2016 McLaren 570SEnlarge Photo
McLaren has revealed that North American buyers snapped up 519 of its cars in 2015, which represents almost a third of the 1,648 the sports car marque delivered that year.
McLaren still only delivers a fraction of the cars that Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] does (7,664 in 2015 for the Italian), but it expects numbers to grow substantially in coming years as it executes its Track22 plan. The plan calls for 15 new cars between now and 2022.
McLaren says 2016 will see its deliveries approximately double from 2015’s levels. The additional growth will mostly be due to the new, more accessible Sports Series. Already on sale are the 540C and 570S and arriving soon are the 570GT and a 570S Spider.
The 570GT will make its North American debut in mid-August during Monterey Car Week in California. McLaren will be present throughout the event at the Bernardus Lodge & Spa. The company will also have its new 570S Sprint track special on hand. Unfortunately, the 570S Spider isn’t due until 2017.
Before you worry about seeing a McLaren on every corner, note that the company ultimately sees deliveries leveling off around 5,000 or 6,000 in the long term. In contrast, Ferrari has a target of 9,000 deliveries by 2019 but its Chairmain and CEO Sergio Marchionne has hinted at taking this higher.
