British luxury high-performance sports carmaker McLaren Automotive has announced the opening of a retail showroom in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.
The new McLaren Riyadh is the company's second location in Saudi Arabia and the sixth in the Middle East after Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Jeddah, Kuwait and Manama.
The latest McLaren retail location, situated within al-Ghassan Motors' new Riyadh facility, will showcase the 12C and the 12C Spider models.
The location will also display McLaren Qualified pre-owned vehicles when the programme is launched in the kingdom later this year.
Sheikh Ghassan AH al-Sulaiman said: "We are proud at the pace we have been able to grow our McLaren business in Saudi Arabia and our latest location highlights a vibrant supercar market. Our focus is on continuing to deliver world class customer service, and opening McLaren Riyadh is one step further to meeting the needs of our McLaren customers in the Kingdom."
"Supported by the groundbreaking supercars that McLaren has already launched and plans to bring to market in the coming years, including the incredible McLaren P1, Al Ghassan Motors is fully prepared to ensure that McLaren continues to prosper in Saudi Arabia," he added.
Ian Gorsuch, McLaren Automotive regional director for Middle East and Africa, added: "McLaren plan to have 50 retailers around the world by the end of 2013, which is also the year of our 50th anniversary."
"The achievements of Al Ghassan Motors to date are key to the success of McLaren across the Middle East as we look to establish ourselves as the iconic sports car company. The opening of our new location in Riyadh gives McLaren enthusiasts, prospects and fans the chance to see, first-hand, what McLaren do in a very impressive environment."
