Yup.
A 720s, landing pretty soon.
Going to a famous garage in Bangalore.
Will soon be joined by a 812 Superfast if I'm not wrong.

Yes true a brand new McLaren 720S is headed to a notable Bangalore garage, it will share garage space with some of the most tastefully spec'd supercars from the country.

Absolutely correct. In fact, the car has completed production and is en route Dubai as I type this. Delivery should happen early August and the car will land in India by end of August.
But the car is a LHD and would be bought and registered in Dubai and shipped to India on Carnet. Same goes for the 812 that belongs to the same person and is scheduled for mid 2018.

The India-bound McLaren 720s has been delivered to the Bangalore-based owner in Dubai. It will soon be shipped to India on Carnet.

Wow the McLaren does look beautiful. Would have preferred it in a more sporty or crazy color. Does the security X5 have 3 action camera's mounted on the bonnet? Is this for security or to capture some amazing videos of the McL?

This seems to be a LHD. I read here that India no longer allows registration of LHD cars. Is it even road legal to drive a LHD car in Bengaluru?

Well, this one is here on Carnet so there's no need to register as it will out of the country in a while.

Surprised no Bangalore cop stopped it for missing the license plates. Where is the road tax receipt, Saar? Funny to see it deal with the infamous Bangalore traffic. They avoided the peak hours I see.
