In line with the Bureau of Custom (BOC)’s commitment to protect the country’s borders and collect appropriate duties and taxes, the Port of Manila in coordination with the Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS) seized a smuggled McLaren 620R supercar.

The shipment accordingly arrived in Manila on July 16, 2020 and was declared as brand-new Porsche Cayman sports car in an attempt to avoid the payment of appropriate duties and taxes.

Although similar in car type, the actual shipment was a McLaren 620R super car with a value of P33M including duties and taxes amounting P16,771,688.91. (Kiara Lauren Ibanez / BENJAMIN CUARESMA)
