$63.5 Million McLaren Supercar Lineup ‘Reunited’ for First Time
Unique lineup was brought together at McLaren Technology Center in England to honor company’s employees
For the first time McLaren has “reunited” a unique collection of its modern sportscars and supercars at the luxury carmaker’s global headquarters in Woking, Surrey.
The special lineup of 23 cars is estimated to be worth around $63.5 million. They included iconic models like 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 employees.
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.
‘Seeing our famous lineup of cars assembled here for the first time is a reminder to everyone of how far we’ve come as a company in such a short space of time.’
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 activities 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 lineup of cars assembled here for the first time is a reminder to everyone of how far we’ve come as a company in such a short space of time, and of the ambition and innovation of our people who have helped create that success,” said Melville.
