One-off McLaren 720S designed for collector
Purple patch for McLaren Special Operations division
A one-off McLaren 720S has been revealed ahead of its show debut this weekend. The bespoke supercar has been developed by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and is finished in a bright ‘Fux Fuchsia’ shade of paint.
The car was commissioned by McLaren enthusiast, entrepreneur and philanthropist Michael Fux. McLaren boss Mike Flewitt will present the unique 720S to its new owner this weekend at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California.
The paint colour was created for Mr Fux by Rolls-Royce but has been “subsequently redeveloped” by MSO. He retains exclusive rights to its use on any other McLaren vehicle.
MSO is available to all McLaren customers, and work ranges from small trim changes through to bespoke colours and even one-off body styling.
This particular customer commission features Fux Fuchsia paint detailing on the wheels and various interior trim parts finished in the same hue. The rest of the interior is trimmed in white leather.
The exhaust and window surrounds are from the firm’s off-the-shelf MSO Defined range, and can be ordered for any McLaren of any colour.
McLaren’s sales and marketing boss Jolyon Nash said: “MSO provides McLaren owners with virtually limitless possibilities to tailor a car exactly to their needs and tastes; unique paint colours and finishes, custom leather and stitching and exotic materials are all available within a bespoke commission, while beyond this there are opportunities all the way up to complete vehicles designed to individual specification.”
The Fux Fuchsia 720S joins Mr Fux’s existing McLaren collection, which consists of an orange McLaren 12C, a 12C Spider in bespoke purple, and a McLaren P1 in bespoke green.
