Which car is this, Mclaren F1 or MP4-something or the other? F1 car holds no attraction, the Mclaren F1 (BMW V12) on the other hand would cause riots if parked in a mall.

Hope its not like the Ferrari F1 that was at Spencers. Standing near the car ( forget touching it ) was a crime.

Nitrous & Wolffe could be right Dippy. The Renault which came here was actually a Benetton driven by Fisichella (i guess it was 2006) painted in the current colors. So there are chances that the Ferrari F1 was actually the one driven by Michael Schumacher, painted in the current colors. Damn I missed it .

Anyways here is the Mclaren F1 which came to Mumbai sometime back, I (again) completely forgot about posting it. Well, here are they: (Cam - N82)

Nice excuse for a meet at Ispahani centre - the last time we met there was when Samurai came to town.
