McLaren has announced the markets in which it will sell its eagerly-awaited new F1-inspired supercar – and South Africa made the list.
McLaren MP4-12C comes to SA
The 448-kW MP4-12C will be sold in 35 markets around the world, including the US, England, France, Germany and Kuwait. Johannesburg is the single South African city to be graced with its own McLaren dealership, the company told Wheels24.
The first 23 retailers on McLaren’s list are expected to be revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK, while the remainder will be announced throughout the year, Autonews reports.
Only 1 000 cars will be produced. Expect the reverie to begin in 2011, when the first deliveries of the spiritual successor to the iconic McLaren F1 kick off.
