McLaren Automotive's North American operations will have its headquarters in New York City. McLaren also named six of the 10 dealerships that will offer its exotic MP4-12C sports car.

The six dealers that will get McLaren franchises are the following: the Auto Gallery, Beverly Hills, Calif.; Lake Forest Sportscars, Chicago; Park Place, Dallas; Miller Motorcars, Greenwich, Conn.; Price Family Dealerships, San Francisco; and Dew Luxury Motor Cars, Tampa Bay, Fla.

McLaren revealed that it will soon name dealerships in Miami, Orange County, Calif., Philadelphia and Toronto in the next several months.

Its executives said that while some of its dealers sell Ferrari and other exotic brands, McLaren Automotive prefers that its global network remain more exclusive, more flexible, and more profitable than rival dealers.

McLaren said that it anticipates that North America will account for 30% of global sales of the MP4-12C, which will be introduced in North America during the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in early August.

US fans should watch out for this 592-hp, two-seat sports car to go on sale in summer 2011. It has a base price between $225,000 and $250,000.
