A one of a kind McLaren 720S finished in Fux Fuchsia made its debut at the 67th annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance during famed Monterey Car Week, where it became a leading centerpiece of the event for the various automotive enthusiasts who were in attendance. The Bespoke division of McLaren Special Operations (MSO) designed and then forged this distinctive McLaren to the personal specifications of entrepreneur and philanthropist, Michael Fux. The Chief Executive Officer of McLaren Automotive, Mike Flewitt, conferred the supercar to Michael Fux just before it was put on display at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Concept Lawn on Sunday, August 20th.
This McLaren 720S features a unique exterior paint colour, an aspect only found on McLaren’s designed to order cars, which is a service available to every McLaren customer through McLaren Special Operations. Mr. Fux’s McLaren is in ‘Fux Fuchsia’, a colour specially contrived for Michael Fux by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited and later on being enhanced by MSO. This colour is also exclusive to Mr. Fux as he owns the rights for its usage, making any other McLaren vehicle restricted from bearing ‘Fux Fuchsia’ on its exterior design.
“Challenging the art of the possible to meet the most demanding customer requirements and then delivering beyond expectations are integral to the service that McLaren Special Operations offers,” commented Jolyon Nash, McLaren Automotive Executive Director, Global Sales and Marketing. “MSO provides McLaren owners with virtually limitless possibilities to tailor a car exactly to their needs and tastes; unique paint colours and finishes, custom leather and stitching and exotic materials are all available within a bespoke commission, while beyond this there are opportunities all the way up to complete vehicles designed to individual specification.”
‘Fux Fuchsia’ is emblazoned on the car’s lightweight wheels, conflicting with the platinum finish of the alloy. The distinctive colour, which is also featured on the steering wheel as well as rear-view mirrors, complements its MSO Bespoke white leather with white stitching and white Alcantara floor mats. Additionally, the vehicle’s exhaust and window surrounds are in Stealth gray finish while carbon fibre elements from MSO Defined range have been further particularized. These specific features can be ordered on each and every McLaren, of any colour of their choosing (that is as long as it is not ‘Fux Fuchsia’).
The expected price range varies on an MSO Bespoke commission, and due to this the financial details regarding this matter are not disclosed. But if the McLaren 720S is in Luxury specification the car would be priced at £218,020 (UK) or $281,880 (US)
