London, 12 November – Frank Stephenson Design is today delighted to announce that Frank Stephenson is to be inducted into the AUTOBEST Group’s DESIGNBEST Hall of Fame, with Frank being formally enrolled at the annual AUTOBEST Awards Gala to be held in 2021.


Formed in 2002, the DESIGNBEST Hall of Fame has been at the forefront of rewarding designers who have created a lasting impact throughout their career, with one designer inducted every year. Some of the most iconic automotive designers over the past few decades have been recognised for their work, with the likes of Ian Callum MBE, Mark Reichman, Henrik Fisker and Gerry McGovern OBE having previously received the illustrious accolade.

AUTOBEST’s jury recognised Frank’s enduring and timeless designs spanning three decades and included notable vehicles like Maserati MC12, McLaren P1, McLaren 720S, Ferrari F430 and MINI. The judging panel lauded Frank’s unwavering effort to offer new design and technology solutions on an international scale to a developing world, securing his place in automotive history.

On being inducted into the DESIGNBEST Hall of Fame, Frank Stephenson added: “It’s a great honour to have been chosen as the latest inductee into the DESIGNBEST Hall of Fame, joining some of the best designers from across the automotive industry. My career over the last 30 years has taken me through some of the world’s most recognised brands, from Ford, BMW, MINI, Ferrari, Maserati, Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo to McLaren, and this accolade feels like a true vindication of my past designs and spurs me on with my new projects.”

Dan Vardie, AUTOBEST Chairman and Founder, added: “Frank Stephenson is a fascinating person and an immensely talented designer. He is the author of some of the most iconic cars of our time. Our DESIGNBEST Hall of Fame is dedicated to brilliant car designers who made a crucial contribution to the cars we have around the world.
