Yes, that is a McLaren P1 being loaded into the Southbank showroom.
The images, shared yesterday by Facebook page Melbourne Exotic Car Spotting, caused plenty of online excitement as it’s the first time McLaren’s latest hypercar has appeared locally.
There’s just one catch – it’s not real. Sadly, the car is a show special, outwardly identical to the real thing but with no running gear.
It’s here to be displayed at the opening of McLaren’s Melbourne showroom, due to take place tomorrow.
MOTOR will be attending to speak with CEO Mike Flewitt, who has flown in to host the event.
Unfortunately, while the P1 is a red herring, Melbourne supercar spotters will be familiar with the dark grey McLaren F1 that has called Victoria home for quite a few years.
Formerly owned by ex-Coke Amatil chairman, Dean Wills, the car is used regularly by a local businessman.
Any questions you’d like us to ask Flewitt, simply comment below!
