720S Spec'ing another 720s

    My first 720 was a Launch Edition - beautiful spec, Memphis Red, a ton of carbon and Performance Package. Sticker was about $370K but I did not get to choose anything. If anyone is interested in a bad ass car it is for sale at McLaren of Sterling. PPF on most of the car and it still has the Kooks down pipes and exhaust but I still have the Sport Exhaust system and factory down pipes which are in great condition. Car is ~3,500 miles. It is going to list at $330K. Few thousand more and I throw in the luggage. :)

    On to the new spec, I was 99% going coupe but decided to switch to a spider. If I don't like it when it comes in then I get something else. I initially was spec'ing the launch color blue, I believe it is called Belize but after screwing with the configurator I am now leaning towards the following.

    Glacier White Performance
    New 10 spoke light wheels in stealth
    Mac Orange calipers, seat trim and seat belts
    Manual seats
    B&W
    360 Camera
    Carbon Paddles
    Std exhaust as I will replace with Kooks once again

    Any thoughts on colors? I built this online and it looks pretty darn sick to me.

    Order goes in tomorrow. Car will be here in April.

    Congrats and it’s going to be bad ass. I’m partial to the regular white. A few local friends have glacier and it looks great but regular white with the black accents just pops.

    Looking forward to seeing the new ride!

    Btw- how nuts are you going with the carbon? Heavy or minimal? That’s what adds the cost.

    Curious what took you from 99% for sure coupe to spider?

    You state if you don't like it 'you will get something else'...dealer stock coupe?

    Damn I might be interested. I’ve been living lean and investing heavy in my businesses (sold my Ferrari :(...) just have to see if a few things come together. I’ll keep you posted. Where are you located maybe I’ll fly out in early spring and check out the car?

    I like the regular white as well. I was really leaning towards that launch blue but when I saw the swatch it looks more green or aquamarine.

    A couple of things:

    1) I am definitely getting an LT which will be a coupe
    2) I figure the spider will sell easily if I use it for a month or two and not digging it as it will be March/April timeframe.

    Yes I could pick up a dealer stock car but would prefer to order one again while they sell mine.

    Makes sense indeed (LT for me as well). The wait would absolutely kill me but so fun to spec exactly what you want. Will be perfect for late spring delivery, hope you can do without one until then.

    Fun times and congrats again! Let us know if you changed anything on spec.

    Not crazy. The performance package come with a bunch of carbon and that's it. The palladium looks fine on the front splitter and rear valance. It lists around $350K as spec'd which is reasonable. I added the essentials options. The spider comes std with the lift BTW which is ~$2,500. There are some other things bundled in but I don't recall all of the details. I will post the build sheet when we finish up tomorrow.

    Interestingly, they told me that not one person traded their coupe on a spider. Everyone who ordered a spider kept their coupe. That is a testament to the coupe. They really want mine to sell, they only have a few new coupes there right now so the timing is pretty good.

    Funny enough I’m gonna get the LT as well. I wasn’t sure but honestly I don’t even drive my 488 anymore. Can’t even imagine the lt

    I am guessing it will be $400k+ so stuff that piggy bank. I needed some more motivation to work, the LT will be the carrot I dangle to get a couple other deals done.

    Went to the dealer to finalize my spec and changed the color to Cosmos Black with Mclaren Orange calipers, belts and interior. At the end of the day Memphis or Volcano Red are my favorite colors but I did not want to have the same color car. I kept looking back at my car which is an awesome spec and wondering if I did the right thing. I have a feeling I will be ordering another coupe - God help me.

    BOOM! APPROVED in Cosmos Black. NOW we are talking. I think the spider needs a darker color to 'harden' it and think it will look great.

    Did you get stealth pack?
    Did you stay with new 10 spoke or go 10 spoke super light?

    Like you said if you hate it (no matter color), then grab another coupe and await LT.

    Very happy for you!

    Thank you. Yes, stealth pack included and the new 10 spoke lightweight in stealth, with Mac Orange calipers and interior. I did not get the chromatic roof. I felt like it was something I wouldn't care about it. Top down - who cares. Top up, makes no difference to me. My current car has the carbon roof vs. glass which I preferred as well. Between the manual seats and non chromatic roof I bet my spec is not not much heavier than a coupe.

    Is your car also Cosmos? Can we get a pic of your interior please? Maybe a side shot as well. Thanks

    Cosmos is killer, mine is Onyx, but if I were ordering Cosmos is king.

    Will get some pics up Fri when back from paint correction and PPF. Interior is black, not color (black all around including calipers). I like your color pop especially with top down on interior.
