Bespoke McLaren 720 S personalised by MSO is unveiled in Geneva just 24 hours after global debut of second-generation Super Series. Visual dynamism of McLaren Special Operations’ ‘Velocity’ theme celebrates extreme performance credentials of new McLaren supercar.

McLaren hasn't wasted anytime showing a special variant of the 720 S . Just a day after the standard model was shown at Geneva, it rolled out a custom version built by McLaren Special Operations. It's the McLaren MSO 720 S Velocity, and is one of five custom 720 S models built by the company.

Wild colors aren't anything new on supercars. In fact, it's almost necessary for a supercar to have a wild exterior color to truly experience the supercar lifestyle. But while we ascribe to this ideology, we're not sure about McLaren's latest bespoke MSO 720S and its rather Wild Berry Skittles "Fux Fuchsia" shade.

The color was created for Michael Fux, a U.S.-based entrepreneur, philanthropist, and all around car guy. He commissioned the car through McLaren's MSO division and the paint is based on a bespoke Rolls-Royce color that was modified by MSO.

2018 McLaren 570S Spider: The No-Compromise Macca?

  2018 McLaren 570S Spider: The No-Compromise Macca? For this McLaren, losing its roof requires few sacrifices.The 570S gains just 101 pounds in its transformation to Spider form and, according to McLaren, loses no stiffness at all in its carbon-fiber tub. The claimed zero-to-60-mph time of 3.1 seconds is unchanged from McLaren’s estimate for the 570S coupe (we tested one at 2.9 seconds), and top speed is undiminished, at 204 mph—with the top up, that is. You’ll have to settle for 196 mph with the top lowered.

The most striking thing about the new 720 s is the outward appearance. While it still maintains its decidedly McLaren presence, it completely stands on its own in the lineup. MSO “Velocity”. As always, McLaren couldn’t get by with just showing off a new model.

Fux's new MSO 720S will be added to his McLaren collection, which also includes a 12C, 12C Spider in a custom purple color, and a P1 finished in a custom green.
