McLaren Gets A New Design Director

McLaren has announced a new Design Director after former Design Director Frank Stephenson left the company, with rumours saying he returned back to Mini which he left in 2002.

The New Design Director Rob Melville is a familiar name with McLaren Fans as  he led the design of the 720S which is one of the most successful McLarens on sale today. Having joined McLaren in 2009 as a Senior Designer, Melville was promoted to Chief Designer in 2014. Before the promotion, Melville helped design cars in the Sports Series and second-generation Super range including the 650S, 675LT, 570S and the potent P1.

This new role means that Melville will be overseeing the designs of McLaren’s new LT sub-brand, an electric supercar and the P1’s future successor. 

“I am thrilled to be given the title of Design Director for McLaren Automotive. I remember when I got the call to come and join McLaren back in 2009 and the joy I felt then is the same today. We have developed a fantastic design team and have integrated a design philosophy that I feel passionately about. I have always believed that great design tells a great story and that is what we do here at McLaren. I’m incredibly proud.” said Melville.

Before joining McLaren, Melville worked for Jaguar Land Rover where his design sketches at Jaguar Land Rover were chosen for the LRX Concept which paved the way for the Evoque.
