Bespoke McLaren MSO 720S breaks cover in Dubai

McLaren unveiled a one-off Gold - on - Black 720S at the 2017 Dubai Motor Show which will be on display throughout the entire stretch of this week’s event. The rare showcase is from a special client of the British marque’s bespoke engineering division.

McLaren Special Operations or MSO’s latest project is the 720S coupe in satin black with gold elements that also features gold alloy wheels, a 24-carat gold engine heat shield and some gold stencils at the rear spoiler bearing Bruce McLaren’s famous quote in 1964.

In order to apply its special MSO touches, the bespoke program added some new upgrades which include new rear bumper, air intakes, front splitter and roof panels which have all been replaced with carbon fiber elements.

MSO-customized Fux Green McLaren Senna is delivered to owner in New York City

The new McLaren Senna isn't your ordinary car on the road. It is a supercar that delivers 800 PS (789 hp), pays tribute to legendary Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, and is available in a limited run of 500 examples. Now, one of these 500 examples has arrived in New York City, as delivered to renowned car collector Michael Fux.

Arriving at the garage of Fux is the first McLaren Senna made for North America. Furthermore, this example of the Senna was personalized for its owner by McLaren Special Operations (MSO). By taking a good look at the extensive bespoke content of this Senna example, it is safe to assume that Fux has really made this supercar an extension of his own personality.

Dubbed as the Fux Green McLaren Senna, this example features a Full Visual Carbon Fiber Body, as finished in a custom emerald green dubbed as Fux Green. This full body set has 67 parts, all needing nearly 1,000 hours to produce. The exterior is rounded off by blue-and-red wheel center lock nuts as well as ball-polished wheels.

2018 McLaren 570GT MSO Black Collection looks darker than ever

In the past couple of months, there have been a number of special edition McLarens that have been released in the past few months. Some of these include the 720S Atlantic Blue and the 570S MSO X. Now, the newest member of the range is arguably more sinister than the rest, and they call it the MSO Black Collection. This McLaren 570GT package will only be limited to 100 examples worldwide, and will definitely see the sporty coupe draped in an all-black, stealth design.

Moving on to the outside, the 570GT will be dressed in a one-off Carbon Black finish, that will be complemented with an MSO Black Pack that replaces the Dark Palladium features available in the standard model.

This includes things like the front and rear splitters, side skirts, and air intakes, and all these will be finished in black. The new set of five twin-spoke lightweight forged wheels will also get a new gloss black diamond finish, which will then be wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The package also adds carbon ceramic brakes and black brake calipers to the car.

Give your McLaren 570S Coupé, 570GT, or 570S Spider a meaner sound by installing MSO titanium exhaust

British automaker McLaren developed their MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division to make their already exclusive vehicles a little more bespoke. And today, we are going to discuss some of their newest and coolest products that indicate the company’s expertise in style and performance to the Sports Series range.

For instance, if you own a 570S Coupe, 570GT and 570S Spider, and you want to achieve a meaner sound, you can always order the new titanium exhaust. It is actually lighter than the stock unit by 11 pounds (5 kilograms). Best of all, it makes the sound it produces five decibels louder. MSO claims that the car’s new tone sounds cleaner and crisper, and that this comes from the rear end of the vehicle.

Today, the titanium exhaust runs 4,750 pounds ($6,570 at current exchange rates), and this part can be had in a Nano Black finish, instead of the standard Nano Clear colour. The good news here is that these add-ons will not only be available as an option for new cars, as later this year, MSO will be offering these as an upgrade to already existing Sports Series owners.

A couple of months ago, some kid from Dubai called Rashed Belhasa, the son of a billionaire construction tycoon, got himself an expensive Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. He then decided he would have it wrapped in his favourite design - a Louis Vuitton x Supreme pattern. It seems like he has lost interest in his car already, and he now decided to put the Italian supercar up for sale.

The fifteen year old, who goes by the handle “Money Kicks” on YouTube, earned millions of followers on social media for it. Under its hood is a twelve cylinder engine.

