Today represents a special milestone for McLaren Automotive which has, in the last 12 months, evolved into a global luxury car producer. It was exactly a year ago since the first McLaren MP4-12C was sold, and McLaren opened its very first retailer in the UK. Twelve months later, sales of the 12C have surpassed 1,000 pieces and McLaren has expanded its retail network into 22 countries across the globe.
Through four regional offices, each with its own management team, McLaren showrooms are now located in: UK, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Monaco, USA, Canada, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, South Africa, Japan, Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong.
Over the year GTspirit.com drove the new sports car and shared our verdict about the McLaren MP4-12C with you. We also visited the brand McLaren Production Center and shared tons of pictures and an in-depth story with you.
Managing Director Antony Sheriff said:
This is a proud moment in time for everyone at McLaren where, in only 12 months, the 12C has established itself as one of the most acclaimed high performance sports cars in the world amongst a very discerning customer. From the day that Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button officially opened our very first showroom in London, McLaren is now present in 38 cities in 22 countries across the globe.
At the heart of this journey is a single-minded focus on the very highest quality and personal care and support wherever our customers are in the world. That is what our customers expect after they buy the car, and are just as important as a fast lap time.
