Two new McLaren 720S MSO specials to debut at Salon Privé
Every McLaren is special, but some more than others. The Track Theme and Pacific Theme 720S are the latest creations to be commissioned from McLaren Special Operations.
We are counting down the days until Salon Privé 2018 and hoping that the UK’s heatwave returns for this bespoke garden party themed event. As well as various concours throughout the weekend attracting some of the rarest cars to ever grace the road to Salon Privé, a couple of manufacturers are also planning to use the event for UK model debuts.
One such brand is McLaren with the latest creations from McLaren Special Operations.

McLaren Special Operations (MSO) are the dreamweavers of those who desire something unique. Every McLaren is special, but one that has been tailored to its new owner’s taste is even more special to them. MSO has shown what it is capable of with the 720S in the past, creating the stunning Velocity, but this pair of 720S’ might even upstage that special model.
The Track Theme and Pacific Theme MSO cars were first previewed at the Geneva International Motor Show last year, but the first of these MSO cars have now been delivered to their new homes. Both will be on display in the UK for the first time at Salon Privé.
The Track Theme car was commissioned by McLaren Manchester and is painted in Anniversary White, a bespoke colour inspire by some of McLaren’s Formula One cars. Hand painted black and orange details gives this 720S a distinctive appearance, as does the retro ‘speedy kiwi’ insignia on the door mirrors.
Carbon components have been given a satin finish to save weight and enhance the sporty look. This orange theme continues inside where you’ll find matching stitching that contrasts black Alcantara. A titanium harness bar replaces the standard steel unit for a 50% weight saving.
McLaren Glasgow commissioned the Pacific Theme, which uses the ocean it is named after as inspiration. Its beautiful Cerulean Blue paint, which actually features on today’s McLaren F1 car, is paired with a darker Estoril Blue shade for its intakes. The blue theme is continued in the cabin with blue inserts detailing the seats.
Ansar Ali, managing director of McLaren Special Operations said, 'We were overwhelmed by the reaction to the 720S Velocity at its unveiling and to bring to life two more versions of the MSO 720S Themes portfolio further demonstrates that MSO can fulfil any request to ensure that a car perfectly meets a customer’s vision.'
We look forward to seeing these MSO creations at Salon Privé next month.

I never thought much of the TR2 or TR3 until I drove on. It has the looks of a small Jaguar XK 120, but is actually so much more fun to drive. The feeling of being able to drive along a country road and being able to pick the flowers from the roadside without even getting out of the car is amazing. Exterior: The car looks stunning in this colour combination and these are the factory colours. An
