This region already has a fair amount of luxury-loving petrolheads, but there’s still room for one more. Enter Mclaren, the performance car maker better-known for its Formula 1 racing:

The Middle East is on track to host McLaren Automotive’s first regional retail network, bringing to the market what is expected to be one of the world’s most desirable cars. The new range of high-performance sports cars will share the same headquarters that today hosts over 50 years of McLaren motorsport and performance sports car heritage, from Bruce McLaren’s 1954 Austin 7, to the record-breaking and legendary McLaren F1 road car of the ‘90s, and the most successful supercar ever in its price bracket, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.

McLaren hopes to have moved in by 2011, the same time it’s due to release its next-gen supercar. That gives you a little time to start saving then, these cars don’t come cheap.

  1. I’m anti-OPEC and wish we could move beyond gas guzzlers.

    Nevertheless, I still have to admit that these cars are beautiful to admire. If they made these cars eco-friendly, I would buy one in a heart beat!

    Maybe that top secret next-gen supercar is a hybrid, or runs off leccy like Tesla’s efforts.
    And if you’re into eco-friendly cars, check out the July issue of Stuff. We’ve got a whole feature on the greenest machines around.

  3. 😀 The McLaren has always remained a fav of mine. No more trips to the States now. I’ll just wait 🙂
