The car will be on display at this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours.
Pretty in pink – or should we say fuchsia – is no longer an understatement. At the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, McLaren unveiled a one-off 720S finished in a wild "Fux Fuchsia" paint, created by McLaren’s Special Operations division for a well-respected collector within the McLaren community.
The build was commissioned by entrepreneur and philanthropist, Michael Fux, thus the aptly named finish. Fux owns three other McLarens, including a P1. CEO Mike Flewitt presented the supercar in Monterey to its new owner ahead of its display on the "Concept Lawn" at the Pebble Beach Concours this Sunday.
"Challenging the art of the possible to meet the most demanding customer requirements and then delivering beyond expectations are integral to the service that McLaren Special Operations offers," commented Jolyon Nash, McLaren Automotive Executive Director, Global Sales and Marketing.
"MSO provides McLaren owners with virtually limitless possibilities to tailor a car exactly to their needs and tastes; unique paint colours and finishes, custom leather and stitching and exotic materials are all available within a bespoke commission, while beyond this there are opportunities all the way up to complete vehicles designed to individual specification."
The custom finish is paired with contrasting platinum-finished wheels with fuchsia accents. The interior wears a white leather and Alcantara mix, with fuchsia pinstriping on everything from the steering wheel, to door panels, to the rear-view mirror. Along with the bespoke color elements both inside and out, MSO has finished the exhaust and window surrounds in a Stealthy Grey finish, with carbon fiber components from the MSO Defined range throughout.
This is the fourth McLaren that Mr. Fux will add to his collection, following a 12C finished in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spider finished in bespoke purple, and the aforementioned P1, finished in bespoke green.

A truly striking, one-of-kind McLaren 720S makes its public debut this weekend at the illustrious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, California. The Bespoke division of McLaren Special Operations crafted the unique McLaren supercar, to the specification of entrepreneur and philanthropist, Michael Fux. McLaren Chief Executive Officer, Mike Flewitt, presented the car to Mr Fux in Monterey, ahead of it being displayed on the ‘Concept Lawn’ on Concours Sunday,
The exterior paint colour immediately identifies the car as being designed to order, a service available to all McLaren customers through McLaren Special Operations. Named ‘Fux Fuchsia’, the colour was created for Mr Fux by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited and subsequently redeveloped by MSO; Mr Fux will retain exclusive rights to its use on any other McLaren vehicle.
“Challenging the art of the possible to meet the most demanding customer requirements and then delivering beyond expectations are integral to the service that McLaren Special Operations offers,” commented Jolyon Nash, McLaren Automotive Executive Director, Global Sales and Marketing. “MSO provides McLaren owners with virtually limitless possibilities to tailor a car exactly to their needs and tastes; unique paint colours and finishes, custom leather and stitching and exotic materials are all available within a bespoke commission, while beyond this there are opportunities all the way up to complete vehicles designed to individual specification.”
The distinctive hue also features as a detail on the lightweight wheels, contrasting with the platinum finish of the alloy. Inside the car, door appliqués, a pinstripe on the steering wheel and even the rear-view mirror are all in body colour, providing highlights of fuchsia in a cabin that is otherwise resplendent from headlining to cup holder – and almost everything in between – in MSO Bespoke white leather with white stitching. White Alcantara® floor mats, again with white stitching, complete the theme.
In addition to the bespoke elements of the vehicle, the exhaust and window surrounds are in Stealth grey finish and carbon fibre components from the MSO Defined range have also been specified. These can be ordered on any McLaren, of any colour.
Michael Fux is renowned as a collector of highly desirable, rare cars and has previously commissioned a McLaren 12C in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spider in bespoke purple and a McLaren P1™ in bespoke green.
