I'm pretty sure they sell the RHD versions here, this one was likely just for the debut. Could be an early prototype for worldwide launches

Car manufacturers like Porsche, Ferrari often borrow Malaysia the LHD versions for these purposes because it's legal to drive LHD here.

Versus Singapore which is not, they get the RHD debut versions

KL, Malaysia
I like it. A lot. And what a colour. Beats the Ferrari's pick for their press events.

Seat look interesting. hole for ball ass cooler ?
Need some info about its function. tq
To properly drive the Mclaren fast you need humongus nuts. How to sit in a bucket seat with balls that size? Mclaren have kindly considered people like that by giving you plenty of ball room space
