McLaren P1 spotted in Melbourne

McLaren P1 Melbourne

The world's hottest hypercars are popping up everywhere in Victoria!

Only days after we posted a story regarding Melbourne's mystery Bugatti Veyron, the good folk at Melbourne Exotic Car Spotting have done it again with a McLaren P1 snapped in action on the Monash Freeway.

Unlike the Bugatti, the P1 is available in right-hand drive so is theoretically less contentious, however to the best of our knowledge the car hasn't been homologated for use in Australia.

Mclaren P1 on Melbourne Roads!

One of our members spotted something a little special on the road in Melbourne.Its amazing that the LaFerrari, Mclaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder are all illegal to be driven on Melbourne roads but here we are with all three !!

We're reliably informed that the owner of the Veyron and the P1 are in fact the same person, a car nut who's keen to exercise his amazing collection at every opportunity.

And you know what? Good on them. Dubious legality aside, if we had such machinery parked in our garage we'd want to use it as much as possible, too.

If anyone spots a LaFerrari or Porsche 918 Spyder on Aussie roads, we'll share it as soon as we see it.

  • Check out Melbourne.supercar.spotters on instagram that is Dutton Garages 918 spyder on the road. The Laferrari owned by Dutton Garage has never been on the road in Melbourne.
  • @Mason Owns both
  • I might bee able to send in a photo of the la Ferrari and 918 because my friend on both of them in Melbourne. Not Kidding my friend owns www.duttongarage.com
  • So how are old LHD Mustangs and other vintage cars etc still permitted on the roads? And what's the big deal about LHD? Are they a safety issue?
  • Well in Wagga Wagga the bloke who owns Maccas has bought himself a Lamborghini Huracan which he drives around town. No idea if he is a good steerer or not but it is a cool car.
