The final 2016 sales numbers are in, and McLaren had a very good year. In a press release last night, CEO Mike Flewitt wrote: ‘2016 was a remarkable year for McLaren Automotive. We’d planned it to be a year of considerable growth, thanks to the first full year of Sports Series production, but it’s surpassed even our own optimistic expectations, having seen development in all regions. We’ve also invested significantly in our future. The launch of the second shift at the McLaren Production Centre this time last year gives us the capacity for future volume increase and in March, we launched Track22, our six-year business plan, that demonstrates the longer-term future for the company, with 15 all new cars or derivatives planned between now and 2022. I look forward to showing the world the first of those 15 new cars in Geneva: the second-generation McLaren Super Series.’

For comparison, only 1,654 cars were delivered in 2015, and last year had sales of 3,286 carbon fiber masterpieces. The press release did not break down the numbers between the Sports and Super Series models, but we think the potent 570S and 570GT had something to do with it. While still capable of dominating your local track day, the 570S offers adjustable suspension for a smooth ride and the 570GT is aimed a long distance driving. The unique side-opening rear hatch offers ample room for groceries or luggage in addition to the front cargo compartment.
