The MSO commission features a quote by Bruce McLaren, translated into Arabic and stylized to match the Dubai skyline.

McLaren Special Operations has revealed its latest one-off creation, a black and gold 720S commissioned for a customer in Dubai.The coupe features a unique satin Zenith Black exterior finish with golden accents, including gold-finished wheels and matching interior components.

Designers placed a quote from company founder Bruce McLaren on the rear wing, translated into Arabic script in gold lettering stylized to match the Dubai skyline.

"To do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better cannot be foolhardy," the full quote reads. "It would be a waste of life to do nothing with one's ability, for I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone."

Dubai is a particularly important market for McLaren and other exclusive automakers. The British marque says the UAE and surrounding region is home to many of its customers and shareholders.
