The centerpiece of the McLaren exhibit at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show was a McLaren 720S inspired by Bruce McLaren. The 720 bears a quote from McLaren, written in gold Arabic, on its rear wing. The quote states, \u201cLife is measured in achievement, not in years alone.\u201d The full quote is even more inspirational:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cTo do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better cannot be done foolhardy. It would be a waste of life to do nothing with one\u2019s ability, for I feel that life is measured in achievement, not years alone.\u201d (Bruce McLaren, From the Cockpit, 1964)\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you measure life by achievements, then this 720S belongs on the list. A plaque inside the car lets you know that this is a \u201c1 of 1\u201d MSO commission. It\u2019s gold interior components as well as its gold-colored alloy wheels and 24-carat gold engine heatshield contrast perfectly with its satin black finish. The 720S sports a 4.0 V8 twin-turbocharged engine that tops out at 200km\/h (124 mph) in just 7.8 seconds (it\u2019s top speed is 341 km\/h or 212 mph).\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s hard not to be inspired by the McLaren quote\u2014that\u2019s if you can catch up to the car long enough to read its rear wing.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
