McLaren Automotive is the division of the British manufacturer McLaren Group. Based in Woking, U.K., the automotive division produces luxury supercars. McLaren has a deep-rooted history in racing — founder Bruce McLaren joined the Formula 1 team in 1959. Four years later, he created Bruce McLaren Motor Racing, producing the company’s first race car, the M1A. After his tragic death, the company merged with Ron Dennis’ Project 4 Racing team.
McLaren’s first purpose-built road car was the F1 in 1992. After its production run, the automotive division stopped making cars until 2010. That year, the company released the 12C and then the Spider. Thanks to its reputation for performance and artistic design, the brand has become recognizable worldwide.
Maintaining a McLaren varies depending on the model, but owners can expect to spend over $1,000 yearly for routine maintenance.
Popular models include the 720S, P1, Senna, 570S, and Speedtail. The Speedtail is the fastest McLaren road car, reaching 250 mph.
