McLAREN SPECIAL OPERATIONS QUICK TO CELEBRATE LAUNCH OF NEW McLAREN SUPER SERIES WITH BESPOKE MSO 720S 'VELOCITY'
◾Bespoke McLaren 720S 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
◾Fusion of Volcano Red and Nerello Red paint colours showcases the ability of MSO to create uniquely sophisticated, bespoke McLaren cars
Just 24 hours after the new McLaren 720S was revealed in all its glory at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show, McLaren Automotive is highlighting the level to which buyers of its new Super Series will be able to personalise their car by unveiling a dramatic, bespoke 720S, created by McLaren Special Operations.
The McLaren 720S 'Velocity' by MSO signals the almost limitless scope of personalisation possibilities available to buyers who opt to commission their new Super Series car from McLaren Special Operations, the bespoke vehicle division of McLaren Automotive.
'The MSO mission is to fulfil customer desire for exclusivity in their choice of McLaren,' explained Ansar Ali, Managing Director of McLaren Special Operations. 'The lean, sculpted beauty of the new 720S provides the perfect starting point for owners to be creative and the specification of this MSO 720S 'Velocity' showcases a taste of the customisation options that are possible.'
The striking 'Velocity' paint theme comprises two pearlescent hues of red; a newly formulated shade, Nerello Red, is used on the front and upper body panels of the car – including on the red-tinted visual carbon fibre bonnet – and fades into a vivid Volcano Red that covers the sides and rear of the car.
