McLaren Automotive opens flagship showroom in London

McLaren Automotive is going global and today marks an important moment in the history of the carmaker as it opens the doors for the first time on its new flagship showroom in London.

The striking new sales space is located at One Hyde Park in the English capital and is the first of a world wide network of 35 dealerships planned in over 19 countries. The UK will host two other McLaren outlets in Birmingham and Manchester, other locations in Europe include Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Brussels, Paris, Madrid, Zurich and Monaco.

The McLaren network then stretches to North America with the USA receiving the most outlets of any one country these include Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Newport Beach, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Tampa, while in Canada, Toronto is the only spot.

With the McLaren dealerships appearing where the money is, the Middle East gets its share. Shops will open in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Qatar, Jeddah and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Africa’s only dealership is in Johannesburg, South Africa and the Asia/Pacific region gets five stores, in Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and Osaka.

One city that doesn’t get a McLaren dealership is Auckland, New Zealand, the birthplace of Bruce McLaren, the location of his family workshop and where he first began developing race cars.

McLaren Automotive plans on having all its dealerships operational by the end of the year. According to the carmaker each store will carry a large supply of spare parts for servicing the vehicles, creating “a pitstop service concept” that can offer quick turnaround times for repairs.
