McLaren 720S Limited edition 2019

McLaren’s impressive line of supercars wouldn’t have been possible without the company’s past success in Formula One racing. To emphasize that point, McLaren has cooked up a special edition of the 720S to commemorate its first F1 victory, which took place more than 50 years ago.

On that day Bruce McLaren got the better of Chris Amon, John Surtees and Jackie Stewart in a car of his own design and construction, sporting the now famous Papaya Orange livery that was brought back for the slightly less successful 2018 F1 season.

To set them apart from the standard 212mph car, MSO has also given the special editions bespoke satin black wheels and contrast stitching in a McLaren Orange thread.

There’s no word on any mechanical changes, so owners will have to make do with 710bhp and 568lb ft of torque – although that’s no bad thing considering the 720S one of the most accomplished supercars we’ve ever driven.

A marketing ploy this car maybe, but that first F1 win 50 years ago led to eight constructors’ and 12 drivers’ championship titles for McLaren. But MSO, try and think a bit more out the box next time, yeah?

The new McLaren 720S convertible can be seen in any of the 37 different body colors that are available. These exterior shades include the new Belize Blue and Aztec Gold as well as the re-introduced Heritage color, Supernova Silver. 14 McLaren Special Operations (MSO) colors are offered, including Muriwai White and Papaya Spark, both shades inspired by McLaren’s brand history, and new colors like Ludus Blue and Cirrus Grey.

The 1968 Belgian Grand Prix was special not only because it was the site of the McLaren team’s first F1 victory, but because founder Bruce McLaren drove the winning car. He became only the third driver to win an F1 race in a car of his own design. This was also Bruce McLaren’s fourth and final F1 race win before his death in a crash in 1970.

No mechanical changes were made. The 720S uses a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, which produces 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. McLaren quotes a 0 to 62 mph time of 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 212 mph.

50 years ago, a new Formula 1 team called McLaren scored its first big win. The victory occurred during the 1968 Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps, with Bruce McLaren driving the now-famous orange McLaren M7A racer. To honor that milestone, the company which bears the founder’s name offers a limited-edition version of the 720S wearing a similar shade of orange, among other things. It’s officially called the 720 S Spa 68 Collection, and it’s indeed a very limited-edition model. Only three will be built.

Only three will be built. McLaren doesn’t explain why just three cars are slated for production, but it is officially the most exclusive edition to ever come from MSO. Furthermore, McLaren says two are already claimed so as of this writing, only one car is left to order.
