The auto started life as a McLaren 720S Performance and received an array of MSO Bespoke carbon fiber parts such as the front splitter, air intakes, rear bumper, roof panel, rear diffuser, side mirror arms, rear aero bridge, plus deck and engine covers. McLaren says that the rear wing took 30 hours to paint and finish, while the entire auto took 120 hours more than usual to produce thanks to its one of a kind look. There's also a smattering of gold touches on the inside too. The rest of the cabin receives black Alcantara and leather trim, along with a regular carbon-fibre interior upgrade pack. Making its official debut at the Dubai Motor Show, this McLaren 720S was commissioned as a bespoke creation. The gearshift paddles are satin gold-painted, and each door inner panel gets a satin gold-colored appliqué. Naturally, the graphics are in gold as well, and took 30 hours to complete. Aside from the colour and interior trim customisations, the vehicle is unchanged over the standard 720S.

McLaren says achievement was a key theme behind the commission, both for the British luxury carmaker itself and the United Arab Emirates and Gulf states themselves, which form a key client and shareholder base for the company. "This vehicle pays tribute to that".
