What a catch. 

On Tuesday, the Philippines' Bureau of Customs--considered as the national government's second-largest revenue source--was able to prevent the entry of a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C

Worth P45 million, the sports car is fitted with Formula One technology such as the "brake steer," which allows it to turn corners more accurately while cruising at high speeds. 

The sports car is the fourth illegally-imported vehicle intercepted by the bureau in March, the first, second, and third being a Range Rover, a Mini Cooper, and a Nissan Z sports car transported in a container as indicated in a tweet below.
