McLaren’s success, and staying away from SUVs

I’m not going to sugar-coat anything, I love McLaren products. In fact, we at MI love them. And best of all, you guys do too. Whether in the US or Canada, McLaren is matching and surpassing sales numbers with Lamborghini and Ferrari in both countries.

How can a small British company beat well-established supercar brands like the Italians at their own game? There’s a long and a short answer to that question. The short is that the cars are spectacular, and the people are as well.

The SUV, or CUV, question comes up regularly at McLaren especially now that Lambo’s bitten the bullet and created the Urus. Bentley’s in, as is Rolls. Ferrari’s hinted at one too, as has Aston Martin. McLaren is adamant that they will not cross over onto utility vehicle territory as it is absolutely contrary to what it is they strive to achieve.

While McLaren is currently matching Lamborghini is sales, that will definitely change once the Urus hits the road. Be that as it may, McLaren’s not in it to break sales records, they’re in it to deliver on the promise of building the best road and track cars in the world.
