McLaren Sports Series Enters Pre-Production Phase

Posted on Aug 30, 2015 by

The countdown to the launch this autumn of the most attainable road car project yet, the Sports Series, continues with the start of the pre-production phase within the state-of-the-art Production Centre in Woking, England.  This milestone marks the final stage in the development programme ahead of the global roll-out of the 570S Coupé; the first model to be launched in the Sports Series family.

Up to this point through the development programme, the Sports Series has covered in excess of 500,000 testing kilometres. These have been on a mixture of race circuits and roads, in some of the harshest conditions around the world including the extreme heat of the Arizona and Nevada summer, the Arctic conditions common of northern Sweden in the winter and, of course, the changeable British weather.

Andreas Bareis, Executive Director – Quality at McLaren Automotive explained: ‘The pre-production phase is one of the most important, and also one of the most demanding, in a product readiness phase at McLaren. Up to this point, vehicles have been running in various locations around the world and subjected to some of the harshest conditions, and we are testing every component and system to the extreme. This final phase brings all testing together for the first time in a package that is representative of the cars our owners will be taking delivery of.’

Deliveries of the Sports Series, starting with the 570S Coupé, will commence before the end of the year. When the full family has been launched, forecast to be by the end of 2017, the range is expected to more than double the annual volume of McLaren, and bring the brand in front of a new audience.  Prices for the McLaren Sports Series start from AED 712,000.
