Unique McLaren Fuchsia-coloured 720S is for Michael Fux
When it comes to this unique McLaren it is a case of what the customer wants, the customer gets.
The British sports carmaker has just unveiled a 720S model like no other, built at the behest of Michael Fux, a US-based entrepreneur, philanthropist and car enthusiast.
Fux, a renowned collector of cars, took possession of the McLaren at the weekend ahead of its public debut on Monday (NZT) at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. He has previously commissioned a McLaren 12C in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spider in bespoke purple and a McLaren P1 in bespoke green.
Painted in "Fux Fuchsia", the colour was created to Fux's individual specification by Rolls-Royce. The colour has been "redeveloped" by McLaren Special Operations and Fux retains exclusive rights to use it on any other McLaren vehicle.
The stunning colour is offset by a white leather interior that features body-coloured accents to create a McLaren like no other.
McLaren Chief Executive Officer, Mike Flewitt, presented the car to Fux in Monterey, California.
The distinctive hue also features as a detail on the lightweight wheels, contrasting with the platinum finish of the alloy. Inside the car, door appliqués, a pinstripe on the steering wheel and even the rear-view mirror are all in body colour, providing highlights of fuchsia in a cabin that is otherwise resplendent from headlining to cup holder – and almost everything in between – in MSO Bespoke white leather with white stitching. White Alcantara floor mats, again with white stitching, complete the theme.
In addition to the bespoke elements of the vehicle, the exhaust and window surrounds are in Stealth grey finish and carbon fibre components from the MSO Defined range have also been specified.
McLaren says that due to the nature of an MSO Bespoke commission, financial details are not disclosed. However, as a starting point, a McLaren 720S in luxury specification is priced from £218,020 (NZ384,064) in the UK.
