Mclaren is pursuing its expansion plan really fast, they have two Ferrari-rivaling GT models in the pipeline and there are also rumors about a replacement for the legendary McLaren F1 supercar. So they have to look for new markets to sell their cars and where better to start than the rich,stable and promising market of the middle east!
Given the success of other British brands, Rolls Royce and Bentley, here it makes perfect sense for McLaren to invest heavily in the region and open a new headquarter ,along with the world famous Woking center, exclusively for this market. The new McLaren center will almost certainly be located in the UAE and control operations for middle east and Africa. It’ll also make it easier for McLaren to have a taste of Chinese market.
There are some speculations about upcoming McLaren models, the P11 mid-engine sports car has been already scooped and will rival Ferrari 450 and Porsche 911, there is also a baby McLaren, another model for reasonably priced sportscar segment like Audi R8, and the ultimate Mc which is the revival of the great F1 supercar.
