BY NARGESS SHAHMANESH BANKS
Frank Stephenson designed the evocative Ferrari FXX and the McLaren P1 hypercar. He shaped what the MINI should be under BMW ownership. He re-imagined the Fiat 500 Italian icon for modern life. In a career spanning over 30 years, Stephenson has led design teams at Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, Mini and McLaren. His next mission is to create the world’s first completely electric, vertical take-off and landing aircraft – the Lilium Jet.
