Car Facility Wins Special Award

McLaren’s new manufacturing plant can hold three jumbo jets or 2,569 Formula 1 cars.

McLaren Automotive’s new £800mn McLaren Production Centre received a special prize at the British Construction Industry Awards, the London Press Service reported on 16 January.

McLaren, which has expanded its retail network to 22 countries around the world, recently opened a showroom in Tokyo.

About 4,000 sports cars will be built annually at the facility, which was designed by architects Foster + Partners and opened by the prime minister, David Cameron, last November.
