McLaren, a company currently engaged in perhaps the most ambitious expansion project of its existence, currently has 2,300 people on its payroll and generated a revenue of £1.2 billion last year.
In 2018, McLaren sold a bit over 4,800 cars, an increase of 43.9 percent over 2017 or nearly 25 percent over all the vehicles it produced since the first road-going machine left the assembly lines in 2011. From 2019 onward, the company’s target is to keep up the pace and sell over 5,000 cars each year,
“While demand for our products continues to grow, we aim to balance that to maintain exclusivity for our brand and our customers,” added McLaren’s CEO Mike Flewitt.
“It is fitting that we celebrate this achievement with a 600LT Spider, which has been a huge success for us with all production slots for the coupe variant now sold out.”
The achieve its target, the company devised a production plan it calls Track25. As per its provisions, the Brits are to launch 18 new cars by 2025, or nearly one every five months. Already the fourth model part of this plan, the new GT, is getting ready for its official unveiling in the coming weeks.
