McLaren unfurls bespoke black-and-gold inscribed 720S for Dubai

One-off Mc Laren 720S revealed at Dubai motor show

This includes a 24-carat gold engine heat shield and gold-painted wheels.

Bruce McLaren's quote "Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone" is emblazoned on the rear spoiler of the auto in Arabic, stylised to resemble the Dubai skyline. The dark satin bodywork is accented with gold pinstriping, gold-painted wheels, and a painstakingly lettered spoiler which spells out a quote from McLaren founder Bruce McLaren in Arabic. Short of taking a hacksaw to the auto itself, there isn't much MSO can't do to customise or personalise a vehicle, and it works with some of the world's wealthiest buyers.

And for the United Kingdom supercar company's latest MSO offering, the words of founder Bruce McLaren are inscribed on this rear wing of this one-off 720S. To ensure the gold bits really stand out, the auto gets a Zenith Black paintjob with a satin finish. There's also a smattering of gold touches on the inside too.

Inside, this unique 720S features black Alcantara and black leather trim further complemented by MSO Defined carbon fibre sill panels, fascia vents and steering wheel, in addition to a regular carbon fibre interior upgrade pack. Making its official debut at the Dubai Motor Show, this McLaren 720S was commissioned as a bespoke creation.

Customising the auto from a standard 720S took more than 120 hours, with 30 of those spent on the rear spoiler alone. The decoration took 30 hours to complete, using specially-made stencils.

The auto is equipped with the 720S's standard 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that goes 0-124 miles per hour in 7.8 seconds and boasts a top speed of 212 miles per hour.

Andreas Bareis, managing director Middle East, Africa & Latin America for McLaren Automotive, said: "The quote from Bruce McLaren rings true not only of the history of McLaren, but also the achievements of the UAE and the Gulf states over the last four decades. This auto pays tribute to that".
