McLaren celebrates 12 month milestone of MP4-12C and worldwide expansion
It’s hard to imagine that it’s been exactly twelve months since the McLaren MP4-12C went on sale and since McLaren Automotive began its massive worldwide expansion of dealerships and showrooms which now stretches to no fewer than 22 countries across the globe. Yet by some miracle, the past 12 months have flown by.
When compared to its main competitor, Ferrari, having dealerships in 22 countries may not sound very impressive but when you consider that all of this has been achieved in 12 months, it’s a remarkable achievement.
Additionally, in just 12 months, the English brand has managed to sell 1,000 units of the MP4-12C with more orders coming in by the day. Up to 400 of these units are believed to be heading towards the U.S., so there’s no doubting the fact that American streets will be filled with 12C’s in the coming years.
The McLaren Automotive network now reaches the U.K, Hong Kong, Australia, Singapore, Japan, South Africa, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Canada, U.S.A, Monaco, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Germany and France.
While speaking about the matter, Managing Director of McLaren Automotive, Antony Sheriff stated, “This is a proud moment in time for everyone at McLaren where, in only 12 months, the 12C has established itself as one of the most acclaimed high performance sports cars in the world amongst a very discerning customer. From the day that Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button officially opened our very first showroom in London, McLaren is now present in 38 cities in 22 countries across the globe.”
“At the heart of this journey is a single-minded focus on the very highest quality and personal care and support wherever our customers are in the world. That is what our customers expect after they buy the car, and are just as important as a fast lap time”, he concluded.
