What’s better than a new McLaren 720S? One that’s a blank canvas for personalisation. Two new design themes for the 720S have been brought to life as bespoke commissions by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and they’re the Track Theme (in white) and the cool blue Pacific Theme. Both are from the same portfolio as the Velocity Theme that was shown at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The McLaren 720S is available to order as standard in three spec levels, with the additional possibility of MSO Defined options or an MSO Bespoke Commission beyond this. “We were overwhelmed by the reaction to the 720S Velocity at its unveiling and to bring to life two more versions of the MSO 720S Themes portfolio further demonstrates that MSO can fulfil any request to ensure that a car perfectly meets a customer’s vision,” said Ansar Ali, MD of MSO.

Enhancing different aspects of the McLaren supercar’s core character, the Track Theme is painted in Anniversary White and is unashamedly influenced by McLaren’s Formula 1 car, while the Pacific Theme draws on the “sophisticated technical luxury” of the 720S.

The first 720S Track Theme has been comissioned by McLaren Manchester and its Anniversary White paint is inspired by the championship-winning McLaren F1 cars of the 80’s. The exterior is set-off by hand-painted detailing to bonnet, doors, rear quarter panels and airbrake in Carbon Black and McLaren’s F1 hue from 2017, Tarroco Orange. Detailing in the same orange on the rim of the gloss black wheels and a Speedy Kiwi representation on the mirror casings complete the exterior enhancements.

All exterior and interior carbon fibre components have a satin finish, saving weight as well as reinforcing the sporting intent. The cabin is trimmed in Jet Black Alcantara with McLaren Orange contrast stitching. A titanium harness bar – typically 50% lighter than a steel version – is installed and can be fitted with a six-point harness for track use.

The 720S Pacific Theme was commissioned by McLaren Glasgow and takes inspiration from the blue of the world’s largest ocean. It is painted in Cerulean Blue, as featured on today’s McLaren F1 car, with its door intakes finished in a darker Estoril Blue. The paintwork is enhanced by another MSO capability, namely the tinting of carbon fibre components – Cobalt Blue-tinted carbon is used on the roof, front splitter, air intakes, mirror casings, rear diffuser, rear deck and rear bumper and engine cover.

The interior of the Pacific Theme features standard seats with bespoke blue inserts and contrast stitching. The finishing touch is a discreet blue centre band on the steering wheel. The personalisation of both cars is completed by MSO dedication plaques in the cabin, reinforcing their status as bespoke commissions.

The 720S, a second-gen McLaren Super Series model, was introduced in March 2017 as a replacement for the 650S. It’s powered by a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 with 720 PS and 770 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch SSG gearbox. With just 1,283 kg of slippery supercar to haul, 0-100 km/h is done in just 2.9 seconds. Max speed is 341 km/h.
