A one-off McLaren 720S has been revealed, created for renowned auto collector Michael Fux, who built a multimillion-pound business empire around the sale of memory foam mattresses after arriving in the United States from Cuba penniless aged 15. "Expect more like this" appears to be the message, so if you loved that X-1 then maybe now's the time to approach McLaren. This bespoke 720S joins its garage mates that include a McLaren 12C in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spider in bespoke purple and a McLaren P1 in bespoke green. He is famed in the U.S. for his philanthropic exploits, including raising money for charities by displaying his cars.
For the 2017 edition, the company of Woking notably brings this 720S developed in its department MSO (McLaren Special Operations), at the request of a customer particularly demanding in terms of colors.
Besides the retina-searing shade of exterior paint, the inside door appliqués, a pinstripe on the steering wheel, and the rear-view mirror are all finished in in Fux Fuchsia. Also on offer are white alcantara floor mats white stitching, completing the theme. Everything else is MSO Bespoke white leather with white stitching.
In addition to the bespoke elements of the vehicle, the exhaust and window surrounds feature a stealth grey finish and carbon fibre components from the MSO Defined range.
No mechanical changes have been made, so it is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 like other 720S cars, sending 710bhp to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. "McLaren may have even been sandbagging the 720S" performance according to a recent dyno run. For this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, McLaren unveiled a custom 720S made for United States collector Michael Fux, and it'll be the only one painted this color in the world. Based on previous bespoke commissions, the modifications are expected to have cost around half the price of the vehicle again.
