This Special Edition McLaren 720S Was Built For The Track

Special Edition / 3 Comments

Specifically, Europe's race tracks.

The McLaren 720S - with its 710 horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine - is already more car than you can use on the public road, which is why most owners will opt for a race track. We know McLaren is working on a new Longtail version of the 720 with a greater track focus but the company's MSO division already knows how to cook up some track-bred special editions.

MSO previously created a one-of-thee special edition called the Spa 68 Edition, built specifically for a dealership in Brussels. McLaren has now revealed a new run of special editions called the MSO Apex Collection. Just like the Spa Edition, these cars are all designed for Europe's race tracks.

McLaren will build five different versions of the Apex Collection based on British, German, French, Belgian, and Italian Grand Prix circuits. Only 15 cars will be built in total, each equipped with the Track Package. Pricing starts at £288,813 (around $356,812) in the UK and includes a VIP experience at a Grand Prix track with an FIA Formula 1 Paddock Pass.

The Apex Great Britain Edition will include two right-hand-drive cars and two left-hand-drive cars. McLaren says the '110 mph' marking on the door sill refers to the apex speed in the high-speed Abbey corner on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. Likewise, Apex Germany Edition will include one right-hand-drive car and two left-hand-drive cars with an 85 mph marking referring to the apex speed in the Mobil 1 curve at the Hockenheimring.

The Apex France car will have a 104 mph marking, referring to the apex speed in the Signes curve at the end of the Mistral Straight on the Circuit Paul Ricard; the Apex Belgium car includes a 103 mph reference to the apex speed of Eau Rouge section at the Spa-Francorchamps track; and the 90 mph marking on the Italy car refers to the Ascari chicane before the Parabolica on the Monza circuit.

If you are a diehard fan of any of these F1 tracks, you should attempt to get your hands on one of these Apex cars. In addition to a VIP experience at the track, each car will also come with a Pirelli Hot Laps experience - a lap of the track with McLaren professional driver at the wheel, giving a first-hand glimpse of those apex speeds.
