Daniel Simon


Daniel Simon is a visionaire in the field of advanced vehicle design.

He is currently Chief Design Officer at Roborace — the world’s first racing league for autonomous cars — and Design Deputy at Singer Vehicle Design — the boutique restoration house most well-known for its re-imaginations of the Porsche 911. Previously, Simon created lead vehicles for science fiction films such as Tron:Legacy, Oblivion, and Star Wars.

Growing up in a ship-building family on the coast of Germany, Simon later began his automotive creative journey at the Design Centre Europe of Volkswagen in Spain, and returned to Germany in 2005 where he became Senior Designer at Bugatti Automobiles. He resides in Los Angeles since 2008 and consults for a variety of transportation startups, as well as brands such as Audi, Nike, Formula E, and SpaceX.

Simon’s work delicately blurs the lines between past and present, as he believes that advanced products are more successful if they contain traces from an informed past. Besides such thoughtfulness, he also preserved the curiosity of his childhood — and relentlessly asks ‘what if?’ on the quest for better solutions.
