A one-of-a-kind McLaren 720S created by the British luxury supercar manufacturer has been auctioned for charity at the Naples Winter Wine Festival, raising $650,000 for the Naples Children & Education Foundation. Developed by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the bespoke 720S in Luxury specification features a range of additional options, including extensive use of carbon fiber on both the exterior and interior of the car. Additional MSO-specific content includes a Nerello Red exterior paint finish (named after the Nerello Mascalese grape from the Mascali area of Castaia, Sicily, don't you know); a Saddle Brown leather interior with Nerello stitching; and a custom steering wheel featuring leather and Carbon Black leather grips. A grape motif is featured throughout the vehicle and a bespoke dedication plate marks the specialty commission.
