McLaren Automotive has revealed an ultra limited-edition series of just three new 720S commissions by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), in partnership with the McLaren Sydney and Melbourne dealerships.
Available exclusively in Australia, the Daniel Ricciardo Edition 720S by MSO series has been designed to celebrate the McLaren Formula 1 driver, a timely reveal following McLaren’s success at the Italian Grand Prix, resulting in Ricciardo’s race win.
“Daniel Ricciardo’s relentless determination and pursuit of excellence are qualities that perfectly reflect the McLaren ethos,” MSO commercial executive director George Biggs said.
“Following McLaren’s outstanding performance with a landmark one-two finish for the team at the Italian Grand Prix, it’s the perfect time to reveal this limited series in celebration of the Aussie driver,” he added.
“The 720S is a fitting model to celebrate Daniel’s achievements and we’re delighted to see it adorned with the Australian flag crafted by MSO.”
Limited to just three vehicles, as a nod to Ricciardo’s racing number – 3 – each example is finished in Papaya spark and Burton blue – the colours used on the McLaren Formula 1 2021 MCL35M race car.
Further distinct features include carbon fibre sills inscribed with Ricciardo’s signature, ‘One of Three’ dedication plates, Ricciardo’s race number 3 etched on the iconic 720S dihedral doors, and the Australian flag adorning the front haunches.
“One of the great privileges of driving for McLaren is getting behind the wheel of many of the brand’s exhilarating supercars and while each offers something unique, the 720S is the absolute benchmark.” McLaren Racing F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo said.
The trio of vehicles is due to arrive in Australia in Q4 of this year. Further information, including pricing, is available from your local McLaren dealership in Sydney or Melbourne.
