British sports car giant McLaren is celebrating a new sales milestone in its short yet eventful history. The brand has just delivered its 5,000th car in the North American market.
The 5000th car, a Silica White 570S Spider, was delivered to a California-based customer Dr. Gary Leach. McLaren sold its first vehicle in North America in December 2011 and in less than seven years, it already represents more than a third of the brand’s global sales tally. Debuting in the US in 2011 with the MP4 12-C and followed soon after by the 650S, 675LT and the P1 supercars, McLaren saw steady growth that doubled in 2016 following the introduction of the Sports Series line up.
Currently McLaren has 22 retailers across North America, and plans are also in progress to extend the network with new retailers to be announced in the coming months. The brand is poised for further growth as new models come to market including the sold-out, track focused McLaren Senna later in 2018. As part of the company’s Track 22 business plan, McLaren will launch 12 more cars by 2022, with half its range hybrid by then.
