I dunno something doesnt seem right. An F1 car in an open flat bed truck when they didnt want to attract attention.
unless it's just a scale model.

They were probably unloading the car. The forum says that the car is going to be handled by WIAA until the Johnny Walker event. They covered the car up just after that. You can actually see somone putting on covers in the pic.

Its most probably a chassis without the engine. HSBC also had displayed the-then Jaguar F1 car in their HQ in Bangalore a few years back.

Hi Guys,

The car is in Mumbai for a prmotional event for Johnny Walker whisky brought down by the Diaggio group. It wil be on display at the Turf Club of India for the Johnny Walker night.

Most of you must have seen the bilboards saying "are you invited".

I knew some people would still have that doubt.... that is a McLaren F1. Period.

When I say McLaren F1 car, I assume most people will understand it as the F1 race car

And most people did understand that except you

j/k

Man, My office is at churchgate and I missed this!!! On top of that, I had an invite to this event which I threw away since I dont remember seeing any mention of the Mac. What on earth? Tommorow morning at work, its dustbins being searched.

Even without the engine, this is a masterpiece. Thanks for sharing the find, Nikhil.
