Are you a fan of McLaren vehicle models? Has the reinterpretation of the Mini as a larger sedan been a good thing for you? If you do, there’s a good chance you know Frank Stephenson, the man behind those things you love.
Considered the most influential automotive designer of the modern era, Stephenson has a very rich and iconic portfolio of car designs, which began in 1986 after graduating from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. .
His latest book celebrates this achievement in the form of a paperback coloring book, produced by Fireball Publishing and now available at Amazon for $ 9.99.
The official coloring book, which would be aimed at car enthusiasts of all ages, features 19 of Stephenson’s most popular car models. These cars include the Ferrari F430, the Maserati MC20 and the McLaren P1. It also comes with a special racing maze.
Additionally, Stephenson will also launch the Coloring Book Challenge, which invites buyers of the coloring book to show off their work on Instagram and tag #FrankStephensonChallenge on the social media post. Stephenson himself will pick his favorites, which he will then feature on his YouTube channel.
Speaking of Stephenson’s YouTube page, the original BMW X5 designer has a knack for posting interesting content online with the design of cars. He started the channel by explaining some of his iconic designs like the famous Ford Cosworth spoiler, which then evolved to share a review of modern cars (with a rating system). One of the latest was the Ferrari 296 GTB, which he thought was beautiful but could use some tweaking which he showed in his video.
It should be noted that Stephenson gave the retro-looking Honda E a perfect 10 in terms of design, with the Bugatti Bolide falling below the retro-looking EV with a score of 9.9.
Stephenson’s YouTube channel has approximately 163,000 subscribers at the time of writing.
