Breathe easy, elite members of society. McLaren is here to make sure you don't have to spend too much money fixing your supercars. How? McLaren is going to let buyers extend their warranty plans up to 12 years.
The McLaren warranty is of the extended variety and is a nice jump over the standard warranty offered with the car. Right out of the gate, you're given a three-year warranty with unlimited mileage. Previously, that could be pushed to a seven-year warranty, and now you can back it out to a full 12 years. You can do this in 12- or 24-month increments to suit your ownership period and needs. McLaren isn't providing pricing for the plans.
McLaren also allows this new warranty program for those who purchase a certified pre-owned vehicle. The car in question can't be more than 10 years old, must be part of the Sports or Super Series lineup, and can't have more than 100,000 miles on the odometer. That means there will be no extended warranty options for P1 owners. Suck it up and try to carry on.
The British automaker is matching a move made by its Italian rival Ferrari, which also recently started offering standard seven-year maintenance programs. It seems the world is finally becoming a better place for those who shop in the supercar segment.
