One-off McLaren 720S revealed at Dubai motor show

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

The specially commissioned 720S is a "one of one" production by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), which handles the Woking-based manufacturer's bespoke creations. On the inside, a plaque identifies the car's one-off MSO status. This 720S gets a unique paint scheme that has been personalised according the owner's wishes, with a quote from company founder, Bruce McLaren, painted on the vehicle in Arabic script.

A black satin paint covers the bodywork, with gold-coloured alloy wheels and a 24-carat gold engine heat shield finishing the unique look.

Trump lands in Philippines, final stop in Asia
When the reporters asked Trump whether he would raise human rights at the meeting, Duterte replied with: "Whoa, whoa". Human Rights Watch said that even children are being targeted and described the issue as a "new level of depravity".

Inside, the gearshift paddles, centre band to the steering wheel and door trim are finished in gold, although a carbonfibre steering wheel, sill panels and fascia vents carry the exterior theme to the interior.

The most notable personal touch is found on the rear-wing which bears a quote by Bruce McLaren, painted in gold. It would be a waste of life to do nothing with one's ability, for I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone'. As confirmation that this particular 720S configuration won't be repeated, the sill has been branded with a plaque displaying the make, model and a build number showing the vehicle is "one of one". Based on the new 720S, the company says personalising the vehicle added more than 120 hours to the production process. Aside from the colour and interior trim customisations, the vehicle is unchanged over the standard 720S. Various carbon-fibre parts were fitted, including the air intakes, front splitter and rear diffuser, while the interior is upholstered in black Alcantara and leather.
