It Took McLaren 260 Hours To Make This Blue And Black Paint Scheme

At March’s Geneva Motor Show, McLaren stunned everyone in attendance with a special 720S Spider customized by MSO.

The most obvious point of difference between the car presented and all others was the paint and as this video explains, it took an extraordinary 260 hours for it to be applied to the skin of the British supercar.

McLaren started out with a 720S Spider painted in Meteorite Grey and then mixed together Cerulean Blue, Burton Blue, and Abyss Black together to form a new color dubbed ‘Corilois’. This deep shade of blue was then applied to the lower sections of the bodywork and was designed to provide effects which mimic how the car moves through the air.

Beauty doesn’t come cheap

The car manufacturer confirmed to us at the Geneva Motor Show that the 720S Spider by MSO presented had more than $200,000 worth of custom touches and that ordering a 720S exactly like this would cost about $523,000. McLaren hasn’t said how much of that price is made up by the paint scheme itself but we’re told this lick of paint is worth somewhere in the region of six-figures.

That’s a lot of money but when you consider how wealthy many McLaren owners are, it’s not that crazy.

Would we pay that much? Probably not. After all, an entry-level 720S Spider is more than impressive enough thanks to its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine pumping out 710 hp and 568 lb-ft (769 Nm) of torque, allowing the car to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.9 seconds.
