Engineered without fear and driven by the fearless – the McLaren is one of the world’s most awe-inspiring brands, relishing the unknown and welcoming the challenge. Recently, McLaren Mumbai unveiled the new 765LT Spider, the only 765LT ever made. The model delivers maximum engagement, untamed performance, and a scalpel-sharp handling. With 765PS and 800Nm of torque, it takes just 11 seconds to open and stow the ultra-lightweight single piece electric retractable hard top leaving nothing between the elements and the driver. Long -ail models like this one personify this spirit. They are the most aggressive, driver-centric, pure performance cars with a proud lineage.

They are designed at the iconic McLaren Technology Centre with each supercar hand-built at the adjoining McLaren Production Centre, in Woking, Surrey, south of London.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
