PostHeaderIcon The McLaren 720S Goes Flamboyantly Purple as a One-Off at Pebble Beach

What happens when you cram thousands of wealthy people, heaps of amazing cars, and enough events to cover a whole week together? You get the greatest week of the year: the Monterey Car Week. You never know what you’re going to see. With auctions from names like Russo & Steele, Mecum, Gooding & Co., and RM Sotheby’s, there’s a massive guest list that includes some of the greatest cars ever built. But, over at Pebble Beach, things take a completely different turn, with this year bringing cars like the BMW Concept Z4 and Infiniti Prototype 9 into the mix with all of the classic cars. Meanwhile, McLaren has to make its own splash, and it’s doing so this year with a special one-off version of the 720S painted in one of the loudest and intriguing shades of purple that you’ll probably ever see on something with wheels.

The car in question was built by McLaren Special Operations to the exact specifications requested by Michael Fux. If the name doesn’t sound familiar, he’s owned a number of collector cars that include a some special McLaren one-offs like a 12C in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spider in yet another shade of purple, and even a McLaren P1 with an exclusive color of green that has only be used on that specific vehicle. Unlike some McLaren one-offs, this beauty features a bespoke paint color called “Fux Fuchsia” that was developed specifically for Fux by Rolls-Royce and then redeveloped for its application on the 720S by McLaren. So, with that in mind, don’t expect to get your hands on it, as our man Fux owns the exclusive rights to this specific hue – if that’s not exclusive, I don’t know what is. Keep reading to learn about what Mr. Fux requested from McLaren SVO.

Updated 08/21/2017: We added a series of new images taken during the sport car’s presentation at the 2017 Monterey Car Week.

PostHeaderIcon Michael Fux Gets Purple McLaren 720S MSO

McLaren_FUX_720s_077

American entrepreneur and car collector Michael Fux has ordered a new McLaren and he’s come to the 2017 Pebble Beach to show it off. It’s a purple McLaren 720S MSO, a truly one-of-a-kind car with Fux Fuchsia one-off paintjob and white leather interior, and it’s a little bit of an oddball like its owner. 

I guess ‘tacky’ is the word one would use to describe the color combo on this car, but these things are subjective. And even if it really is terrible and uncool, it doesn’t really matter because it’s the millionaire who orders the car has the final say, and if Mr. Fux believes that is a nice color and that it works with white interior, that’s the way it’s going to be. Heck, he could have this 720 smeared with baby poop if he wanted to, and McLaren Special Operations would do it for him.

Other highlights of Fux’s purple McLaren 720S MSO, besides the paint job, include fuchsia accents on the wheels, door appliqués, a pinstripe on the steering wheel and rear-view mirror are all in body color, MSO Bespoke white leather with white stitching, white Alcantara floor mats with white stitching, exhaust and window surrounds in Stealth grey finish and carbon fibre components from the MSO Defined range.

PostHeaderIcon The Wait To Order A McLAren 720S Just Got A Lot Longer

Like every supercar that arrives amidst hype and expectation, the demand for the McLaren 720S was always going to be high. Still, the reception surrounding the new crown jewel of McLaren’s Super Series is reaching heights that very few McLaren before it have been able to do it. It’s now being reported that all examples of the 720S through 2018 are sold out. Gone. Better luck next year.

This revelation may be surprising on the surface, but it really isn’t, even when you take into account the fact that the 720S only made its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. This is the nature of the supercar industry now though. Even the most expensive of machines sell out faster than ice cream on a hot August day, and as it turns, that’s exactly the case with the McLaren 720S. All in all, over 1,500 orders of the McLaren 720S have been placed with many of these buyers ordering two models of the supercar, one to use and another to send to McLaren Special Operations for some personalization work. Displays of wealth notwithstanding, buyers who missed out on taking delivery for the 720S on or before 2018 will still get a chance to buy one, either through McLaren or the secondary market. Those who opt for the former will have to wait a lot longer than they intended, but at least they could still get their hands on a 720S at a much friendlier price compared to going to the streets where they can get to own one sooner, albeit at a price that isn’t as forgiving to the wallet as what McLaren’s asking for it.

PostHeaderIcon Up Close with McLaren 720S

720s-beauty-shot

The new McLaren Super Series, the 2018 McLaren 720S, was unveiled to much fanfare at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. The car is now gearing up for its market launch which means it is being dispatched to McLaren dealership across the world so that customers can get to know it better. 

One of the first places they sent the new McLaren 720S was the Newport Beach showroom which holds the record for shifting the greatest numbers of McLarens. They in turn took the British supercar to its second American public appearance, after Amelia Island Concourse, at Cars and Coffee San Celemente:

Just to recap, McLaren 720S come with a twin-turbocharged V8 4.0 liter engine with 720PS and 770Nm of torque. Performance-wise, standstill to 100km/h (62mph) takes less than 3 seconds and just 5 seconds later the car has passed the 200km/h (124mph) mark on its way to a maximum speed of 341km/h (212mph). Braking is equally impressive, the new 720S coming to a halt from 200km/h (124mph) in just 4.6 seconds, covering 117m. Additionally, the extreme efficiency of the engine also goes beyond mere velocity: the new McLaren 720S delivers 10.7 litres/km combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions of just 249g/km in the New European Driving Cycle.

The new Super Series is also a lot more fun to drive hard than its predecessor thanks to cleverer electronics and a nicer exhaust sound. Here’s the 720S showing off its drift mode:

PostHeaderIcon You Can Build your Dream McLaren 720S Now

The brand-new McLaren 720S, which was just unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, has now received its very own configurator on the company’s website. Yup, it’s time to create your dream supercar!

