Oz-only McLaren 720S Ricciardo Edition revealed

McLaren takes the wraps off Ricciardo Edition 720S, just three made for Australia

27 Sep 2021

MCLAREN has revealed its Australia-only Daniel Ricciardo Edition 720S, specially commissioned by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) in collaboration with McLaren dealerships in Melbourne and Sydney to celebrate the Australian McLaren Formula 1 driver.

The 720S includes an autographed carbon-fibre sill, unique race number three door design, Australian flag motif, and is finished in the same Papaya Spark orange and Burton blue paint as Ricciardo’s MCL35M F1 car.

Slated to arrive in locally later this year, the McLaren Daniel Ricciardo Edition 720S by MSO was revealed to celebrate McLaren’s latest success at the Italian Grand Prix, Ricciardo’s first race win with the team.

“Daniel Ricciardo’s relentless determination and pursuit of excellence are qualities that perfectly reflect the McLaren ethos,” said McLaren commercial executive director George Biggs.

“Following McLaren’s outstanding performance with a landmark one-two finish for the team at the Italian Grand Prix, it’s the perfect time to reveal this limited series in celebration of the Aussie driver.

“The 720S is a fitting model to celebrate Daniel’s achievements and we’re delighted to see it adorned with the Australian flag.”

Ricciardo is understandably delighted with having a special-edition McLaren named in his honour, saying the occasion is one of the team perks.

“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,” said Mr Ricciardo.

Local pricing is yet to be confirmed. McLaren says the McLaren Daniel Ricciardo Edition 720S by MSO will be available for purchase shortly.
