We've all gotten used to seeing superheroes being displayed on... supercars, with Batman symbol-bearing Lamborghinis having almost become normal. But what happens when such an adventure receives an Asian twist?
The answer comes from the McLaren 675LT in the image above. The Longtail has been spotted in Taiwan (lens tip to Sick Cars or Stunning for the pic) and we can safely say this is a rolling ode to Doraemon. The story has evolved up to the point where the character became a strong cultural icon in Japan.

We're talking about a character who started off as the face of a Japanese manga series, which later became a highly-praised anime series. The name can be loosely translated as "stray", with the face of the cat being present all over the 666 hp (make that 675 PS, you metric system fans) machine.

As for the shade of blue covering the body of the Woking supercar, the resemblance between this and Doraemon's "fur" color doesn't seem to be accidental. However, we're most likely dealing with a wrap here, which should mean the supercar can be brought to its inital state with ease.

When McLaren introduced the Longtail version of the 675, the exclusivity factor guaranteed by the 500-unit production run was obviously an important asset for many of the buyers.

Nevertheless, the Brits later delivered the Spider incarnation of the 675LT, with certain buyers being angry over the extra 500 cars that would arrive in open-top form.

Well, this owner certainly found a unique way of ensuring his 675 Coupe is more special than others of its kind, regardless of whether we're dealing with fixed- or open-roof models.

As you can imagine, such a thorough visual transformation can easily become an opinion splitter, with certain Facebook users already pointing their virtual fingers at this driver for the Doraemon job. Attention-grabbing target achieved.

UPDATE: It seems Japanese pop culture-touched McLarens are a thing now.