Last summer, he actually made the headlines on most auto blogs when he showed off this model, coated in a red wrap to match his Louis Vuitton x Supreme shoes (and bags). This definitely is a head turner especially with all the hype this collaboration is getting. As he is still not at the right age to drive, he hired himself a chauffeur to drive him around.

The McLaren F1 is considered to be one of the most difficult models to get your hands on and it’s even more elusive now especially since its prices have gone up in excess of $10 million when being auctioned.

So instead of letting customers cry over the F1, McLaren Newport Beach decided that they would work with their special division, McLaren Special Operations to give 10 of their customers the next best thing: custom MSO X examples of the 570S Coupe with exterior inspiration from the competition livery of an F1 GTR race car.

When looking at the MSO X 570S from the outside, it is apparent that the model gets inspiration from the 570S GT4 race car, except that they are road legal. The sides of the bumpers now get dive plates, while the competition inspired hood features additional intakes.

McLaren’s special department, the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) team, has created a unique colour that is a tribute to the home of the automaker’s founder, Bruce McLaren, in Surrey, England. This unique paint they call the Muriwai White has a white base with subtle hints of blue. We first saw it on the 570S Spider pictured here, but anyone can get their McLaren in this shade through MSO.

This white paint came to light with the help of Amanda McLaren, Bruce’s only child and a brand ambassador for McLaren Automotive. She worked with MSO to develop the special colour. Their family home in England was painted in white, accented with blue doors. You might be wondering where the name Muriwai originated. Well, it is a town in New Zealand, located northwest of Auckland where Bruce grew up and where he won his first hill climb at the young age of 15.

But there’s more to this story. Amanda also said during the announcement of the new paint that her mom, Patty, was at a dinner party once, and a palm reader told her that she would live in a big white house with blue doors and shutters. Following that, she said that this unique shade of white is a symbol of her father’s pride and her mother’s comfort. Her father died prematurely in 1970 at the age of 32. Now we understand what makes this unique hue so special for the McLaren family.

Dubai is one of the few countries where expensive cars are the norm, many of which are specially modified as well. And this just in: Bentley has debuted the new Grand Convertible by Mulliner in Dubai without much fanfare. The said model is housed in Bentley’s largest showroom, and it currently sits beside other members of the family like the Mulsanne, one standard version with another one having the extended wheelbase. Crewe’s latest project may sound familiar to others, and this is because it has already made its debut in November 2014 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

But don’t get me wrong, the one from 2014 was a concept, which was based on the Mulsanne version, minus the roof. On the other hand, the two-tone example that’s sitting in Dubai right now is a production model that started out in life as a Mulsanne Speed before losing its roof, which was also shortened by a few centimeters - 10cm (3.9 inches) to be exact. Its body has been finished with a predominant Moroccan Blue paint, contrasted with a Frosted Silver finish up front, on the hood. This surrounds the imposing grille as well as the windscreen frame.

But that’s not what the production model boasts of. Apart from the stylish body, it has a large piece of wood applied onto the rear deck like that of the concept we saw in 2014. Shmee says that this must be the largest piece of wood that has been installed on a car ever, and this particular one even comes with metallic fins.

A super-mighty hypercar like the Devel Sixteen – boasting of a 5,000-hp engine as its crowning glory – is surely hard to miss and forget. But it seems that just as people have already begun to forget about the Devel Sixteen, the hellish hypercar is making a much-needed reappearance at the upcoming 2017 Dubai Motor Show.

The Devel Sixteen actually made its debut as a concept car at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show. It is a creation of designer Majid Al Attar, who called the Devel Sixteen as the most powerful vehicle ever built, combining power, technology and sophistication. At first glance, the Devel Sixteen looks like a fusion between the Lamborghini Veneno and the Lamborghini Egoisa. Deep inside, however, the Devel Sixteen is several times more powerful than both Lamborghini supercars combined.

