A patent print poster of a McLaren M16 Racing Car designed by Gordon Leonard Coppuck. The patent was issued by the United States Patent Office on March 20, 1973. The M16 (or M16A as later versions caused it to be known) borrowed its wedge shape from the Lotus 72 which had proved so successful in Grand Prix racing in 1970, taking Jochen Rindt to a posthumous World Championship title. Coppuck felt that the 72’s sleek lines would be ideal for Indycar racing, although the M16 was very much a McLaren design.

WHAT MAKES OUR PATENT PRINTS DIFFERENT
You won't find any Patent Art like these. I carefully select each patent for its historical and artistic value. Often, various sections of the patent document are assembled into one beautiful print. I also painstakingly remove most imperfections and flaws in the original document and do extensive digital restoration while maintaining the integrity of the original patent. This will make the print crisp and clear - almost like the day it was filed. I don't use regular printers and paper to print this art. Instead, I use a high end lab and the prints are made on professional photo printers using high quality a archival inks and acid-free archival Lustre paper. Lustre is a premium finish on a heavier paper and offers the vibrant colors of glossy with the fingerprint-resistant finish of matte. This avoids glare on the print.
