McLaren North America is celebrating a significant milestone in the automotive sports car and supercar brand’s short yet illustrious history, with the delivery of its 5000th car in the North American market. The 5000th McLaren, a Silica White 570S Spider, was delivered to California-based customer Dr Gary Leach.
McLaren Automotive retailed its first vehicle in North America in December 2011, and in less than seven years, the market already represents more than a third of McLaren’s global sales tally.
Debuting in the US in 2011 with the MP4-12C and followed soon after by the 650, 675LT and the iconic P1 supercars, McLaren saw steady growth that doubled in 2016 following the introduction of the 570 Sports Series lineup. 2017 was another very successful year for the brand, and the region, with the addition of the 570S Spider and the Super Series 720S.
Currently McLaren Automotive has 22 retailers spread throughout North America, and plans are also in progress to extend the network with new retailers to be announced in the coming months. The brand is poised for further growth as new models come to market, including the sold-out, track-focused McLaren Senna later in 2018. As part of the company’s Track 22 business plan, McLaren will launch another 12 cars up to 2022, with half its range hybrid by then.
Proud owner of the 5000th McLaren car to be registered in North America, Dr Gary Leach, commented: “The McLaren 570S Spider really appealed to me as an amazing combination of a car that can be comfortable and enjoyable for a daily driver, but that has the performance, gearshift and brakes that will allow me to fully enjoy it on a track day.”
