McLaren 720S Spider by MSO revealed as one-off special

McLaren has unveiled a special one-off version of its 720S Spider by MSO at the Geneva motor show. The car features a unique colour scheme to highlight its aerodynamics and showcase the capability of its customisation division.

Developed by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the bespoke version of the recently launched 710bhp open-top supercar is painted in a blend of three metallic paints, which are designed to emphasise the aerodynamics of the Super Series model.

The firm says the tri-tone finish, which it calls Coriolis, is an advancement of a technology first shown on the 720S Velocity by MSO at Geneva in 2017. McLaren says the paint scheme took 260 hours to finish.

The special 720S Spider also sports a number of other custom features, including the use of carbonfibre for the tonneau cover, diffuser and B-pillars, as well as a sports exhaust and electrochromatic glass on the retractable hard-top.

The interior is finished in Alcantara and leather and features MSO bespoke colours and trim, along with a number of carbonfibre components. 

The mechanical elements of the one-off 720S are unchanged from the standard car’s, with a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 568lb ft and enables a 0-62mph time of 2.9sec. The machine has a top speed of 202mph with the roof down.
