Luxury supercar maker McLaren has confirmed its imminent entry into the major Indian market, the brand’s 41st global territory.

With the opening of first retail outlet McLaren Mumbai in October, McLaren’s arrival in India forms a key part of the marque’s global expansion plans and extends the brand’s already well-established and growing presence in the Asia Pacific region.

McLaren’s range of supercars and hypercars are the ultimate in personalisation, high-technology and super lightweight engineering, combined with cutting-edge design and innovation to deliver breath-taking experiences. 

Founded by Racer, engineer and entrepreneur Bruce McLaren, the British marque has been producing its cars at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey south of London over the past six decades.

Set to formally open in Mumbai in the third quarter for 2022, the first retail presence in the country will offer the ultimate immersive McLaren brand experience with a direct window into Woking, where every McLaren is created by hand.

It will also provide customers with full levels of support, offering sales, aftersales and servicing on the complete range of McLaren models.

The supercar manufacturer will offer the breadth of its model range to Indian customers, including the Everyday McLaren GT and the marque’s first ever high-performance hybrid - the Artura. The core supercar range also includes the universally acclaimed 720S coming in Coupe and Spider variants, along with the 765LT Coupe and Spider as the latest addition to the legendary LT product family.

“We welcome Lalit Choudary of McLaren Mumbai to the expanding retailer network here in the Asia Pacific region. India remains an important market where our fans and select clientele can enjoy the best of McLaren in Mumbai. Looking ahead, we will shortly welcome the Artura to India, the all-new high-performance hybrid supercar,”  saidPaul Harris, Managing Director – APAC and China, McLaren Automotive

With the launch of the country’s inaugural retailer, Indian customers will now be able to enjoy the McLaren ownership experience through an official retail partner, McLaren Mumbai. An event commemorating the opening will be set for the second half of 2022.

“It is an honour to be appointed as McLaren Automotive’s first retail partner in India - McLaren Mumbai. As a globally renowned supercar manufacturer, McLaren is the pinnacle of modern supercar luxury. 

We look forward to opening the McLaren Mumbai retail experience and offering McLaren customers an outstanding opportunity to engage with the brand and to be part of the McLaren owners’ community,” said Lalit Choudary of McLaren Mumbai.
