North America is McLaren’s single largest market.
McLaren set up shop on the continent in December 2011.
McLaren has enjoyed tremendous success over the last few years and North America has played an enormous role in the British Supercar brand’s meteoric rise.
Globally, since 2011, McLaren has delivered more than 23,000 cars, including the extremely rare and coveted P1, and numerous other models such as the Senna and the superb Speedtail. The latter was the 7,500th new car sold in North America recently, a fitting car for one of the car company’s most important markets.
McLaren North America President, Tony Joseph said: “We are proud of what the brand has become in a relatively short period of time. When you consider the acclaimed performance cars we have brought to market in less than ten years, we have established McLaren as one of the most exciting brands and a formidable competitor in the supercar segment.”
The Speetail, as the name suggests, is about going fast. Its twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine with a parallel hybrid system produces no less than 1,036 horsepower and 848 lb.-ft. of torque. Its top speed is 403 km/h or 250 mph, making it the fastest McLaren ever produced.
