Imagine you’re late for a meeting and you need a quick ride to get you there in the nick of time. I guess the first thing you would do is order an Uber. Well imagine your surprise when your driver arrives to pick you up in the McLaren MP4-12C. Let’s just say you won’t be running late to your meeting anymore as the vehicle can go 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds, 0-100mph in 6.1 seconds and has a top speed of 205mph.
That’s what happened when Malaysia’s fastest growing online automotive website and YouTube channel AutoBuzz.my decided to have some fun and play some pranks on some unassuming Uber users. Autobuzz registered the McLaren super car as a driver, disguised as a Perodua Myvi. The McLaren super car is a beautiful piece of car engineering and costs between $100,000 to $300,000. Not dissing the Perodua but let’s just say it’s a little bit of a step up.
AutoBuzz cameras capture the absolute shock and disbelief on the unsuspecting faces of the passengers. This is an example of grade A trolling, however if I was one of those passengers I would have milked it for all it was worth. Perhaps take a stroll through a shopping mall and retrieve some numbers, claiming the driver to be my chauffeur. Well, you only live once!
