My first McLaren is in the garage!!

It's been several months of posting, looking, driving, contemplating and a decade of dreaming and I finally have a McLaren!! Thanks to all of you on the forum for your opinions and expertise. I apologize as the clouds came over as I was taking the pics. Getting a PPF and HRE P104SCs in the next few weeks. I was also very fortunate to be invited to a track day at Thermal later this month, so I'll be shipping my car out to SoCal for a week or two of fun! While I'm in London in September, my dealer is also arranging a trip to the museum. The cerulean blue is absolutely stunning to see in person (like so many of the colors on the 720!) Time to start putting some miles on this beauty!

Iíve been looking for a few months and have only seen two cars for sale in this color. The original owner of this car specíd it with MSO deviated blue stitching interior. Itís a very clean look. Surprised he specíd it with the basic wheels, but works for me since Iím replacing them anyway.

Amazing color--the interior must look fantastic with the blue contrast stitching as well. Would love to see more pictures when you get a chance between driving sessions!

Yes it was. I believe the original owner purchased this car to drive until his Senna arrived.

Thanks! I really like it for the visual appeal and uniqueness. However, the brushed clear wheels and window tint will really complete the exterior look. I'll post some quality pics once the new wheels are on.
