One-off satin black and gold McLaren 720S debuts in Dubai

One-off Mc Laren 720S revealed at Dubai motor show

One-off Mc Laren 720S revealed at Dubai motor show

The 2017 Dubai Motor Show is in full swing, and McLaren has chosen this opportunity to unveil the latest creation from its bespoke division, MSO (McLaren Special Operations). Now McLaren MSO has revealed the first pictures of the auto ahead of its public outing at the 2017 Dubai motor show.

The auto is inspired by one of Bruce McLaren's famous quotes: 'To do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better can not be foolhardy.

The product of the MSO Bespoke programme, which allows customers "almost limitless" customisation options, the 720S is finished in satin black paint with gold-coloured wheels, with matching interior trim.

Satin gold-painted elements include the extended gearshift paddles, center band to the steering wheel, the spokes, and the door trim. Carbonfibre dominates the driving environment, adorning the centre console, the steering wheel and folding display behind it. It would be a waste of life to do nothing with one's ability, for I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone'. As confirmation that this particular 720S configuration won't be repeated, the sill has been branded with a plaque displaying the make, model and a build number showing the auto is "one of one". McLaren adds that more than 120 hours were required for the personalization process, with the rear wing alone requiring 30 hours to finish. So the front splitter, air intakes, rear bumper and roof panel are just some of the body parts formed by the lightweight material.

No change to the mechanicals, with the 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 continuing to serve up 720 PS at 7,500 rpm and 770 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm.

McLaren is present at the Dubai International Motor Show with a spectacular one-off 720S commissioned by a customer from the Middle East.