On paper, the Devel Sixteen is a sophisticated demon that is powered by a 12.3-liter quad-turbo V16 engine that could deliver around 5,000 hp (3,728 kW) of nerve-wracking output. That would be equivalent to the power of around 10 supercars, or, more accurately five examples of McLaren P1. But there have been questions whether a real Devel Sixteen -- or at least a running prototype -- exists.

As there are only 375 McLaren P1s in the world and all of them have been completely sold out, McLaren’s hybrid hypercar is truly one of its kind. But what if we tell you there is one that actually stands out among all the McLaren P1s out there? Not only that, it has also increased in market value bearing in mind the $1.3M price tag that initially came with the P1.

Currently on sale at James Edition is an extremely unique example of McLaren P1 by McLaren Special Operations. Its seller, Premium Automotive Concept, is based in Germany and has been selling it with a listed price of €2.170.000 (or approximately 2,561.468 USD).

The owner of this particularly rare example had first ordered it in matte black as you can see from the photo. But then the rest of its body panels are finished either in carbon fiber or gloss black as well, making it stand out all the more from any regular P1s we’ve seen before.

McLaren Special Operations division (MSO) recently finished two new bespoke supercars: an MSO R Coupe, and an MSO R Spider. Both vehicles were based on the 650S and are fitted with a number of features. There’s another thing you should know: both vehicles were also made for one lucky and wealthy customer.

The coupe and the spider are among the latest projects of the MSO, and both are equipped with the same internal, external and mechanical specifications. For instance, both come with a 3.8 liter biturbo V8 that carries out 679 horsepower (506 kilowatts) and 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres) of torque. That is actually quite a big difference when you compare it to the standard 650S that produces only 641 horsepower (477 kilowatts). To give them both a unique roar, they were given a new titanium exhaust system with a crossover muffler.

To give them the overall package, both models will be given a dramatic-looking exterior, finished in a beautiful Liquid Silver paint, contrasted by a unique Delta Red pin stripe feature on both the front splitter and side blades. It has been given new elements like the MSO Visual Carbon Viber (VCF) front bumper, hood, louvered fenders, roof scoop, side mirror casing, and the rear decklid. The owner will be reminded of MSO when looking at the exterior, because of the splitter, side skirts, door sills, and rocker panels. Lastly, the coupe comes with a set of new satin black five-spoke wheels, while the spider has been fitted with five-spoke gloss black wheels.

Starting this month, the Uber Service in Dubai will begin to offer the new Tesla Model S or Model X to bring passengers to their destination. This comes as Uber entered into a partnership with Dubai Taxi Corporation to become the company’s exclusive ride-hailing partner for its fleet of luxury electric vehicles.

Earlier this year, Tesla inked a deal to deliver 200 units of the Model S sedan and Model X SUV – all ‘fully self-driving-capability’ to Dubai Taxi. The taxi company took delivery of 50 of these Tesla vehicles in September and is now readying them for public use. To this regard, Dubai Taxi entered into a partnership with Uber, which will deploy these 50 new Tesla vehicles under UberONE service in Dubai.

This means that riders across Dubai now have the chance to request a Tesla Model S or Model X from their smartphones. The service could be accessed just by downloading the Uber app and selecting the UberOne option.

Oh, can you say that again? There’s a “used” Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta with 0 km mileage and with a listed price of $7,349,400. Okay, so let’s just round that off to 7.35 million USD or 27 million dirhams to be exact. Too much or just right? You be the judge. While Ferrari hadn’t officially revealed the Aperta’s unit price, it’s believed each came with a $3.9 million price tag. The only problem if you’re a true fan and are loaded is that all examples were sold out even before it was officially launched. If you were one of those who didn’t make the cut, you have to bear the higher price margin set by certain dealers or former owners.

James Edition, the world’s luxury marketplace, has recently posted this LaFerrari Aperta in Rossa Corsa body pain offered by a premium seller based in Dubai. For those who missed out on obtaining the fastest open-top Ferrari ever built, you should know that the dealership in UAE is under the name of GTR Motors and is located in Al Aweer New Auto Market Block 2, Showroom Number 18.

