Humshakals features the rare Mclaren sports car but we've seen these awesome cars before, in the movies.

Swanky cars have always an integral part of Hindi movies.

From action sequences to songs to the hero's big introduction scene, we have seen some of the most expensive cars on the big screen.

In the upcoming Humshakals, Saif Ali Khan -- who owns an expensive fleet of cars himself -- gets to drive the Mclaren sports car, and he seemed delighted by the opportunity.

The actor, along with costar Riteish Desmukh, took the car for a test drive before it was used in the film.

Here's looking at some of the finest cars used in Hindi movies.


Race 2
