But the highlight of the vehicle is the rear wing that features a famous Bruce McLaren quote painted in gold Arabic script stylized to resemble the Dubai skyline. As if that wasn't enough, the heat shield is also made from 24-carat gold, in a lovely nod to the company's 25-year-old F1 supercar.

In total, the car's bespoke treatment added 120 hours to the usual production time for a McLaren 720S. The decoration took 30 hours to complete, using specially-made stencils.

Inside, this unique 720S features black Alcantara and black leather trim further complemented by MSO Defined carbon fibre sill panels, fascia vents and steering wheel, in addition to a regular carbon fibre interior upgrade pack.

In the framework of the motor show in Dubai showed the original version of the supercar McLaren 720S with the aphorism of the brand's founder Bruce McLaren and Golden elements in the design. "It would be a waste of life to do nothing with one's ability, for I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone", are written in Arabic script and stylised to represent the Dubai skyline.

Lee said that PyeongChang is ready to "welcome the world" for the 2018 Olympics with all construction done and the Olympic Flame touring the country.

Other highlights of the exterior include the car's gold-painted alloy wheels and various carbon-fibre components like the rear diffuser, roof panel and front splitter, among others. The bespoke 720S features satin gold-painted extended gearshift paddles, a satin gold-coloured centre band to the steering wheel and pinstriping in the same hue as the spokes.

For reference, the standard 720S costs north of £200,000.

This 720, despite appearing unique, is completely unchanged under the skin, so it is powered by McLaren's 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and can get itself to a top speed of 212mph.

"The quote from Bruce McLaren rings true not only of the history of McLaren, but also the achievements of the UAE and the Gulf states over the last four decades", he says. "This auto pays tribute to that".
