World Car Awards hero Ian Callum reimagines the World Car Trophy


Back in 2019, the Jaguar I-Pace became the first car ever to score a hat-trick at the prestigious World Car Awards – and now its creator, Ian Callum CBE, is now set to redesign his three-time winner High on the famous trophy.

His consultancy Callum Design will work with 3D printing company Replique to redesign the traditional World Car Trophy.

The new trophy will retain the classic look of the original, but has been expertly recreated by the same iconic car designer who created the Aston Martin DB7, Ford Escort RS Cosworth ford pumaJaguar F-Pace and the Jaguar I-Pace in famous world car moments.

Ian said: “The World Car Awards are held in high regard by the industry, and as a winner I am grateful that the design team is proud to show what it means in the studio.”

“Reimagining design and manufacturing has been a great honor and an opportunity the Callum team relishes.”

Innovatively, they will be 3D printed using Replique’s advanced additive manufacturing technology. It’s a fast-moving process across the automotive industry and is now being warmly welcomed at the World Car Awards.

Henrike Wonneberger, co-founder of Replique, said: “We are proud to be selected as a manufacturer for this year’s World Car Awards and to be part of such an important event in the automotive industry.”

“This award is a great example of how 3D printing can enable flexible designs in small batches, fast and high quality.”
