Car lovers, listen up! What if we told you that you can now see, touch and smell (because who doesn’t love that new car smell) McLaren cars here in Malaysia?
The automotive brand recently opened a McLaren retail facility in Glenmarie, Shah Alam, making it their first and only retail outlet in the country.

With over 420-square metres of space, the centre will offer sales, aftersales, accessories and servicing of the full range of McLaren cars. We are shaking at the thought! There is an interactive car configurator on the ground floor which allows customers to customise their McLaren, so you get to bring your dream car to life. Meanwhile, the McLaren Window gives customers a look into the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) located in Woking, England.
According to The Sun Daily, McLaren Automotive managing director of Asia Pacific and China George Biggs said, “We are delighted to reveal the new showroom location in Kuala Lumpur as Malaysia remains as an important market for us in Asia Pacific Since the production of our first car, the iconic 12C, we have evolved considerably with our multi award-winning range of sports and supercars. We have since established three product series with the Ultimate, Super and Sports Series. The outstanding 720S has received phenomenal response globally”.

In conjunction with the launch of the showroom, there will also be a McLaren GT in the product line-up.
“The new McLaren GT represents the latest addition to the model range. It is an exceptionally refined vehicle with class leading elegance and sophistication. Designed for clients with a sense of adventure, who are seeking both performance and continent-crossing capability, I’m thrilled to launch the new McLaren GT in Malaysia,” Biggs added.
McLaren Kuala Lumpur CEO Roland Chan said: “Having been appointed the sole official importer and accredited retailer for McLaren Automotive, our performance in the last 18 months has been extremely positive. There is tremendous interest in the brand in Malaysia and we have a strong order bank. We are incredibly proud to partner with McLaren Automotive to offer a customer-centric retail experience and showcase McLaren’s award-winning range”.
Roland also said that this will be the first time a McLaren service centre is in the same building as the showroom and they are confident that customers will be able to experience seamless service.
We sure think it sounds good - now just to save up (a lot of) money!
