A unique McLaren 720S supercar designed by McLaren Operations (MSO) is on display at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show, which takes place November 14 – 18. An MSO Bespoke commission is the service from McLaren Special Operations that allows almost limitless enhancement and personalisation of McLaren cars.
The 720S is wrapped in Zenith Black paint with a satin finish. Gold-colored alloy wheels, a 24-carat gold engine heatshield and gold-coloured interior components complement the exterior color. To personalise the car added more than 120 hours to the production process.
A plaque inside the car identifies it as a ‘1 of 1’ MSO commission, a fact also communicated by the unique rear wing that bears part of a famous quote by McLaren founder, Bruce McLaren: ‘Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone’, is painted across the upper surface of the wing in gold Arabic lettering, stylised to echo the Dubai city skyline. The rear wing took 30 hours to complete, using stencils produced by the MSO design visualisation team to achieve the desired dramatic visual impact of the gold lettering.
In addition to the MSO Bespoke elements, the commission upgraded the lavish vehicle with carbon fibre packs that together encompass the front splitter and air intakes, rear bumper and roof panel. The rear diffuser is also a carbon fibre option, while the door mirror arms, rear aero bridge and deck and engine covers are all from the MSO Defined range of carbon fibre components.
Inside, black Alcantara and black leather trim are complemented by MSO Defined carbon fibre sill panels, fascia vents and steering wheel, in addition to a regular carbon fibre interior upgrade pack. The MSO Bespoke team added satin gold-painted extended gearshift paddles, a satin gold-colored centre band to the steering wheel and pinstriping in the same hue to the spokes. A gold-colured applique on each door inner completes the visual treatment.
The unique MSO Bespoke McLaren 720S is powered by a 4.0 V8 twin-turbocharged engine and capable of accelerating from 0 – 200km/h (0 – 124mph) in just 7.8 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 341km/h (212mph).
