Barényi, Béla (Hirtenberg, Austria, 1 March 1907 - Stuttgart, Germany, 28 February 1997) – Engineer, pioneer of automobile safety. He completed his studies at the Viennese Technical School. He designed the famous Volkswagen Beetle passenger car in 1925. However, Porsche was later credited with the invention (1938). Barényi took legal action in 1955, and a German Court and the State Patent Office in Mannheim acknowledged that Barényi had invented the concept and the main components of the Volkswagen Beetle. From 1939 to 1974 he worked for Daimler-Benz, heading the planning department. Among his several inventions was the passive safety idea. Out of his 2500 inventions for the automobile industry, dividing cars into three collision zones was the most significant one (1951). The rigid passenger cell is enclosed by deformable front and rear ends (crumple zones) that absorb the impact of collision. Today, every automobile company in the world manufactures cars based on Barényi's design. Crash tests are also associated with his name. He retired in 1974. Barényi's inventions completely changed the world's automobile production. In recognition of his achievements he was admitted to the Automotive Hall of Fame in 1994. With his ideas he has saved the lives of millions on the roads. – B: 1279, T: 7103.
