McLaren Automotive is an amazing brand, it’s but a puppy in the world of supercars and hypercars, having only launched twelve years ago. In that relatively short time the manufacturer has cemented itself as one of the best car builders in the world with arguably some of the best tech and processes in the industry. The automaker is based in Woking, Surrey in England, and their high-tech facility doesn’t have a regular production line, it features a variety of stations that are manned by people instead of robots and so every McLaren you see is hand-built. This helps with quality, and also accountability because any mistakes are easily traced, although at this level mistakes are rare. The factory can produce up to 20 cars a day, but in the case of the iconic 12C, production numbers hover around eight a day. The cars are produced in cycles, so you won’t find a certain model in constant production. The range of McLaren cars is split into GT, Supercar, Motorsport and Ultimate models and these are now retailed via more than 85 showrooms in more than 32 markets across the globe. McLaren Automotive is able to do this thanks to partnerships with world-leading companies that provide specialist expertise, technology and solutions including AkzoNobel, Ashurst, Dell Technologies, Pirelli, Richard Mille and Tumi.
