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.
