FRANK Stephenson, the man responsible for some of the most famous car designs of the 21st century, is auctioning off sketches of some of his iconic cars for charity.

The drawings are from his recently-launched YouTube series “How I Designed…”, in which he takes viewers through the design process of some of his most famous models, including the Mini Cooper, the Ferrari F430, the Maserati MC12 and the Fiat 500.

Stephenson pens the beautiful sketches in the videos using nothing more than a Biro and a sheet of A4 printer paper.

All the images from the series, which currently comprises six episodes, will go up for sale at the auction, as well as the sketch from an upcoming seventh (and final) episode, which focuses on one of Stephenson’s most dramatic designs: the McLaren P1.
