Mystery around £150k pink sports car that ‘hasn’t moved’ from hotel for two years

The mystery around why an expensive pink sports car has been left parked outside a posh London hotel appears to have been solved.

A TikTok user posted a clip of the McLaren 570s, which she said has been outside the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel since at least 2020 and can even be seen on Google Maps.

Gabby Lauren – who goes by user name SoggySpin4ch on the social media platform, said: “When will this pink car move? This car has been here the whole pandemic.”

The video has since racked up over 1.3million views and nearly 100 comments with many users commentating their experiences of witnessing the car as well as posting their theories on its stagnant position, reports MyLondon.

One commenter said: “Omg yea! It hasn’t moved and I’ve been walking past here a few times over the last couple of years.”

Another added: “Wait… I walked past this like seven months ago… IT’S STILL THERE?”

Another said: “I literally live in Oxford and whenever I come to London I see this car.”

One theory that proved popular with some is that the car has in fact been moved but just always returns to its same parking spot.

However, someone claiming to work at the hotel appears to have solved the mystery.

They said: “I actually work at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, the McLaren is owned by one guest who permanently moved into the hotel near the start of the pandemic because he was having trouble getting back to his country.”

Another agreed: “It’s been there since before 2018 at least, the owner lives in the hotel. They allow him to park it there since it looks good.”

A commenter who said they live near King’s Cross also concurred as they claimed: “No no no, this car has moved and actually been out for a few days, then back again. He or she will be a resident upstairs.”
