Not 1 Series Related, but...

But I figured gearheads would appreciate this:

Right now, there are two (!) McLaren MP4-12Cs in front of the Sheraton at 16th and Court Pl in Downtown Denver!

Yeah, that's what I can't figure out. Two identical cars, no plates and no temp tags that I could see...

Lol. Both of them were there for that one day, then the one that I took the back picture of was there for the next two or so days.

Still never figured out what the deal was with 2 McLaren's being there...

That is odd, because now that I recall, there were two new Porsche 911's sitting in front of the Sheraton earlier that week as well.

I didn't see the 911s, but I know what you mean. I always see hot cars parked in front of this hotel... Maybe Sheraton offers a gearhead discount?

Thumbs up

So my brother figured out what the story was with these two cars. They were used to film a video of them driving (drifting really) up Loveland Pass in the snow.

I e-mailed McLaren Automotive and they confirmed for me that those two cars were indeed used in the video.

Now that's pretty cool. I also want to drift some of those corners everytime I go over Loveland Pass, but there always seems to be oncoming traffic.
