Stunning car.

I must say the 765 is a gorgeous machine and your spec is killer.

May I ask please, to get the carbon stripe do they make you spec the hole car in carbon or just those panels with the striping?

I love the CF stripe!

I loved having Volcano Orange; just such an amazing colour that changes shade all through the day and night.

Stunning 765 you have there.

Thanks so much guys for the positivity smile

It's only necessary to have visual carbon on panels that show a visual carbon element. MSO don't force you to take anything more than you want. There is a benefit in lightweighting however, and I have gone to extreme lengths to lightwieght MSO 1. I have however allowed myself a few creature comforts to make the car livable on road. The most obvious and heaviest being air con.

Agree about Volcano Orange. It's always been my favourite McLaren colour.

I always loved my old 720S in Azores Orange, but whenever I parked next to Volcano Orange car, I always knew what colour MSO 1 would be smile

Really nice car and great pics.

Good to hear that Sy is still doing this stuff - is it Coldwire Films? I remember when he doorstepped the head of Lambo (Winkelmann) and asked him some incredibly stupid question, the lad has come on since those days.

It's no longer coldwire, but Drivers Union. Sy has indeed come a very long way since those days smile

Sadly I didn't get to do any local shopping, as we were so busy filming until the light went. Stunning location.

Blimey, that brings back memories. The first interview I ever did in fact and we were only allowed to ask 3 questions and it wasn't me asking the questions by the way biggrin

I've used the lift at least 30 times in the time I've had the car smile

To be fair, I've driven it down some terrible roads.

Cheddar Gorge turning areas needed it frequently, but one Kent lane was truly horrible. It didn't ground, but I was driving down the 1 mile lane extremely carefully. My friend whose Golf GTi I was following grounded hard twice, but I think he wasn't really taking care.

Great to see the car up in Northumberland last week. I was driving the stray Storm Grey 650s that joined the pack on route down to Stanhope.

Car looks even better in the flesh:-)

Thank you smile It was a fantastic event. 32 multi-coloured McLarens on a blast between the borders. Loved it!

Nice! The hypercars class (Pursuit of Speed) was won by a stunning Koenigsegg. No shame in that for the 2 McLarens in the class (a beautiful SLR + mine), which were punching hard above their weight.
