MSO Comes Up With New Shade Of White, Demoed By 570S Spider 7
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in mclaren, McLaren 570S, MSO on 12 7th, 2017

Dubbed ‘Muriwai White’ the new color pays homage to the New Zealand coastal community, Muriwai, where Bruce McLaren won his first race at the age of 15.

It’s also the name chosen for his family house in England, which was panted in a blueish-white color, much like the one you see on this McLaren 570S Spider.

MSO’s Muriwai White paint is white with blue flecks, inspired by the whitewashed walls, deep blue doors and shutters of the old McLaren homestead.

Bruce McLaren’s daughter, Amanda McLaren herself worked with MSO in order to develop this color, before returning to her childhood home in the first 570S Spider to be finished in Muriwai White.

“Muriwai was always special to my father; the exotic name as much as the house. Forty-two kilometers’ northwest of Auckland, it’s where he grew up and won his first hill climb, aged 15, at the wheel of an Ulster Austin which remains in McLaren’s heritage collection in Woking.”

“I’m sure my parents would have loved this ‘Muriwai’ color, and they would be so proud of the 570S Spider and the other McLaren road cars, as that is where my father saw the future of the company,” said Amanda McLaren.

Moving forward, MSO will be offering Muriwai White as an ‘a la carte option’, available on any McLaren road car.


McLaren’s Bringing This Custom Black & Gold 720S To Dubai 14
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Dubai Motor Show, mclaren, McLaren 720S, MSO on 11 14th, 2017

The Persian Gulf is a vital market for exotic automakers – not least for McLaren, which is out to make a splash at this year’s Dubai Motor Show with this one-of-a-kind 720S.

Commissioned by a local client, this 720S has been extensively personalized by McLaren Special Operations with a satin black paintjob and gold trim. But that’s just the start.

The rear wing is inscribed with an Arabic translation of a quote from the company’s namesake founder Bruce McLaren: “Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.” The script is stylized to emulate the Dubai skyline, and like the wheels and interior trim, is done up in gold tone to stand out from the matte black background.

The buyer also specified an array of carbon-fiber components, including the front splitter, air intakes, roof panel, wing mirror arms, engine cover, and rear deck, wing, bumper, and diffuser. And like the legendary McLaren F1, the engine bay is lined in gold heat shielding – actual 24-karat gold, in this case.

Inside there’s even more carbon and gold trim pieces to go with the black leather and Alcantara upholstery, with a “1 of 1” plaque to identify this as a unique creation. The vehicle will be on display until the owner takes delivery at the close of the show from McLaren Dubai.