The configuration begins by selecting the trim. The 720S is available in three versions, with the Luxury and Performance trims receiving additional equipment. As soon as you pick the model, the configurator takes you to the exterior color section. And it really becomes interesting, as the 720S is available in no fewer than 34 colors.

Only five are standard, no-cost paints, including white, blue, silver, McLaren Orange, and Storm Grey. There are seven more hues in the “Special” category, including Aurora Blue, Memphis Red, and Quartz, and eight in the “Elite” class. This one includes a few spectacular choices like Volcaco Yellow, Solis, Azores, and Bourbon. Finally, there’s the “MSO Defined” category with 14 choices, including Papaya Spark, Burton Blue, Polaris BlueLantana Purple, Fistral Blue, and Mauvine Blue.

Next up, you have to pick a set of wheels. Choices include five-twin-spoke sport cast, five-twin-spoke lightweight, and ten-spoke super-lightweight. The base rims are available in either silver or stealth finishes, while the lightweights come in either platinum, titanium liquid metal, or satin diamond cut. The ten-spoke wheels are offered in similar finishes. For calipers, you can pick between eight colors with silver McLaren logo. Pirelli P Zero is the standard choice for tires, but track-ready Corsa rubber is optional.

Other exterior options include a host of carbon-fiber upgrades. You can have several body components in this lightweight material, including the side mirrors, headlamps housings, splitter, front bonnet, engine hood, and diffuser. The same goes for the interior, where you can add carbon-fiber seats and components all around. The only drawback is that the trim is either black or black and Scoria Grey, but you can add a dash of color by selecting orange seat belts. However, MSO will be happy to “paint” the cockpit in any color you want for an extra fee.

When it comes to entertainment, you can pick between the standard four-speaker audio system or the optional, 12-speaker, Bowers & Wilkins unit. The McLaren Telemetry is also available with laptime function and three cameras. There’s a lot to add to the car when it comes to safety too. Options include 360-degree park assist, front & rear parking sensors, rear-view camera, a volumetric alarm upgrade, and a vehicle tracking system. Finally, there’s all sorts of practical things like a car cover, floor mats, fire extinguisher, an ashtray, and a lithium-ion battery charger.

Unfortunately, there’s no pricing for each of these items, so you’ll have to contact a dealer to get a sticker. But I guess it doesn’t matter much when you’re like me, and can’t afford one. Anyway, my dream 720S is finished in Lantana Purple, sports ten-spoke wheels in satin diamond cut and yellow brake calipers, and every carbon-fiber option but the front bonnet. Post your choice and design in the comments section below .

PostHeaderIcon McLaren 720S Velocity

McLaren’s double dose of debuts came as a surprise when the highly anticipated arrival of the 720S supercar was shortly followed by the introduction of the 720S Velocity, a bespoke creation by McLaren Special Operations meant to showcase the enormous personalization opportunities that are on the horizon for the British automaker’s next great wonder machine.

The arrival of the 720S marked the next step in the evolution of McLaren’s Super Series, a family of supercars that sprouted from the seeds of automotive engineering with the debut of the MP4-12C back in 2011. Since then, the Super Series family has grown to include the 650S, the 675LT, and the 650S GT3. The 720S serves as the replacement for the 650S after the latter’s three-year run in the market and just as appealing as that car was with MSO’s involvement with the 720S proving to be just as enthralling under the carefully thought of eye of the personalization division.

The 720S Velocity is unlikely to be the only 720S model that MSO will be working on in its life span. More versions will come, either through future owners of the new supercar or through McLaren itself. But the 720S Velocity accomplishes something that shouldn’t go understated. It’s setting the bar incredibly high for future 720S models that will pass through MSO. It’s combination of exclusive exterior colors and finely tailored interiors all make for a car that brings out a unique personality to the 720S, which of course is what MSO is all about in the first place.

It won’t come cheap by any means, but that comes with the territory of having MSO work on a car that by itself will cost just under $300,000 when it becomes available in the U.S. Yes, the price of personalization doesn’t come cheap. But if the car ends up looking like the 720S Velocity, money becomes a small price to pay for the rewards that come after.

Continue after the jump to read more about the McLaren 720S Velocity.


PostHeaderIcon McLaren 720S Velocity Is The First MSO Special-Edition Super Series

It’s been only 24 hours since McLaren introduced the second-generation Super Series at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, and the British firm has already unveiled the first special-edition model customized by MSO (McLaren Special Operations).

That didn’t take long, huh?

Called the 720S Velocity, this special model stands out immediately thanks to its bespoke two-tone paint. The front and upper body panels are finished in Nerello Red, a brand-new color, while the sides and the rear of the car are wrapped in Volcano Red. The combination creates a fade out effect from front to rear, a first for an MSO-created McLaren. The unique paint job is complemented by Metallic Bronze alloy wheels and a range of clear carbon-fiber elements, including the rear deck vent, the rear aero bridge, and the sill covers.

Once inside, we are greeted by Carbon Black Alcantara trim, Harissa Red leather inserts, and matching highlights on the dashboard, steering wheel, door panel, and sports seats. The headlines and the B-pillars are covered in Carbon Black Alcantara with Harissa Red contrast stitching.

The drivetrain is identical to the standard model, meaning that motivation comes from a twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8. Derived from the award-winning 3.8-liter V-8 from the previous Super Series, the 4.0-liter unit is 41-percent new and generates 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Charging from 0 to 62 mph takes “less than three seconds,” while the 124-mph benchmark comes in “less than eight” seconds, according to McLaren. Top speed is now rated at a mind-boggling 212 mph.

The Velocity costs around £335,000 (about $406,960) depending on options, which represents a £126,400 (around $153,580) premium over the standard 720S. McLaren says it’s just one of five MSO themes prepared for the new Super Series, with the other four being named GT, Pacific, Track, and Stealth.
