Tour kicked off at Auckland's ANZ Viaduct Events Centre on Sunday morning. Thirty-plus supercars draws a crowd.

The McLaren Epic Tour New Zealand kicked off this week, with a fleet of 32 supercars and their owners heading from Auckland to Queenstown... and creating an enormous stir along the way.

We joined them for day one towards Taupo on Sunday, but where else can you spot them? Here are some key locations for the week.

TUESDAY

The fleet will be reporting to the Interislander ferry in Wellington at 8am, for a 9am sailing. Hydraulic lifters will be raised all-round as these super-low supercars board the big boat.

They'll arrive in Picton between midday and 1pm, head for a stop at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre in Blenheim before driving to Nelson, with an expected arrival time of 5pm.

WEDNESDAY

The Tour departs Nelson at 7am, arriving at Punakaiki on the West Coast between 11am–12.30pm. Then it's onwards to Tekapo, arriving approximately 6.40pm.

THURSDAY

Out of Tekapo and on to Omarama, passing through Lake Pukaki. The fleet should arrive in Wanaka at 2.15pm.

FRIDAY

Farewell to Wanaka at 8.30am and heading for Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell, with the Tour finishing how it started: on a racetrack.

From there the Tour will wind down with a finish in Queenstown on Saturday.

What should you look out for? Everything! But of special interest is the sole, unassuming-looking F1 (McLaren's first road car from the 1990s, estimated value $22m), several 675LTs and two examples of the P1 'hypercar' - McLaren's flagship model.
