Since production of the 12C began in Jan. 2011, McLaren has been building the Super Series of cars into a carbon fiber force to be reckoned with. Now, with the creation of their 5,000th model in the series, they’ve broken another record just ahead of introducing the newest member of the series.
A Volcano Yellow 650S Coupe ordered for a customer in Australia was car number 5,000 in the series to roll off of McLaren’s production line, according to a Feb. 2 press release from the marque. With the creation of this specific 650S, McLaren has broken the record for highest volume carbon fiber supercar range.

Demand for McLarens has increased dramatically in the four years since the Super Series launched, and as a result, the company has grown from 30 to 500 employees in that time.
“We have built a solid foundation for the business, delivering record numbers year on year, and I look forward to our next production milestone with the addition of the 675LT to the Super Series, and the new Sports Series later in the year,” described Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer at McLaren Automotive, in the release.
