This is 54 more than 2016 and more than double 2015’s figure. McLaren scored its best sales year in its history in 2017, shifting 3340 cars across the 12 months.
Although that is only a modest increase over 2016’s 3286 cars – which itself represented growth of 99.3% over the previous year – McLaren’s newest model, the 720S, achieved the same sales figure in six months as its predecessor did across the whole of 2016.
The best sellers among the range remain the entry-level Sports Series cars, comprising the 570S coupé and Spider, 570GT and 540C. They accounted for 2119 sales.
The Super Series, which is now the 720S alone – took up the other 1221 cars.
