One-off McLaren 720S revealed at Dubai motor show

One-off McLaren 720S revealed at Dubai motor show”

The Dubai Motor Show has a lot of glitz and gloss, so with nothing actually new to show McLaren is instead displaying a one-off customer commission 720S built by McLaren Special Operations (MSO).

A plaque inside the auto 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.

To personalise the auto added more than 120 hours to the production process.

As a nod to the legendary McLaren F1 of the 1990s, the engine heatshield has been lined in 24-carat gold, with the black leather interior lined with gold inserts to give it that extra Dubai touch.

Bruce McLaren's quote "Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone" is emblazoned on the rear spoiler of the auto in Arabic, stylised to resemble the Dubai skyline.

To create the desired visual impact of the gold lettering, custom stencils produced by the MSO design visualisation team had to be used. Other highlights of the exterior include the car's gold-painted alloy wheels and various carbon-fibre components like the rear diffuser, roof panel and front splitter, among others.

The lucky owner of the MSO Bespoke McLaren 720S will take delivery of the vehicle at the end of the Dubai Motor Show. A special "1 of 1" plaque is situated on the left side of the cabin beneath the steering wheel, declaring its exclusivity.

Inside it's black leather and Alcantara with carbon fibre sills, fascia and steering wheel as extras, satin gold gearshift paddles, centre band on the steering wheel and pin-striping. This means power of 710bhp from McLaren's turbocharged 4.0-litre V8, a top speed of 212mph and a 0-62mph time of 2.8sec.
