Bespoke McLaren 720S takes centre stage at Dubai Motor Show

One lucky customer has commissioned their own bespoke 720S, built by the McLaren Special Operations division. Due to be displayed at the Dubai Motor Show, this custom 720S has taken design styling from the customer’s home nation and incorporates some inspirational words from Bruce McLaren.

Finished in satin Zenith Black paint with contrasting gold wheels, this unique car has a striking look. Gold elements break up the dark exterior, a gold heat shield features and there are gold-finished door cards, paddle-shifters and steering wheel inserts. The rest of the interior is clad with carbon fibre, Alcantara and leather.

The rear wing features a quote from Bruce McLaren in gold paint that reads, “Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone”. Written in Arabic, the layout is designed to represent the Dubai skyline. A plaque features on the car, commemorating the uniqueness of the model and documenting that it is ‘one of one’.

The car remains mechanically unchanged, with the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 generating an impressive 710bhp. Understandably the cost hasn’t been mentioned, however with 120 hours labour, on top of the normal production time, we can expect a significant hike on the standard price!
