McLaren has just announced the production of its 10,000th model at its car plant in Woking, England.

 

The British carmaker even celebrated the roll out of the milestone vehicle, a 570S finished in Ceramic Grey paintwork. The latter was driven off the production line just over five years after the first car – the 12C, was completed. The 570S will be retained by the company in its Heritage Collection.

McLaren took 42 months to build their 5,000th car and just 22 months to build the next 5,000. This speaks volumes about how far the brand has come in such a short span of time. Much of that development though is because of the introduction of the Sports Series family of cars which includes smaller, road focussed models.

In early 2016, a second shift was introduced into the Woking facility to cater to the increasing demand of the Sports Series family which includes the 540C, 570S and 570GT. This took the capacity from 10 cars per day to 20 cars per day.

McLaren says it’s on target to almost double its sales this year compared to 2015, from 1,654 cars last year to over 3,000 cars in 2016, of which over 90 per cent will be exported.
