When a fast car is captured by an artist, it’s usually at 1,000 frames per second. We’re habituated to recognizing speed on film; rarely are we asked to acknowledge it on a canvas.

All of which makes the Royal Automobile Club’s Art of Motoring exhibition, on view now through Oct. 31 in London, a crash course of the most edifying kind. Have a click through some of the show’s highlights here.
