McLaren Automotive has designed a special edition of the 720S supercar in honour of racing star Daniel Ricciardo.
Created by the bespoke McLaren Special Operations (MSO) division, the customised supercar celebrates the achievements of the Australian Formula 1 driver.
It follows Ricciardo’s first victory for the team earlier this month in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
Officially known as the Daniel Ricciardo Edition 720S by MSO, McLaren plans to produce only three examples – and solely for Australian customers.
Being limited to a trio of cars is a direct nod to Ricciardo’s ‘3’ racing number, which makes an appearance on the dihedral doors of the 720S.
All examples will be painted in Papaya Spark orange, with contrasting Burton Blue details. These are the same colours used on the 2021 McLaren Racing MCL35M Formula 1 race car.
Inside, a commemorative ‘One of Three’ dedication plate can be found, along with plenty of bright Papaya trim.
Shoey not included
Other additions include an Australian flag on the side of the 720S, along with carbon fibre side sills signed by the man himself.
On sale later this year, McLaren has not yet confirmed prices for the 720hp mid-engined supercar.
Ricciardo commented that: “One of the great privileges of driving for McLaren is getting behind the wheel of many of the brand’s exhilarating supercars. And while each offers something unique, the 720S is the absolute benchmark.”
It certainly makes for an improvement on the Ricciardo Edition Koleos SUV, launched during his time at Renault…
