Bespoke Zenith Black McLaren 720S Revealed to Amaze
When you hear ‘McLaren 720S’, you hear ‘strong, fast, impressive’. Well, apart from its outstanding performance, this car is an absolute stunner in terms of its looks, especially when MSO puts its hands on the McLaren. This year McLaren’s Special Operation division presented the latest commissioned project at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show – McLaren 720S boasting satin black and gold colors. Truly grabbing your attention, this Zenith Black is finished in a satin coat. The exterior color is contrasted in a very beautiful way by the shiny gold alloy wheels and 24-carat gold engine heatshield. There’s also this jaw-dropping detail on the rear spoiler- a written well-known Bruce McLaren quote – “Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone”. It was painted in gold Arabic script echoing the Dubai skyline with its style. What looks like a subtle detail on the spoiler, actually took 30 hours to complete with the use of stencils produced by the MSO design team. The idea was to achieve the desired dramatic visual impact of the gold lettering and it was definitely managed.
MSO division went on and upgraded the exterior with a few special tweaks, such as carbon fiber front splitter and air intakes, rear bumper and roof panel. Carbon fiber use continues with the rear diffuser, the door mirror arms, rear aero bridge and deck and engine covers. Quite impressive, isn’t it? But wait until you hear about the interior. The bespoke car’s interior received satin gold-painted extended gearshift paddles, a satin gold-coloured centre band to the steering wheel and pinstriping in the same hue as the spokes. Whereas MSO implemented carbon fiber, Alcantara, and leather for the interior, they managed to create one of the most aesthetically pleasing interiors of any McLaren ever built.
