McLaren Automotive is expanding in Scotland with the opening of McLaren Glasgow later this year. The site will be the carmaker’s fourth location in the United Kingdom after London, Birmingham and Manchester. McLaren Glasgow – to be operated by Park’s Motor Group -- will be offering the carmaker’s full range of high performance sports cars, including the McLaren 650S Coupe and 650S Spider.
McLaren Glasgow will be located in Bothwell Road in Hamilton, close to Glasgow city centre. The site’s location -- situated close to junctions 5 and 6 on the M74 motorway – makes it easy to be accessed for sales and servicing needs.
The state-of-the-art showroom is set to be completed by end of 2014 with official opening planned for December. While the construction is ongoing, Park's Motor Group will provide a temporary facility for sales and aftersales from the end of May. Ross Park, Director at Park’s Motor Group, stated that they are proud to join the McLaren family and represent the brand in Scotland.
He said that Park’s Motor Group will use their experience and knowledge to deliver the “highest levels of customer satisfaction.” David Brimson, European Director for McLaren Automotive, remarked that McLaren Glasgow’s addition to its retail network marks another key step in their European growth plan.
He also remarked that Park’s Motor Group is a leading name in the luxury cars market. McLaren Glasgow will be the 19th retailer for McLaren Automotive in Europe, which operates in 11 countries including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Monaco, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
