You can now own art from the Lead Designer of the P1 and 720S without buying a McLaren

Having helped shape automotive icons like the P1, 720S, and most recently the McLaren Artura, Paul Howse has returned to his roots and is now offering limited prints and original artworks in the Classic Driver Shop.

Automotive designers produce some of the most widely displayed artworks in the world. However, to many they remain relatively unknown, and often the only way to acquire their artwork is to walk away from a dealership holding the keys to a new ride. Thankfully, there is now an easier way, and it doesn’t involve freeing up a new parking space. 

After studying at Northumbria University, Paul Howse went on to complete his MA in Vehicle Design at the Royal College of Art in London before interning with Toyota Advanced Design in Tokyo. Then, in March 2009, he began his career at McLaren Automotive, where he would help to shape the design language of England’s most technically stunning supercars. Having been the Lead Designer on the exterior of the P1, P1 GTR, 720S exterior, and most recently Senior Design Manager on the cutting-edge Artura’s exterior, Paul has taken a step back and begun drawing cars for the sheer fun of it. 

Featuring everything from Ferguson tractors to Ferrari 250 SWBs, Paul’s artwork combines technical line drawing with masterfully applied watercolour, depicting even the freshest hypercars as timeless classics. We’re delighted to showcase his work in the Classic Driver Shop, where you can buy either signed limited-run prints, or one-off originals. Whichever you choose, you’ll be taking home a stunning piece from the designer of some of the most iconic cars on the road today.
