McLaren marks building its 20,000th car
McLaren Automotive has celebrated yesterday the 20,000th car to be hand-assembled at its McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey.
The 20,000th car built was a right-hand drive 600LT Spider from the brand’s Sports Series line-up. Launched last summer as the next chapter in the McLaren "Longtail" story, all production slots for the Coupe variant have already been filled.
This latest milestone represents a further significant achievement for the British marque and comes eight years after the first McLaren road car left the Production Centre in July 2011.
While McLaren’s production reached just over 4,800 cars in 2018 to meet rising global demand, output will remain around 5,000 a year into the next decade before increasing to 6,000 before the end of the current Track25 business plan in order to maintain exclusivity.
