McLarens Take Sao Paolo

McLaren's 12C takes to the streets of Senna and Fittipaldi's home town.

McLaren is a British outfit through and through. But some would argue that its spiritual home is in Brazil. Among the bazillion grands prix it has won around the world, it has won the Brazilian Grand Prix more than any other team. It's also where its most famous driver, Aytron Senna, came from (not to mention its 1974 world champion Emerson Fittipaldi). So it may be only fitting that this latest promo video was shot in Brazil. Produced by local exotic car dealership Majestic, this clip puts two MP4-12C on the streets of Sao Paulo after hours.

It also channels the spirit of (and recent popular documentary on) Ayrton Senna here and there. It's worth a watch, if only to see how the dealership locks down at night in violent crime-ridden South America. We could do with a little less dramatic choir music, though, and a bit more exhaust note.
