McLaren Celebrates 5000 Cars Sold In North America In Six Years

A Silica White 570S Spider became the 5000th McLaren sold in North America, which is the single largest market for the British supercar maker.

The car was delivered this week to its California-based customer, Dr. Gary Leach. McLaren Automotive sold its first car in North America in December 2011, the MP4 12C which was soon followed by the 650S, 675LT and the P1.

Since then, McLaren saw steady growth, which doubled in 2016 with the launch of the 570 Sports Series lineup.

“From small beginnings back in 2011, we have firmly established the McLaren range of sportscars and supercars as class leaders that appeal to a wide range of discerning enthusiasts,” said McLaren North America President, Tony Joseph. “The 570 series has become a strong seller, helping us double our sales, and the accolades bestowed on the new McLaren 720S have helped create a backlog of orders that we will fill during 2018.”

McLaren has currently 22 retailers across North America, with plans already in place to extend the network with new dealers. The British manufacturer will launch another 12 cars up to 2022, and with half of the range to be electrified by then.

“We are experiencing unprecedented growth in the North American market from just a handful of cars in 2011 to more than 1,200 retail sales here last year. We are taking steps to ensure that our presence and customer service is at the cutting edge of the luxury performance car market,” added Joseph.
