Default *Rumour* : McLaren MP4-12C spotted in Mumbai?


Just saw a post on Supercars and Exotics in Mumbai fb page stating that an orange McLaren MP4-12C has been spotted in Mumbai. Any sightings? Pics?

I was told my Mclaren they will have a dealer in India by Mid-2012, so perhaps a car for testing?

I am not sure could also be a client's car but in today's time anything is possible in this country. Will ask my mate who works at Mclaren if there was any development on that and try confirm this.

Regards,

Thanks a lot for the confirmation but any idea if this is going to be the dealer car if they have already setup any dealer? Or is this a private import?

Regards,

This info is correct; It's part of a famous BHPian's garage.

Wow! Wouldn't that be one beautiful, sweet looking Garage!
Enjoy Mumbaikars! You did miss out on the Lewis show as well as the F1 race anyway. Some compensation. :P

Great news but sad that it is going to get trapped in the kaccha roads of Mumbai.

What was the OTR, including the import duties?

P.S: Through whom was he able to import the car?

Gautam Singhania had tweeted back in February about speculation of a McLaren having arrived in Delhi as a private import! No updates after that.

Btw, there already exists a thread which is locked, once you get the pics pm the mods to unlock the thread so that you can post the pics.
