In 2012, the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) is responsible for production of eight MP4-12Cs every day, for distribution to 35 McLaren retailers in 18 countries.
MPC was awarded Best Industrial and Logistics Development by MIPIM at a recent ceremony in Cannes, France.
As one of the most spectacular car assembly plants in the world, it was only a matter of time before the McLaren Production Centre was recognized for their outstanding production.
Now that the new McLaren Production Centre is fully operational, the company anticipates that it will build up to 4000 cars across its model range annually by the middle of the decade.
