All contenders were meticulously benchmarked and assessed in key areas such as sales, customer service, aftersales and marketing and McLaren Auckland subsequently emerged as the brand’s Asia Pacific Retailer of the Year 2017.

Managing Director of McLaren Automotive Asia Pacific, George Biggs says: "My sincere congratulations to McLaren Auckland on performing yet another stellar year in 2017. This is an impressive achievement for the Auckland team to win the coveted award for the second consecutive year. A dedicated retailer, McLaren Auckland delivered unparalleled excellence in brand experience and continued the global success of the McLaren 720S. A notable highlight from 2017 included the organisation an unforgettable evening at the New Zealand film premiere of ‘McLaren’, where Bruce’s friends, family, new and loyal fans of the brand came together to remember his achievements and his journey onto a glorious motor racing history. The Auckland team worked extremely hard to deliver a fantastic 2017 and with the arrival of the new McLaren Senna, I’m confident the team will have an even greater year in 2018.”

“We are thrilled to receive this honour from McLaren Automotive, and to do so for the second year running, makes it that much more special. It is a great recognition of our team’s effort and commitment, not to mention the perfect way to start 2018.”  Michael Giltrap - Joint Managing Director of McLaren Auckland, Giltrap Group.

About McLaren Automotive:

McLaren Automotive is a creator of luxury, high-performance sportscars and supercars.

The company, launched in 2010, is now the largest part of the McLaren Group.

Every vehicle is hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, Surrey, England.

The company has three defined product families: Sports Series, Super Series and Ultimate Series which are retailed through over 80 retailers in 30 markets around the world.

McLaren is a pioneer that continuously pushes the boundaries. In 1981, it introduced lightweight and strong carbon fibre chassis into Formula 1 with the McLaren MP4/1. Then in 1993 it designed and built the McLaren F1 road car - the company has not built a car without a carbon fibre chassis since. As part of the Ultimate Series, McLaren was the first to deliver a hybrid hypercar, the McLaren P1™.

Announced in 2016, the company’s Track22 business plan will see the company invest £1billion in research and development to deliver 15 new cars or derivatives by the end of 2022, of which at least half will be hybrids.

2017 saw the company launch further models in line with Track22 including the second-generation Super Series, the 570S Spider and the McLaren Senna.

To support the development, engineering and manufacture of its range of innovative sportscars and supercars, McLaren Automotive partners with world leading companies to provide specialist expertise and technology. These include AkzoNobel, Kenwood, Pirelli and Richard Mille.
