Never let it be said that McLaren doesn't bring anything attention grabbing to Pebble Beach. The one-off 720S was created for United States entrepreneur, philanthropist and vehicle enthusiast Michael Fux, who spec'd their auto in an eye-catching purple paint finish. Named Fux Fuchsia, the colour was created for the owner by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and subsequently redeveloped by MSO. Fuchsia coloring has also been applied to the lightweight wheels, as well as inside the doors, the rear-view mirror and as a pinstripe on the steering wheel. Also on offer are white alcantara floor mats white stitching, completing the theme. Other features include stealth grey window surrounds, a stealth grey exhaust and various carbon fiber components from the MSO catalog. Indeed McLaren's Sales and Marketing Director Jolyon Nash talks of "virtually limitless possibilities" and "the most demanding customer requirements" in the press material, suggesting that the sky really is the limit as far as personalisation goes.

No mechanical changes have been made, so it is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 like other 720S cars, sending 710bhp to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. For this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, McLaren unveiled a custom 720S made for U.S. collector Michael Fux, and it'll be the only one painted this color in the world. For what it's worth, a McLaren 720S in Luxury spec will run you about $280,500.

"MSO provides McLaren owners with virtually limitless possibilities to tailor a auto exactly to their needs and tastes - there are opportunities from unique paint colours and finishes all the way up to complete vehicles created to individual specification", said Jolyon Nash, McLaren Automotive's executive director for global sales and marketing. McLaren Chief Executive Officer, Mike Flewitt, presented the vehicle to Fux in Monterey, ahead of it being displayed on the "Concept Lawn" on Concours Sunday.
