In honor of McLaren’s 1st F1 victory, the 720S Spa 68 Collection was born. McLaren Special Operations (MSO) was commissioned by a Brussels dealership to build 3 models for sale. The McLaren 720S Spa 68 is a stunning car in MSO Bespoke Anniversary Orange paint. The rear wheel arch has a silver tracing of Spa-Francorchamps, where the victory took place. Bruce McLaren, the founder, won his fourth F1 victory at this event. But, it was the first ever victory under the McLaren manufacturer name. Furthermore, the car has text written on it stating “1st McLaren F1 Victory Belgium Grand Prix 9th June 1968 – Bruce McLaren”. Obviously, this is a straightforward statement of the reason for the model.

The McLaren 720S Spa 68 Collection commemorates one of McLaren’s largest milestones in it’s racing career. But, Bruce McLaren was obviously not driving a 720S in 1968. He was behind the wheel of a McLaren M7A, a historic vehicle for the company. This car had the signature papaya orange livery, that MSO mimics today. On the current Spa 68 model, there are satin black split five-spoke wheels. Obviously, high-quality tires meant for track fit these wheels. Finally, the interior is a mix of black Alcantara with orange stitching. McLaren sure does know how to make cars unique!

MSO has another hit with the McLaren 720S Spa 68 Collection. This vehicle pays tribute to Bruce McLaren’s tremendous M7A victory at F1 Spa-Francorchamps. With only 3 models for sale, 2 have already been sold by the dealership. So, if there is enough cash in the bank, now may be the time to contact them for a settlement. Unless, it is already too late – which it may be. Overall, the Spa 68 is an awesome vehicle that’ll be another collectible piece for any McLaren fan.
