WOKING: For the first time McLaren has ‘reunited’ a unique collection of its modern sportscars and supercars at the luxury maker’s global headquarters here in Surrey.

The special line-up of 23 cars, estimated to be worth around £50m (RM264.9mil), included iconic models such as the P1 GTR – the track version of the world’s first ever hybrid hypercar – through to the new McLaren Speedtail of which only six will ever be produced – and was assembled to help celebrate the company’s employee, friends and family open day.

Despite McLaren Automotive only being founded under a decade ago, it recently built its 20,000 car.

Under its business plan, McLaren will launch a further 14 models or derivatives between now and 2025 to add to the four already launched. All McLaren’s sportscars and supercars will be hybridised by then with an equal focus on using advanced materials to save weight and enable exhilarating performance.

Around 3,000 of the company’s employees, their families and friends, supported by over 70 volunteers, joined members of the company’s executive team to see the exclusive display alongside actitvities that ranged from ride on P1 hypercar ‘races’, to a children’s competition to ‘design’ the best car judged by McLaren Design Director Rob Melville, to testing reaction speeds on a Batak machine supplied by tyre partner Pirelli.
