Today, the McLaren Production Centre (MPC), in the countryside of Woking, Surrey, which opened seven years ago and which is our all-time favorite vehicle manufacturing facility, produced its 15,000th car.

It was a 570S Spider in Curacao Blue.

The 15,000th McLaren outside of the McLaren Technology Centre. Yes, that’s the building where the engineering is done.

Speaking of the accomplishment, Mike Flewitt, McLaren Automotive CEO, said: Reaching 15,000 cars built is a significant milestone for McLaren Automotive and comes under 18 months after we hit 10,000 vehicles, showing how demand and production have increased.”

He added, “The fact we are now able to produce 20 cars a day is of course a great testament to the hard work and dedication of every one of our workforce, who should feel justifiably proud and part of this great team effort.” They are “now” able to do that because they added a second shift at the facility.

Every car that has come out of the MPC (in fact, every McLaren since 1993, the year of the McLaren F1) has a carbon-fiber chassis.
