McLaren Scottsdale Opens Company’s Largest Retail Store In The Americas
McLaren Scottsdale, part of the Mike Ward Automotive Group, opened a brand-new, state of the art McLaren retail and service facility – now the company’s biggest in the Americas market – at a gala event on Wednesday, January 25th. Totaling 35,000 square feet and representing a significant investment, the facility is located at 7881 East Gray Rd, Scottsdale AZ.
McLaren Scottsdale also holds the top spot in the Americas for the highest specification vehicles sold by any store in the US, with customers regularly upgrading their vehicles to include McLaren Special Operations (MSO) Bespoke content on top of the already comprehensive factory specification.
Nicolas Brown, McLaren Americas President, was on hand to celebrate the grand opening gala, along with more than 500 customers and VIPs, who were treated to a display of iconic McLaren road cars including the McLaren F1, Senna, Elva, 765LT, 675LT to mention a few – a display valued at more than $25 million. The next day McLaren owners took to the track at the private Attesa circuit to enjoy their cars to the limit.
Mike Ward Automotive, who acquired the Scottsdale McLaren franchise in 2019 before embarking on the extensive program of investment and re-location to a new site, already runs a successful McLaren retail store in the Denver, Colorado area.
“We are delighted to open this spectacular new facility in the Scottsdale area to serve our strong base of McLaren customers in the region. McLaren is a brand on the rise in this market and with the launch of the all-new McLaren Artura hybrid supercar we see great potential for further growth and expansion among high-performance enthusiasts in Arizona.”
Mike Ward, Owner, Mike Ward Automotive Group
“This facility represents the confidence the retail network has in the McLaren brand and in our future in this key market. With only 11 years behind us, we have made massive strides in our ability to deliver world class sales and customer service to our ‘McLaren family’ in the Americas.
“This investment comes shortly after the opening of our brand-new McLaren Americas HQ in Dallas, which gives us the ability to serve our network with enhanced technical support and training facilities and precedes several other retailers who plan to open new or significantly upgraded retail points in the next 12 months.”
Nicolas Brown, President, McLaren, the Americas
