As you'd imagine, he ordered a very nice spec.
McLaren makes some of the world's best supercars, but aside from the iconic F1, it doesn't really have any classics yet. However, one of the brand's cars that is likely to be looked back on as a particularly special model is the McLaren 720S. It's so good that Ferrari had to rush the F8 Tributo so that the 488 GTB wouldn't be embarrassed by the British supercar, so we expect the 720S to be worth a lot in the future. Especially one with some sort of provenance, something McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt's example surely qualifies for.
It's finished in McLaren Special Operations Defined Paris Blue and is fitted with 10-spoke wheels boasting a stealthy anthracite shade of gray. It also wears black brake calipers, three exterior carbon fiber packages plus the MSO carbon pack. This means you get carbon on the diffuser, front splitter, roof, door mirror caps, rear fender intakes, lower rear bumper, rear deck, and engine cover. It was originally ordered with carbon racing seats, but we suspect that Flewitt found these a little too uncomfortable, as he later changed these for electric memory seats. Nevertheless, the carbon theme continues inside with the steering wheel, sill trims, and air vents.
Other notable features here include a Bowers & Wilkins 12-speaker sound system, surround-view camera, tracking system, nose lift system, and a full protective plastic film wrap, as well as a car cover. It maintains its original warranty too, which is valid until July next year and has just 10,903 miles on the clock. Brand new, this spec cost the equivalent of £306,000 (just under $420k at today's exchange rates). Fortunately, it's listed for far less than that and has an asking price of £165,000 ($226,295). If you're in the UK and are interested in it, you can find the listing on O'Kane Lavers' website.
