5 of the best British designs – Routemaster Bus
Okay, it isn't something you can go out and buy – but the new "Boris bus" has all the hallmarks of a British design classic. The new Routemaster – which finally hit the streets of London this week – is a futuristic update on the classic Routemaster design, with the traditional hop on, hop off rear platform.
Modern updates include diesel-electric hybrid tech and a "T-Loop" system that brings announcements to hearing aids. The sweeping windows are pretty cool too.
