McLaren introduced a unique McLaren 720S designed by the McLaren Special Operations at the 2017 Dubai Motor Show earlier this month. The MSO Bespoke McLaren 720S was destined to a customer via McLaren Dubai.
The MSO bespoke McLaren 720S was created with the theme of ‘achievement’ in mind. It pays tribute to the UAE and the Middle East region in whole, which are significant to McLaren in terms of its client base as well as the shareholder support.
The MSO Bespoke McLaren 720S features MSO-designed satin finish black paintwork and gold-coloured wheels and interior components. Its rear wing’s upper portion has a famous Bruce McLaren quote, painted in gold Arabic script in a font style that echoes the Dubai skyline. Based on the McLaren 720S Performance, the bespoke model gets carbon fibre exterior upgrade packs for the front splitter and air intakes, rear bumper and roof panel. Its rear diffuser is also made out of carbon fibre. The ORVM arms, rear aero bridge and deck and engine covers are all from the MSO Defined carbon fibre component range.
Inside too, there’s a considerable usage of carbon fibre to make the MSO Bespoke McLaren 720S look special. MSO Defined carbon fibre sill panels, fascia vents and steering wheel, in addition to a regular carbon fibre interior upgrade pack, complement the black Alcantara and black leather trim. Satin gold-painted extended gearshift paddles, a satin-gold coloured centre band on the steering wheel and pinstriping in the same hue to the spokes and gold-coloured door appliques further enhance the interior appeal.
The MSO Bespoke McLaren 720S sports a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine. This engine produces 720 PS at 7,250 rpm and 770 Nm of torque and 5,500 rpm. It sends drive to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A 0-100 acceleration sprint takes just 2.9 seconds. The mid-engined supercar can reach from 0-200 km/h in 7.8 seconds and achieve a top speed of 341 km/h.
