For the first time McLaren has ‘reunited’ a unique collection of its modern sportscars and supercars at the luxury maker’s global headquarters in Woking, Surrey.
The special line-up of 23 cars, estimated to be worth around £50m, included iconic models such as the P1TM GTR – the track version of the world’s first ever hybrid hypercar – through to the new McLaren Speedtail of which only 106 will ever be produced – and was assembled to help celebrate the company’s employee, friends and family open day.
Despite McLaren Automotive only being founded under a decade ago, it recently built its 20,000th car. Under its Track25 business plan, McLaren will launch a further 14 models or derivatives between now and 2025 to add to the four already launched. All McLaren’s sportscars and supercars will be hybridised by then with an equal focus on using advanced materials to save weight and enable exhilarating performance.
Around 3,000 of the company’s employees, their families and friends came to see the exclusive display alongside other actitvities.
Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive says: “Seeing our famous line-up of cars assembled here for the first time today is a reminder to everyone of how far we’ve come as a company in such a short space of time and the ambition and innovation of our people who have helped create that success.“
