British car manufacturer, McLaren, continues to grow and to cater for this growth they have announced the expansion of their UK retailer network. A new state-of-the-art facility, McLaren Hatfield, will be opening up, adding to the six locations (Ascot, Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, London and Manchester) that McLaren already have.

Following a record year of sales in 2017 (550 cars sold), it makes sense for the trendy automaker to broaden its reach within the UK market. Here is what Managing Director of McLaren Automotive Europe, David Gilbert, had to say:

“I am delighted to welcome Cambria Automobiles to the family of UK retail partners of McLaren Automotive. They are an industry-leader famous for their impeccable customer service and I am certain that this new appointment will significantly contribute to the continuous success of McLaren in our home market.”

The brand-new showroom will supposedly have a “spacious display area and a dedicated six-bay workshop facility”. It will also “feature the latest visual identity of the iconic British brand” which I assume means that you will be able to tell it’s a McLaren showroom. Lol.

While the showroom is being built, a temporary four-car showroom, which has a hospitality lounge and a fancy configurator, has been constructed. The new showroom is expected to be complete by January 2019. In the meantime, McLaren customers and fans are being encouraged to visit the temporary showroom so if you’re in the area why not check it out? The address is just below:
