British supercar maker McLaren Automotive on Monday, August 22, 2022, eventually announced its official entry into the Indian market later in October this year, with financial capital Mumbai as its 41st global territory.
“India remains an important market where our fans and select clientele can enjoy the best of McLaren in Mumbai. Looking ahead, we will shortly welcome the Artura to India, the all-new high-performance hybrid supercar,” asserted Paul Harris, Managing Director, McLaren Automotive – APAC and China.
In its released statement, the supercar manufacturer cited that it will offer the breadth of its model range to Indian customers, including the Everyday McLaren GT and the marque’s first ever high-performance hybrid, Artura.
McLaren’s car price starts at INR 3.72 crore for its superlight GT, whereas the cost for its most expensive model, 720S starts with INR 4.65 Crore onwards.
The automotive company trades a range of supercars, which are hand-built at a UK-based facility.
Speaking to the media over the entry of McLaren into Asian-Pacific markets, Harris stated, “The opening of the first retail outlet in October is a key part of the company’s global expansion plans, extending the brand’s already well-established and growing presence in the Asia-Pacific region.”
In the United Kingdom, McLaren 765LT is supposed to be the latest super series flagship having an output of 755bhp and a starting price of £ 280,000, but unfortunately, every model has already been sold.
Meanwhile, in the United States of America, the prices of McLaren Supercars range between $ 225,000 – $ 400,000, with its four models, Artura, 720S, 720S Spider, and 765LT that embrace its presence across the US.
It is believed that the company’s retail outlet in Mumbai will offer sales, aftersales and servicing on the complete range of McLaren models.
