McLaren Debuts Fuchsia MSO 720S

  • Pink Mc Laren 720S by MSO revealed at Pebble Beach

This isn't the first McLaren owned by Fux. But this one is a bespoke "Fux Fuchsia".

Some of Fux's previous Rolls-Royces have come in these custom colors (each officially named using his name): Fux Blue was his Pebble reveal a year ago.

Over the weekend, we told you about a McLaren 720S done up in a bespoke color at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, an eye-popping fuchsia that McLaren dubbed "Fux Fuchsia".

Named "Fux Fuchsia", the color was created for Michael Fux by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited and subsequently redeveloped by MSO; McLaren says the auto enthusiast will retain exclusive rights to its use on any other McLaren vehicle. He commissioned the vehicle through McLaren's MSO division and the paint is based on a bespoke Rolls-Royce color that was modified by MSO. The colour has been "redeveloped" by McLaren Special Operations and Fux retains exclusive rights to use it on any other McLaren vehicle.

In addition to the "Fux Fuchsia" color, Fux had MSO add the distinctive shade to a line on the lightweight wheels, on the door appliques inside the auto, as well as pinstriping on the steering wheel and rear-view mirror cover.

Fuchs is well-known in classic auto circles as a collector of brightly coloured exotica; he already has a McLaren 12C in the maker's signature orange, a purple 12C Spider and a bright metallic green P1. White Alcantara floor mats, again with white stitching, complete the theme.

Trim elements inside and out are carbon-fibre components from the MSO Defined catalogue, and the exhaust and window surrounds are finished in satin grey.

Unfortunately, McLaren is keeping the price of this MSO 720S close to the vest, only stating the 720S' base price of $288,845.

There's a lot more surface area on a Rolls than on a McLaren, so on a day when we're supposed to save our retinas by not looking directly at the solar eclipse, you might consider wearing your eclipse goggles to view the gallery above.
