McLaren has just announced that it has produced the 5000th example from the McLaren Super Series which comprises of the 12C, 650S and 625C limited to the Asian market. Production of the McLaren Super Series models commenced in early 2011 with the 12C.
Through the use of the firm’s carbon fibre MonoCell chassis across all McLaren Super Series derivatives, it has now become the highest volume carbon fibre supercar range in history. The 5000th car is a Volcano Yellow McLaren 650S coupe commissioned for an Australian customer and it rolled off the production line in February 2.
Discussing the milestone, McLaren Automotive chief executive Mike Flewitt said, “McLaren has come a long way in four short years. The completion of the 5,000th vehicle in the Super Series is a fantastic milestone for the brand. The 12C was, and still is, a groundbreaking supercar and, true to the values of McLaren, we have continued to develop and build on this great product into the 650S which has delighted our customers and won countless awards across the world.
“We have built a solid foundation for the business, delivering record numbers year on year, and I look forward to our next production milestone with the addition of the 675LT to the Super Series, and the new Sports Series later in the year,” Flewitt said.
