars, plus sketches and technical drawings, design models in various scales and media (including wooden master models and wind tunnel models) and such 'automobilia' as Enzo Ferrari's driving licence and the race helmets of famous F1 drivers for Scuderia Ferrari.

Under The Skin will allow attendees to follow the evolution of car design, not just through the final products but through the design and manufacturing techniques on display, such as the old wooden master models that were once used as a point of reference when hand-beating sheets of metal into body panels.
