From the description: "...390BHP electronic conversion...". I wonder how they did this and what was used.
I did post this somewhere. Mclaren did mod a few C43's for people, one was a popstar. The electronic mods were the ECU's were removed and replaced with bespoke ones, thats how you can tell if its a Mclaren car or not the electronics have Tag Heur markings and numbers not MB.

If that were a Mclaren car it would be worth thousands as IIRC there were only 3 C class done

Regardless of whether the McLaren conversion is true or not its a very highly specced car if the rust is only cosmetic then a good buy I reckon.
