The first three dealers for the MP4-12C will be in London, Birmingham and Manchester
15 June 2010

McLaren has announced the three UK retailers for its new MP4-12C supercar.

Rybrook in Birmingham, Jardine Motors Group in London, and Sytner in Manchester will sell the MP4 from spring 2011 under the names McLaren Birmingham, McLaren London and McLaren Manchester.

The three retailers are the first of 35 to be announced to sell the MP4. The full European dealer network will be announced later this month, while the North American, Middle Eastern and South African dealers will be confirmed in the summer. Asia-Pacific dealers will be revealed in the autumn.

McLaren has said demand for 2011’s production of 1000 MP4-12C units has already exceeded supply.

By the middle of the decade McLaren wants to have “a full model range” of sports cars with the firm selling around 4000 units per year.

The MP4-12C will be launched at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month.

Hmmmm - wonder why they chose Manchester ? Is there a car-mad & cash-rich bunch of footy players living in that area?

Seeing as Greater Manchester has the second most populous urban area after London I'd say that's the reason. Where else would you assume they'd sell them? Swindon? Norwich? Much Marcle?

Looks as if the company is setting itself up to replace TVR - one hopes (and prays) without the unintended iffy build quality. If Sytners is involved showrooms will appear in Edinburgh and Swansea where already exist their multi-premium sportscar sites ... none of which are selling cars in any great number. Just ask Aston Martin..

Granted - Greater Manc. has a huge population - but McLaren are after the men with millions - not millions of men .......

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.
