Flowing lines and flawless engineering. McLaren’s bespoke technology and production facilities are unique and within their beautifully detailed state-of-the-art buildings is a collaborative environment that encourages innovation and inspires everyone working under the McLaren banner.
As a young company only over six years since formed, McLaren Automotive has announced details of its Track22 Business Plan, taking it through the next six years through to 2022. Keeping the spotlight on the development of the world best drivers’ cars, McLaren Automotive will continue to focus purely on the development of two-seater sports and supercars.
The brand has committed that its industry-leading 20-25 percent of turnover will be invested in Research and Development for future products and technology. Over the six-year Business Plan period, this represents an investment of $1.4 million and will lead to the launch of 15 allnew cars.
The new 570GT launch represents the culmination of new model introductions for 2016. McLaren also confirmed the addition of a Spider derivative within its Sports Series family in 2017. Following the positive reception of the 675LT Coupé and Spider models, McLaren has also announced that ‘LT’ will become a track-focused sub-brand with further models in the future. With the global success of the petrol-electric hybrid-powered McLaren P1TM, McLaren Automotive has confirmed that at least 50 percent of its cars will feature hybrid technology by the end of the Business Plan period.
The future is here
The innovative research engineers at the McLaren Technology Centre are also in the early prototype stages of the development of a fullyelectric powertrain to evaluate its possible use in a future generation of an Ultimate Series car.
