Winged Polish cavalry inspires Carlex Design’s makeover of McLaren 720S

Article by Christian A., on June 25, 2018

Carlex Design is well known for its numerous customized vehicles and their lavish interiors. Most of the time, these custom interiors are far from subtle too, using expansive amounts of fine leather and Alcantara. While the interiors are definitely loud, it can’t be denied that the aftermarket company has great taste. One of the tuner’s latest work is this McLaren 720S with a gorgeous burgundy interior that matches its exterior with a personal touch. It would be an understatement to call this one unique. We’re willing to bet that there’s nothing out there like it.

The McLaren 720S’ cabin has been given essentially everything by the tuner. These range from leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber, to quilted designs and perforations. The whole modification process took Carlex three weeks to complete, and the company gave it all its time and effort into finishing the project, modifying the seat upholstery, steering wheel, door panels, center console, dashboard, the full floor, headliner, and the space behind the seats. In fact, no part of the interior has been left untouched.

As for the exterior, Carlex customized the McLaren 720S with painted eagle wings on the side. Apparently, the theme for the entire car revolves around a history motif of 16th to 18th century “winged” Polish cavalry. Overall, the exterior design goes well with the exterior colour as well as the carbon fiber package from the factory. Meanwhile, the interior also gets a carbon fiber pack.

Aside from the customized exterior and interior, the 720S is otherwise, pretty standard. Under its hood is a biturbocharged 4.0 liter V8 that produces 710 horsepower (530 kilowatts) and 568 pound feet (770 Newton metres) of torque. Power goes to the rear wheels through a seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission. It only takes 2.9 seconds to complete the sprint from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour). It also boasts a top speed of 212 miles per hour (341 kilometers per hour).

We were able to cover a host of other Carlex Design projects including the Ferrari 488 Spider covered in blue leather and Alcantara. All of the aftermarket tuner’s creations are both unique and fascinating, even if this does not really appeal to everyone.

The burgundy interior definitely looks more beautiful than anyone had expected, with all the contrasting texture inside the cabin. It also looks great with its shiny black interior with decals, which makes it look faster and more aggressive.
