McLaren’s known to make some beautiful cars but here’s a look at the work done for one of their most iconic supercars,the McLaren F1. In this video, Mark Roberts, Design Operations Manager for the automaker, recalls his first project there. He was commissioned with illustrating the McLaren F1 Owner’s Manual and the approach and detail is like nothing we’ve seen from most handbooks. Roberts previously worked at Lotus as a technical illustrator so these hand-drawn illustrations are really what he enjoyed doing. The McLaren F1 sits in a very elite class and so it’s only right that the owner’s manual be as memorable as well. Pencil work is seen throughout with no detail spared. Check out the video below.
