Bespoke McLaren 720S by MSO revealed at 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Article by Christian A., on August 23, 2017

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.

The bespoke 720 S were handed to Fux by McLaren’s CEO Mike Flewitt at the Monterey Car Week prior to its official revelation at the Pebble Beach in California. There have been no details released yet about the price but it is very likely to have cost him more than £200,000. Do take note that the Fux Fuschia exterior paint was developed by Rolls Royce for its long-time client Mr Fux himself only then it was used by MSO for the 720S.

McLaren’s executive director for global sales and marketing Joylon Nash likewise said in a statement how MSO offers McLaren owners almost all the possibilities available in customizing their car according to their needs and tastes just like the number of designed-to-order paint schemes and finishes. It is worth noting too that McLaren’s bespoke division has gained 143% in revenue from the previous year--- added proof that more high-end buyers are opting for the bespoke touch of McLaren Special Operations.

As standard, a McLaren 720 S is packed with a 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine. It has an impressive output of 537 kW and 77Nm that can go from a 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds before reaching 200km/h in only 7.8 seconds.

McLAREN SPECIAL OPERATIONS PRESENTS UNIQUE McLAREN 720S CUSTOMER COMMISSION AT PEBBLE BEACH CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE

A truly striking, one-of-kind McLaren 720S makes its public debut this weekend at the illustrious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, California. The Bespoke division of McLaren Special Operations crafted the unique McLaren supercar, to the specification of entrepreneur and philanthropist, Michael Fux. McLaren Chief Executive Officer, Mike Flewitt, presented the car to Mr Fux in Monterey, ahead of it being displayed on the ‘Concept Lawn’ on Concours Sunday,

The exterior paint colour immediately identifies the car as being designed to order, a service available to all McLaren customers through McLaren Special Operations. Named ‘Fux Fuchsia’, the colour was created for Mr Fux by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited and subsequently redeveloped by MSO; Mr Fux will retain exclusive rights to its use on any other McLaren vehicle.

“Challenging the art of the possible to meet the most demanding customer requirements and then delivering beyond expectations are integral to the service that McLaren Special Operations offers,” commented Jolyon Nash, McLaren Automotive Executive Director, Global Sales and Marketing. “MSO provides McLaren owners with virtually limitless possibilities to tailor a car exactly to their needs and tastes; unique paint colours and finishes, custom leather and stitching and exotic materials are all available within a bespoke commission, while beyond this there are opportunities all the way up to complete vehicles designed to individual specification.”

The distinctive hue also features as a detail on the lightweight wheels, contrasting with the platinum finish of the alloy. Inside the car, door appliqués, a pinstripe on the steering wheel and even the rear-view mirror are all in body colour, providing highlights of fuchsia in a cabin that is otherwise resplendent from headlining to cup holder – and almost everything in between – in MSO Bespoke white leather with white stitching. White Alcantara® floor mats, again with white stitching, complete the theme.

In addition to the bespoke elements of the vehicle, the exhaust and window surrounds are in Stealth grey finish and carbon fibre components from the MSO Defined range have also been specified. These can be ordered on any McLaren, of any colour.

Michael Fux is renowned as a collector of highly desirable, rare cars and has previously commissioned a McLaren 12C in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spider in bespoke purple and a McLaren P1™ in bespoke green.
