Thanks smile.

Despite all the mud slinging, I have always maintained that they are fantastic cars and would own another - seems that now is the time...

Exciting times, congratulations, it will be difficult not to be impressed once you start driving it properly. Exceptional value for what you get.

Looking forward to see pics and updates.

MOC is well worth it too.

Edit: just realised that you are a serial owner. Hope all is good with this one!

Congratulations! Is it the Stealth model from New Forest? Great looking car if so.

Indeed it is and Thanks, although deal done through Ascot due to relationship and the car being owned by McLaren.

Congrats; thats a stunning looking 720!

Any idea of the story behind it, why they only made 3 and are they all right hand drive?

Thanks 355.

Not sure why they only made 3 but this is the only RHD one in existence. The fact it's still owned by McLaren and failed to sell for list is probably an indication as to why they only made a few as you could have speced one the same bar the red "hand-painted" stripes and saved the best part of 60-70k.

The only annoying thing is it doesn't have the carbon bumpers however, I suppose they can be retrofitted at a later date.

Drooling over the car and noticed something: The McLaren logo between the exhausts and on the bonnet have the pre-facelift red ‘swoosh’ which I understand was phased out in June or a July 2018. My January 2018 720S has the same red swoosh logo. I wonder if the original red logo was specifically retained on your car to complement the red pinstripes. Attention to detail.

Lovely car! Hope to see it in the flesh at some point.

Thank you.

I think your right regarding the red swoosh being retained to compliment the red pin striping, if you look at the Autocar release information you can see that the swoosh is silver but I'm assuming in build they opted for red.

Haha, I bore easily and having had 6 over the past 18 months I've exhausted most of their model range. wink

Very very jealous. Can't wait for pics!
Hoping to pick up one myself eventually. I've still not even had chance to look around one in detail. I should really get over to a dealer.
