Yes, it is here! India’s first right-hand drive McLaren 720S has landed and it is here to stay. It will officially be registered and run on Indian number plates. The car is said to belong to Adar Poonawalla who already has an awesome car collection in Pune.
While this might be the first RHD model to arrive in India, it is not the first McLaren 720S to have burned rubber on Indian roads. Last year a red colour exotic looking 720S had been brought to India in Bangalore from Dubai. That car was a left-hand drive model and was here on Carnet.
And no, that was not the only one. A white McLaren 720S was also seen roaming the streets of Mumbai, the financial capital of India. This particular car was also a left hand drive with Dubai registration and brought here via Carnet as well.
Now, this particular McLaren 720S is finished in a deep black gloss paint which makes the car looks sinister. It is running on 5-spoke alloy wheels finished in a silver colour behind which we can see the massive brake callipers painted in red. Inside, the supercar comes with a two-tone interior finished in brown and black.
A mid-mounted 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine powers the McLaren 720S. It produces 720PS and 770Nm. The supercar can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds and 0-200km/h in 7.8 seconds. It can reach a top speed of 341km/h.