Spec details show a 2017 year model LaFerrari Aperta with 8 cylinder engine, automatic gearbox and an all-wheel drive drivetrain. The left-hand drive cabriolet is also featuring Ferrari’s iconic red paint job with black interior. While the description said it is “used” and the odometer shows otherwise, it could only mean that its first owner had bought it for “investment” purposes.

McLaren Special Operations’ (MSO) latest project pays tribute to the racing homologation car from 1997 - that is the F1 XP GT “Longtail”. Today, they have styled six new McLaren 570GT coupes to look like the 1997 model. All six examples were given an exclusive livery, painted in “XP Green” on the outside, while the interior is finished in a Saddle Tan leather that complements the exterior design. The interior also gets some green bits here and there, as well as a specialized plaque on the dashboard. Overall, it looks like a balance of a vintage and a modern vehicle.

The model that these 570GTs pays tribute to was actually introduced back then to keep up with the FIA homologation rules. And after the company has seen the success of the McLaren F1 race car, the company came up with a “Longtail” model, which they referred to as the F1 XP GT. The company even had to build a road legal version of this too. What really resembles the 570GT with the F1 XP GT would be its green and tan colour scheme, as you can see in the photos.

With only six examples, who are the six lucky people who will get their hands on one of these? Well, what we do know is that these examples will be sold in the UK, Germany, and The Netherlands. Furthermore, McLaren shared that the MSO-specified parts on the customized model are worth £21,000 (around $28,500).

All eyes were turned to the fuchsia pink bespoke McLaren 720S MSO at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Sunday. Surely, we can understand why. The one-off supercar, which was commissioned by entrepreneur and philanthropist Michael Fux and was created by the British automaker’s bespoke division, wears a very bright, eye catching body paint of pink tone with a hint of purple.

Featuring what is called the “Fux Fuschia” color scheme, the MSO 720S was tailor-made to perfection to meet its owner’s unique taste. Starting from the striking exterior up to its luxurious cabin with custom leather and white stitching, down to its lightweight alloy wheels in platinum. Other highlights consist of the cabin’s carbon fiber elements, the pinstriped steering wheel, the fuchsia pink rear view mirror cover as well as the window surrounds and exhaust pipes in Stealth Gray finish. It also comes with white floor mats to complete the all-white theme interior scheme.

A well-known car enthusiast, Fux has over a hundred luxury cars in his collection and many of those are custom made with some unusual colors. There’s one McLaren P1 in green, a McLaren 12C Spider in purple and a McLaren 12C in orange and now comes the new Fuchsia Fux pink McLaren MSO 720S. Fux’s list of car collection doesn’t end there yet. The self-made businessman from Cuba also owns several Rolls-Royces, Aston Martins, Porsches and Ferraris. Being a famous philanthropist, Fux is known to often put his precious cars on display on charitable events while raising money for a good cause.

Most, if not all cars, can be tuned one way or another to cater to the customer’s liking. But some cars, like the Lamborghini Huracan, have way more potential when it comes to tuning - and we’re not just talking about tuning it visually, but also mechanically.

It’s not surprising then that with all the attention it attracts, Japanese tuner Liberty Walk and Underground Racing had both worked on the Lamborghini Huracan in the past to give it an extra oomph. The former worked on the supercar’s new body kit while the latter took care of its powerhouse, unlocking the Huracan’s capacity to an unimaginable 2,300 horsepower.

The odd thing is that the owner of the car, a young lady, only asked for a car that would stick out among all the other amazing cars in Dubai. She took the car to RevoZport, who then added Razmig active aerodynamic components to the supercar. It came back to her with an impressive amount of power, indeed making it stand out amongst every other car or supercar in Dubai.

Having a full list of MSO options is certainly one of the modern miracles in the world of after-market tuning. That said, there’s a McLaren 675LT Spider with MSO upgrades currently on sale at McLaren Scottsdale. For $487,572, the 675LT Spider features Mercedes Benz’s Flintgrau Metallic paint with MSO’s front splitter, rear diffuser, rear bumper, hood and side skirts all made with carbon fiber. In addition, the airbrakes, roof and hood have been painted off with a pair of racing stripes in Cerberus Pearl.

