A bespoke McLaren 720S was auctioned for charity at the Naples Winter Wine Festival, raising $650,000 for the Naples Children and Education Foundation.
Created by McLaren Special Operations, the one-off 720S is finished in an MSO-exclusive Nerello Red over a Saddle Brown leather interior. The paint was named after the Nerello Mascalese grape that grows in the Mascali area of Castaia, Sicily.
Other unique features include the extensive use of carbon fiber inside and out, a custom leather steering wheel with Carbon Black leather grips and a dedication plate that marks the special commission of the British supercar.
“The McLaren 720S is an extraordinary vehicle – in fact demand exceeds supply, which makes it even more exciting for us to be able to offer this MSO 720S to the winning bidder, who will be able to take delivery immediately,” said Tony Joseph, President of McLaren North America.
“The work done by the Naples Children & Education Foundation to help transform the lives of children is so important and we are honored to donate a vehicle to this cause,” he added.
The powertrain of the one-off 720S remains unchanged, meaning a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with 710hp and 568lb-ft of torque. 0-60mph takes 2.8 seconds while 0-124mph comes in a blistering 7.8 seconds.
