MSO is at it again with another sick custom job on the McLaren 720S

McLaren’s MSO division is responsible for some of the most mouth-watering creations we’ve seen in recent memory, and it looks like MSO isn’t done, judging, at least, by a pair of new special-edition models, one of which is called the 720S Track Theme. In keeping with MSO’s tradition of going all-out with its projects, the 720S Track Theme gets a smorgasbord of new features and options, all of which have been added to add an extra touch of exclusivity on what is already an exclusive supercar.

What makes the McLaren 720S Track Theme special

When you have a division like MSO that can make something special out of anything, there’s a tendency to raise the bar as far as expectations are concerned. It’s good to know, then, that even with the bar being raised on MSO, McLaren’s personalization division can still deliver the goods.

“The 720S is an exceptional car in every respect in standard form, but there is always the potential to make it even more special with additional individual creative input, which is where McLaren Special Operations comes in,” MSO Managing Director Ansar Ali said. “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 fulfill any request to ensure that a car perfectly meets a customer’s vision.”

The 720S Track Theme was commissioned by McLaren Manchester. The theme of the whole car is centered around McLaren’s championship-winning Formula 1 cars from back in the 80’s and is manifested in the Anniversary-White paint finish of the supercar. The predominantly white 720S also features Carbon Black and Tarroco Orange trim accents, specifically on the hood and doors of the supercar. The same Tarroco Orange accent can also be found on the outer rim of the gloss black wheels. A little easter egg can also be found on the mirror caps. Those who know McLaren’s racing history will recognize the Speedy Kiwi representation on the mirror casings. Rounding out the exclusive exterior details are hand-painted detailing on the hood, doors, rear quarter panels, and airbrake.

Move to the interior of the 720S Track Theme and the changes are just as evident. The carbon fiber trim components in the interior — and exterior, for that matter — have been given a satin finish. The cabin also gets a generous amount of black Alcantara to go with McLaren Orange contrast stitching. MSO also installed a titanium harness bar that’s said to be 50 percent lighter than its steel counterpart. This bar is compatible with a six-point harness if anybody wants to take the 720S Track Theme out for a full track day experience.

There are no engine upgrades to speak of, though it probably doesn’t matter considering that the McLaren 720S already packs a scintillating 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that produces 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough to give drivers goosebumps when they’re going to balls-to-the-wall with the supercar. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which sends power to the rear wheels, allowing the 720S to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Top speed is rated at 212 mph, making the 720S one of the most ferocious supercars in the world.

In case you’re wondering, McLaren plans to sell the 720S Track Theme, even though the company has yet to announce availability and pricing details for the car. To get a clear picture of what we can expect, the standard 720S is priced from $284,745 so if you’re looking to get the 720S Track Theme, expect to pay north of $300,000 for the chance to own one.

Two striking new design themes for the McLaren 720S have been brought to life as bespoke commissions by McLaren Special Operations (MSO). The 720S Pacific Theme and the 720S Track Theme are from the same portfolio as the McLaren 720S Velocity Theme, a sensation of the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show and on display in the UK at the end of this month at ‘Salon Privé’ and the Blenheim Palace Classic & Supercar event.

The McLaren 720S is available to order as standard in three specification levels, with the additional possibility of MSO Defined options or an MSO Bespoke Commission beyond this. Enhancing different aspects of the McLaren supercar’s core character, the Track Theme is painted in Anniversary White and unashamedly influenced by McLaren Formula 1 car, while the Pacific Theme draws on the sophisticated technical luxury of the 720S.

“The 720S is an exceptional car in every respect in standard form but there is always the potential to make it even more special with additional, individual, creative input, which is where McLaren Special Operations comes in,” commented Ansar Ali, Managing Director of McLaren Special Operations. “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.”

The 720S Track Theme and 720S Pacific Theme follow their own respective design directions. Featuring unique colourways and trim, executed with signature MSO technical precision, each theme visually enhances the sculptural beauty, engineering purity and aerodynamic innovation that are the hallmarks of the McLaren 720S, a car recently recognised by the prestigious Red Dot Design Awards as the ‘Best of the Best’ in 2018.

The first 720S Track Theme has been comissioned by McLaren Manchester and is finished in Anniversary White – an MSO Bespoke exterior paint inspired by the championship-winning McLaren Formula 1 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 Formula 1 colour from 2017, Tarroco Orange. Detailing in the same orange hue on the outer 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 authentic 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 by MSO was commissioned by McLaren Glasgow and delves into the blue of the world’s largest and deepest ocean for its inspiration. It is painted in Cerulean Blue, as featured on today’s McLaren Formula 1 car, with its door intakes finished in a darker Estoril Blue. The paintwork is enhanced by another proven MSO capability, namely the tinting of carbon fibre components and 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 720S 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 from McLaren Special Operations.
