MSOooh, Ahhh: McLaren Wastes No Time with Custom 720S Velocity
Just one day after McLaren released the second-generation Super Series 720S into the wild, the firm added sprinkles, chocolate syrup, as well as cherries on top by bringing a custom 720S to the Geneva auto show: a McLaren Special Operations (MSO) product named Velocity.
After generating its debut in orange as well as light-blue colors, the 720S Velocity stuns in a brand-new ethereal pearlescent dress in two shades: Nerello Red on the front as well as upper Centeng panels as well as the tinted carbon-fiber hood, plus Volcano Red on the sides as well as rear. Velocity is actually one of 5 displays of what the MSO department is actually capable of doing with the brand-new supercar, although which’s the only physical example at the stand. Others, dubbed GT, Pacific, Track, as well as Stealth, are shown on video screens.
The paint is actually just the beginning for the Velocity. the automobile’s two-tone look comes via metallic bronze lightweight aluminum wheels, as well as carbon-fiber accents are everywhere. Gloss carbon weave was implemented for the hood, the rear deck vent, the engine cover, as well as the rear aero bridge. The same material, although having a satin finish, makes up the sill covers as well as the front vents.

The Indoor carries on the red-as well as-black theme with Carbon Black suedelike trim as well as Harissa Red leather. Harissa accents on the dash, steering wheel, doors, as well as contrast stitching tie everything together; exposed carbon-fiber pieces carry the external themes inside. which level of made-to-order treatment is actually not cheap, even by supercar standards. which Velocity edition is actually priced around $400,000; compare which with the U.K. base cost for the base 720S, which is actually about $250,000. For which much extra cash, we might choose a lightly used 12C Spider for daily driving as well as sunny days instead—although we’re thinking “either/or” when the market for such cars is actually full of people who can afford both.
