A one-off McLaren 720S has been unveiled, created for renowned car collector Michael Fux, known for building a multimillion-pound business empire around the sale of memory foam mattresses after eloping to the US from Cuba at the age of 15.
Until now, Fux has collected around 130 luxury supercars, many of which are bespoke designs according to his specifications and styles. This collection includes-
- 25 Ferraris
- 12 Porsches
- 11 Aston Martins
- Six Rolls-Royces
- A McLaren 12c
- A 12C Spider
- A P1
Famous in the states for his philanthropic exploits, Fux regularly raises money for charity by displaying his cars to the public.
His McLaren, is in keeping with Fux’s penchant for eye-catching designs and features a fuchsia-coloured paint finish with a white leather interior.
The exterior colour on this model is named Fux Fuchsia and was originally created by Rolls-Royce for him before being redeveloped by MSO for the McLaren.
Other details include the fuchsia colouring on the wheels and inside the doors. Otherwise, white dominates from the leather to the stitching.
The exhaust and windows surrounds are finished in grey and some areas of the car are highlighted with carbon-fibre finish.
Whilst no mechanical changes have been made, it’s powered by a twin turbocharged 4.0 litre V8 like other 720S cars. This sends 710bhp to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The car was presented to Fux by McLaren Automotive boss Mike Flewitt at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. However, no price was revealed, though it is predicted to have been substantially more than the £218,020 which was charged for 720S in its Luxury spec.
MSO grew revenue by £143 last year, with an underlying booming demand for high-end buyers to finish their cars with one-off features and designs.
“MSO provides McLaren owners with virtually limitless possibilities to tailor a car exactly to their needs and tastes – there are opportunities from unique paint colours and finishes all the way up to complete vehicles designed to individual specification,” said Jolyon Nash, McLaren Automotive’s executive director for global sales and marketing.
