Frank Stephenson explains how he designed the Maserati MC12

The Maserati MC12 is a car that is rarely spoken about when talking about the greats of that era – Porsche Carrera GT and the Ferrari Enzo, which the MC12 is in fact based upon.

The MC12 was built to signal Maserati’s return to motor racing after 37 years. Borrowing the Enzo chassis and drivetrain, Frank Stephenson created a completely different car; longer, wider, taller with sharper nose and smoother curves. But why not have Frank, explain it in his relaxed demeanour in his YouTube series, “How I designed…”

Frank Stephenson‘s back catalogue is incredible – McLaren 675LT, BMW X5, BMW Mini, Ford Escort Cosworth, Fiat 500 and many others. His series is one that not only explains the design and some background into his thought process, but it is great to see him actually take pen to paper and sketch those designs we know and love.