With this many MSO options, the one listed here may not even be the highest priced McLaren 675LT but it surely is one of a kind. We say this because a whole other range of MSO upgrades could be seen throughout the exterior. For example, there’s a new set of wheels in bronze with brake calipers in signature McLaren Orange. It also boasts a satin blue carbon fiber paddle shifts and a 24 carat gold heat shield throughout the exhausts.

Inside, the MSO specced 675LT Spider comes with a unique combination of carbon black leather and Alcantra fabric with a touch of Midnight Blue to highlight the accents. To create a connection with the exterior motif, the seat belts feature the same McLaren Orange just as the one painted on the brake calipers. All in, this entire set would typically cost you more than $90,000, which we think isn’t bad for a car bearing the Speedy Kiwi “swoosh” logo to start with.

While the BMW M3 is making some noise in Abu Dhabi with its San Marino Blue outfit, Porsche on the other hand, is catching people’s attention in Dubai as the 918 Spyder wears bright red livery. The reason why this model is turning heads is because Porsche isn’t known to give their cars distinct, bright livery unlike its competitors.

This shade of red might be common for a Ferrari, but definitely not for a Porsche - and there are only a few of them. In fact, this specific model is actually being sold by Deals on Wheels in Dubai. Another thing about this example is that even the carbon fiber roof has been painted red, instead of retaining its carbon fiber finish.

Not only is this Spyder looking spectacular on the outside, this Porsche 918 has also been upgraded with the optional Weissach package. This package comes with new aerodynamic fins on the rear bumper plus a set of lightweight wheels for better performance. If you didn’t know, the Weissach pack will make your Spyder faster by 0.2 second, making it sprint to 62 miles per hour in only 2.6 seconds. Moreover, the Acid Green brake calipers look great combined with the 918 Spyder’s red finish.

It seems that Dubai has become home to some of the largest dealerships in the world. For instance, Lamborghini of Italy and Bentley of the United Kingdom have their largest dealerships in the most populous and perhaps wealthiest city in the rich United Arab Emirates. Now, French carmaker Bugatti has recently opened its largest dealership in this wealthy city.

Opening a dealership in Dubai is a simple decision for carmakers – especially those building high-end and premium units – to make. After all, Dubai is a city where premium vehicles, supercars and exotic mobile units are a common sight. Seeing a Ferrari or a Lamborghini in different parts of the city is considered a normal event, considering that it is home or the second home to several of the world’s wealthiest families and individuals.

Considering the special status of Dubai among carmakers, it was no wonder that Bentley opened its largest dealership where it matters. In fact, the French carmaker has received 30 orders for its new Bugatti Chiron hypercar from the UAE alone. The establishment off the new dealership should boost Bugatti’s presence in the Middle East.

It appears that flying cars will no longer be experienced solely by the Jetsons. That is, if Uber pushes through with the plan. During the early part of the week, Jeff Holden, who is the Chief Product Officer of Uber, disclosed that the company is planning to shake up the taxi industry with the introduction of the flying taxi. Announced during the Uber Elevate Summit held in Dallas, the goal is to make all this possible before the end of this decade.

Holden said that the company plans to release this project by 2020 at both Dubai and Dallas-Fort Worth in Texas. While not exactly cars in a general sense, these flying taxis are in fact small electric aircraft that can take off vertically and land vertically as well. Meaning they can be considered as VTOL, which stands for vertical take-off and landing. Since it is powered by electricity, then there is the expectation that it will have no emissions. Further, they are projected to be quiet enough in order to be operated in urban areas.

As if to heighten the excitement even more, Uber said that the price will only be a bit expensive compared to UberX. In terms of figures, the company estimates that a mile may cost somewhere in the area of $1.32. However Uber believes that the price will likely go down over the long run and could become cheaper than actually owning a car.
