You can’t have enough black, especially when it involves a McLaren.

The MSO 720S Stealth Theme from McLaren Special Operations ensures at least one McLaren 720S stands out from crowd.

The 720S can be ordered in one of three spec levels, with MSO Defined options among additional features offered.

There are further opportunities to personalise the car however through MSO’s Bespoke services, where paint and interior stitching can be developed as themes to create a car that is literally — one-of-a-kind.

Stealth was one of the bespoke themes visualised for the the car on its global debut at the 2017 Geneva motor Show.

The Velocity, Track and Pacific themes have already been produced as bespoke orders.

The MSO 720S Stealth Theme was commissioned by McLaren London to provide more purposeful visual impact than a standard 720S in Performance specification.

That’s difficult to comprehend, I know.

Stealth brings Sarthe Grey paint — inspired by the McLaren F1 GTR that was victorious at Le Mans in 1995 – with contrasting Vermillion Red to accentuate the lines of the body.

Red detailing on the front of the car and the bonnet and extending back along the bodysides to the rear deck, was hand-painted by the master craftsmen and craftswomen at McLaren Special Operations — a process that took nearly 200 hours.

There are also red accents on the 10-Spoke Super Lightweight alloys, which are finished in MSO Bespoke Satin Black with the outer rim and a single spoke in contrasting Vermillion Red.

MSO Bespoke Satin Finish Visual Carbon Fibre components enhance the exterior, with the Front Air Intakes, Door Mirror Casings, Door Mirror Arms, Rear Aero Bridges, Rear Deck and Service Cover and Rear Fender Air Intakes — all made of lightweight material.

MSO Bespoke red leather and Apex Red stitching have also been applied to the fascia, door inners and seats.
