McLaren only recently announced the “Super Series” with the news it would be unveiling the 675 LT in Geneva. But it’s been building models for the family of carbon-fiber supercars ever since the 12C launched back in 2011. Since then, it has managed to shift 5,000 units, thanks in part to the introduction of the 650S and Asia-only 625C that also make up the range. The 5,000th car is a Volcano Yellow 650S Coupe that rolled off the production line yesterday (February 2) and is destined for a customer in Australia.
In the celebratory shot, the 650S was joined by the first production 12C, which has been retired to the McLaren Heritage Collection. McLaren has come a long way in four short years. The completion of the 5,000th vehicle in the Super Series is a fantastic milestone for the brand. The 12C was, and still is, a groundbreaking supercar and, true to the values of McLaren, we have continued to develop and build on this great product into the 650S which has delighted our customers and won countless awards across the world," said Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer at McLaren Automotive.
