First time an example of every one of McLaren’s modern day roadcars have been brought together in a ‘collection’ estimated to be worth BHD 23.7m Cars were ‘reunited’ at the McLaren Technology Centre (MTC) in Woking, Surrey The unique line-up was created to help celebrate McLaren Automotive employee, friends and family open day
For the first time McLaren has ‘reunited’ an example of every model of its modern sportscars and supercars at the luxury maker’s global headquarters in Woking, Surrey.
The special line-up of over 25 cars, estimated to be worth around BHD 23.7m, 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 and under approx. BHD56.8m investment strategy, will launch a further 14 models or derivatives between now and 2025. Under the company’s ambitious Track25 business plan, all McLaren’s sportscars and supercars will be hybridised 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, supported by over 70 volunteers, joined members of the company’s executive team to see the exclusive display alongside actitvities that ranged from ride on P1TM hypercar ‘races’, to a children’s competition to ‘design’ the best car judged by McLaren Design Director Rob Melville, to testing reaction speeds on a Batak machine supplied by tyre partner Pirelli.
“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.
“It’s thanks to them, with the support of their friends and families, that we have been able to achieve so much, so quickly and launch so many amazing cars, over 90 per cent of which are exported around the world. Our ambition as a company remains stronger than ever and we look forward to adding more amazing drivers’ cars to our range very soon.”
