McLaren celebrates production milestone; Produces its 10,000th car

McLaren celebrates production milestone; Produces its 10,000th car

McLaren has just surpassed a major production milestone. The British sports car maker, in fact, has rolled out its 10,000th car from its manufacturing plant in Woking, England. 

The milestone vehicle, a 570S finished in Ceramic Grey paintwork, rolled out of the plant just over five years after the first car – the 12C, was completed. The production figure is remarkable considering the short history of McLaren’s road car division. The fact that it took the brand 42 months to build their 5,000th car and just 22 months to build the next 5,000 speaks volumes about the development. Much of that development is thanks to the introduction of the Sports Series family of cars which includes smaller and road focussed models. 

In early 2016, a second shift was introduced into the Woking facility to cater to the increasing demand of the Sports Series family which includes the 540C, 570S and 570GT. This took the capacity from 10 cars per day to 20 cars per day. 

McLaren says it’s on target to almost double its sales this year compared to 2015, from 1,654 cars last year to over 3,000 cars in 2016, of which over 90 per cent will be exported. Coming back to the 10,000th car, this rather special model will be retained by the company in its Heritage Collection.
