McLaren 720S Spa 68 Collection Honors Founder's Grand Prix Victory

These three particular 720S models were created for a Brussels dealership

McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has been, ahem, Woking overtime to produce even more variants. In this case, they're three orange 720S supercars that honor the marque's first Formula 1 grand prix victory at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium a half-century ago.

The historic win saw company founder Bruce McLaren at the wheel of a McLaren M7A with a signature Papaya Orange livery. It was his fourth F1 win but his first victory driving his own car; doing so made McLaren the third driver to win a Grand Prix in a race car of his own design.

The McLaren 720S Spa 68 Collection was commissioned by a dealership in Brussels, Belgium, and they all sport a fresh coat of MSO Bespoke Anniversary Orange paint with a silver tracing of the Spa-Francorchamps course next to the rear wheel arch. The track outline is also embroidered in orange onto the headrest.

There's also a branded key fob in orange and a numbered dedication plaque to show off at the next cars and coffee, while carbon-fiber sill covers are inscribed with "1st McLaren F1 victory Belgian Grand Prix 9th June 1968—Bruce McLaren" in orange type. The cars roll on Satin Black split five-spoke wheels.

The cabin is lined with black Alcantara with orange stitching on the seats, dash, center console, and door panels. While these orange beauties are all juiced up and ready to roll, two of the cars have already been sold.

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock. The Nurburgring serves as a standard by which most automakers set their sights. It arms internet debate specialists with numbers and comparisons by

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that. Today, a decade later, he’s moved on to his
