    Frank Stephenson can be credited with designing some of the most iconic cars of modern times

    Upon numerous requests from purists and fans alike, he has now created a one-off mock-up of a car dubbed the 'Frankenstein' for GTA V

    According to Stephenson, game designers often mash up cars to come up with something unique in a bid to avoid getting sued by automakers

    While most game cars take inspiration from one or two models, Frank much further with Frankenstein, which drew inspiration from six of his most successful designs of all time

    You can also find a bit of the Mclaren P1 & 8C near the window line and the doors. You can't miss the Escort Cosworth style spoiler on the rear wind screen

    Frank began by designing the side profile, where you can clearly see the design bits from the aforemntioned care

    Next, he sketched out the car from the front 3/4 angle

    finally followed by the rear 3/4 angle, where you can see elements of the FXX. With that, the sketch was complete. It was now time to generate a 3D model of these sketckes

    The car is under virtual wraps right before is is revealed

    Behold, the Frankenstein is finally here

    The car is briefly seen driving around the streets at night, in a game setting

    It also looks and sounds rather epic, quite dramatic to be honest with the exhaust spitting flames

    After the short clip, Frank gives us an overview of the design. He begins with the face, where he has clearly borrowed elements of the MC12 with those pronounced strakes on the hood. The front bumper is unmistakably F430

    While the front end overall does look impressive, Frank wasn't so sure about the headlights, which he said might need some tweaking

    From the side, the car carries over the profile and length of the MC12, just based on its sheer length. The window and door area though have McLaren written all over them

    The rear does look rather busy with not one but two spoilers and that massive diffuser
  • Ex-Ferrari, McLaren, and Maserati Designer Creates the Best GTA V Car Ever Designed - gallery
    The FXX inspired rear certainly draws you in

    One angle from where you can really appreciate the car's proportions are from up top. The car gets gradually wider as you move from front to back

    Here's a closer look at that the Escort Cosworth inspired split spoiler

    They look exaggerated, but the sky is the limit with these kinds of renders

    It is the culmination of some of Frank's best work in one single car. While the car was designed for the game, it clearly does deserve to be conceived as a real car, or be it at least as a clay model
