Previously, we made the case for the Volkswagen XL1 being a design that will forever be remembered even long after it's gone.

Now, Design Museum in London is making sure that happens.

The VW XL1 will be displayed there from now until the end of August alongside other Design of the Year award nominees.

The XL1 is the only automobile up for the Design of the Year honor. The XL1 falls into the transport design category.  Other categories include architecture, digital, fashion, furniture, graphic and product design.

The XL1 was nominated for the honor by Andrew Nahum, author of "Fifty Cars That Changed The World."

Klaus Bischoff is lead designer for the XL1, a limited production vehicle that boasts the highest fuel efficiency rating of any road-legal production vehicle.
