    I live in puebla and there is a guy that lives near here that has two mclarens. I bet he knows where it’s at. The people who can afford them I’m sure all know each other. I saw both of the un-plated mclarens when I was going out of town and they sped past us almost hitting my vehicle. They were accompanied by a corvette, not sure if it was a z06 but the vette was white. I want to say one of the mclarens was blue and I can’t remember what color the other one was. We were right outside of puebla in Atlixco.

    Idk if this is worth typing but the registration plate of the F1 (P440 CPJ) in the uk has been registered as SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) an has been MOT some time in the past 2-3 years in the uk as it is due to run out on April 7th 2021. Also this number plate was first registered on December 18th 1996 to a car with 617 bhp to a ‘yellow’ vehicle make and model that is “unknown or not available”. Now this is where it gets a little weird the car was never exported or imported legally as there would be a record and there is none. The registration plate has never been changed or swapped vehicles, Further more the car was repainted on 07 August 2007 from BROWN to YELLOW. The vehicle was recently purchased on 10 September 2020 by its current owner and bought from the previous owner who owned it from 7 may 2017 to 10 September 2020. The DVLA was told of this purchase as the V5C date is 10 September 2020. In total there has now been 4 owners VIN ends with 8039 Engine number is 6112160690971 I have photos of this information if you want them DM me on Instagram - bnorman__

    OK so that plate is registered to a yellow 1996 F1 it was first mot'd in 2005 9 years after its build with 4,203 miles . It was then mot'd every year up until 2017 where it had 7,392 your saying in 12 years of it being a race car it only did 3000 miles? And in 2018 it now has a zero miles counter so its been clocked also . Something doesn't seem right 🤔 I can tell you this if the dva find out about this that yellow F1 could be getting impounded and crushed irrespective of its value , if you are right its driving on illegal plates with the wrong chassis that is a massive problem in the UK

    Ed, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the McClaren F-1 the first "production" automobile to have a factory monitored telemetry system, that was global, in place, before any of the cars were finished, in order to deal with the lack of dealer support globally to deal with tune and repair. Given that, there's not been any entries in this system for this El Chapo car since it left the factory up until now. When I was first reading about this car, before they were produced, this system was supposed to be so sensitive that if you had a car in California the factory could tune the car to pass the more stringent California emissions from this system.

    The registration plate could have been changed from car to car. If the car was exported I believe the uk registration would have been taken off the Mexico car. It’s possible the plate is owned by the Harrods car owner and isn’t a big conspiracy. In the uk you can swap plates between vehicles. As long as they are registered with the DVLA.
