However, the auto McLaren Automotive is most excited to showcase is neither of those. Built by McLaren Special Operations, this 720S will go on display at Pebble Beach Concours on August 20th, where McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt will hand the keys to entrepreneur and vehicle collector Michael Fux. This paint was originally created for Fux by Rolls-Royce, and was developed by McLaren Special Operations.

Michael Fux is renowned as a collector of highly desirable, rare cars and has previously commissioned a McLaren 12C in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spider in bespoke purple and a McLaren P1™ in bespoke green.

The new "Fux Fuchsia" shade combines a fuchsia paint finish with white leather interior and body-coloured accents to create a one-of-a-kind McLaren. The cabin also features MSO Bespoke white leather, white stitching, and White Alcantara can be found.


No mechanical changes have been made, so it is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 like other 720S cars, sending 710bhp to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Gearheads flock to California every summer for the annual gathering surrounding the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where some of the finest cars in the world are presented. No price was revealed, although it is likely to have been substantially more than the £218,020 charged for 720S in Luxury spec. The automaker says the price of Fux's McLaren isn't available due to the "nature of an MSO Bespoke commission".

Notably, MSO grew revenue by 143% previous year, underlining the booming demand among high-end buyers to finish their cars with one-off flourishes.

Speaking at the unveiling, Jolyon Nash, McLaren's Executive Director of Global Sales and Marketing, said, "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".
