The most controversial MSO McLaren ever made
The one-off McLaren 720S from Pebble Beach 2017 with purple paint and white leather
The brand’s Special Operations division (MSO) painted this customer commissioned 720S in Fux Fuchsia, a bright purple colour not dissimilar to the famous Rubystone Red which was originally introduced by Porsche with the 964 RS.
This unique colour combination was commissioned by a long-term McLaren customer and well-known car collector, Michael Fux. The Philanthropist and entrepreneur is said to own a collection worth over £42.7m, including a 12C in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spyder in purple and a P1 in a unique shade of green.
This 720S also features lightweight black alloy wheels with Fux Fuchsia detailing, as well as subtle flashes of purple on the steering wheel, rear-view mirror and doors. These hints of body matching paint complement the white leather interior in my opinion. In addition to this, MSO has finished the exhaust tips in stealth grey along with carbon fibre trim parts to complete the look.
We don’t know how much this would have cost Mr. Fux but we can imagine a lot. The standard 720S costs £208,600, this MSO example is likely to have cost Mr. Fux considerably more.
Many people may not like the look of this McLaren but I think it is absolutely stunning and one of my favourites.
