Mclaren Sales (Nation) : 2017

Not an experience many will have

This is s company on the up, making fantastic drivers cars for those who want and can afford this sort of thing. For most of us, even sitting in one is something we will never do, let alone take one for a spin. Mind you, if I did take one out for a drive, it could end up being spun at some point.

The big disappointment is that 21% or 1 in 5 sales are missing from the chart. Germany for example isn't even there but we can do something about that! Europe is quoted as 892 sales for the 2017 year and if you take away the other European sales below, that leaves 201 units. Germany would take by the far the majority of those sales, I would assume.

The Mclaren racing team was founded in 1963 by a New Zealander, Bruce Mclaren. These cars therefore bear his name and the marque does very well in this tiny country, with 1% of all sales. The cars the company make do his memory proud.

The US figure is an estimate (not by me) and clearly a market that has embraced the Mclaren supercar. Add the UK and there are half the marque's sales. It's a relatively new company so that percentage should drop as time passes and the marque establishes its reputation, a local customer base and the dealer network expands. However, the company has no plans for an SUV. It's not what they do and that's a bold stand to take.

The colours below represent regions, pale blue Europe, dark blue Americas, yellow Asia/Pacific and orange the Middle East.

    1. The source I have definitely says 18 as I have rechecked. I'm not saying you're wrong but I am dependent on others for accuracy. If you are able to assist me with a more accurate source, please let me know on
