Following on from the new 720S, which was revealed at last week’s Geneva motor show, McLaren is highlighting the level to which buyers of its new Super Series will be able to personalise their car by unveiling a bespoke 720S, created by the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) division.
Dubbed the 720S ‘Velocity’, the one-off model features a special red-coloured paint theme comprising two pearlescent hues of red; a newly formulated shade, “Nerello Red”, is used on the front and upper body panels of the car – including on the red-tinted visual carbon-fibre bonnet – and fades into a “Volcano Red” that covers the sides and rear of the car.
The custom paintwork is matched with alloy wheels finished in a subtle shade of metallic bronze. Other external details include a range of carbon-fibre parts selected from the MSO collection. In addition to the red carbon-fibre bonnet, a gloss carbon rear deck vent, gloss carbon-fibre service cover, gloss carbon rear aero bridge and satin carbon full-length sill cover are also fitted.
Red highlights are also continued throughout the car’s interior, including on the fascia, steering wheel, doors and across the sports seats fitted as standard on the 720S.
As an MSO commission, the 720S Velocity costs around £335,000, which is over £100,000 more than the entry-level 720S.
