McLaren Automotive design director Frank Stephenson was honored last weekend at the 80th anniversary of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
Stephenson is a 1986 graduate of the school, and he received the Creative Spirit Award. The McLaren MP4-12C supercar was also on display at the festivities.
Stephenson gave the keynote address on Sunday as the culmination of the celebration, called the Art Center Car Classic.
Stephenson became styling director at McLaren Automotive in 2008 after working for Fiat and BMW. He fine-tuned the design of the MP4-12C, which launches next summer.
