Thanks, very interesting. i've been trying to find some information on this Super Car Club Track event. Can't seem to find anything. Is it open to the general public? if so, where would I be able to find some more information?
thanks

The MP4-12C most probably. As Scorcher said, I'm hoping it's in Volcano Orange too. About time McLaren set foot here!

The McLaren is awesomely gorgeous in the Orange shade. I drive by the McLaren showroom in Palo Alto daily, and cannot just take my eyes off the car!

If it is a Brand New Car, and if he does plan to Drive it on the Buddh International Circuit, then, what about the Running-In Period?

Also. Could it be a Used Import under the Transfer of Residence Scheme, maybe a Used MP4-12C or a Used SLR McLaren?

I don't think it could be a SLR . All SLRs are LHD . Or can a LHD be imported under the Transfer of Residence Scheme ?

True. SLRs are LHD, not RHD. Confused it with another Car. Sorry.

No, LHD Cars can't be Imported under the Transfer of Residence Scheme.

Yeah, can't be an SLR, must be an MP4-12C.

I hope it's the P1 display prototype that's making the round of the world at the moment. That would be killer, but I'm guessing that it's the MP4-12C in all probability.

These cars would be company cars and possibly the LHD cars on carnet.
