Built-to-order McLaren 720S exhibited at Dubai Motor Show

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

There are gold wheels, a (no doubt McLaren F1-inspired) 24-carat gold heatshield for the engine, smatterings of gold in the cabin, and our favourite bit, gold lettering on the wing.

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. But the highlight of the vehicle is the rear wing that features a famous Bruce McLaren quote painted in gold Arabic script stylized to resemble the Dubai skyline.

To personalize the auto added more than 120 hours to the production process.

The new owner of the MSO Bespoke McLaren 720S on display at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show will take delivery of the auto from McLaren Dubai when the show finishes.

Mozilla Brings Competition to Google Chrome With New Firefox Quantum Browser
The first ever Quantum-fueled Firefox version, Firefox 57 , is about to land on your Windows, Linux, and macOS machines. Firefox now controls 13.14 percent of the browser market, behind Chrome's 59.84 and Internet Explorer's 15.09 percent.

To create the desired visual impact of the gold lettering, custom stencils produced by the MSO design visualisation team had to be used.

MSO used a McLaren 720S Performance as the base auto, adding a huge number of carbon fibre body pieces, including the front splitter, rear bumper, roof panel, rear diffuser and rear "aero bridge". Bespoke commission, the 720S has been finished in a Zenith Black paint with a satin finish. The gearshift paddles are satin gold-painted, and each door inner panel gets a satin gold-colored appliqué.

No change to the mechanicals, with the 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 continuing to serve up 720 PS at 7,500 rpm and 770 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. McLaren adds that more than 120 hours were required for the personalization process, with the rear wing alone requiring 30 hours to finish.

McLaren says achievement was a key theme behind the commission, both for the British luxury carmaker itself and the United Arab Emirates and Gulf states themselves, which form a key client and shareholder base for the company. Certainly we can imagine that the owner won't be holding the performance back when he takes delivery of the vehicle following the conclusion of the Dubai show later this week. "This auto pays tribute to that".
