MCLAREN Bristol is to be the manufacturer’s sixth retailer in the UK.
It will be responsible for the south-west of England, complementing the existing McLaren Automotive UK retailer network of London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and, most recently, Ascot.
To be operated by Rybrook Holdings, which already runs McLaren Birmingham, the showroom at The Laurels, Cribbs Causeway, is expected to be up and running in the second quarter of next year. The timing of the appointment comes soon after the start of production of the new Sports Series, and McLaren Bristol will provide sales and aftersales services for all three tiers of McLaren models: Sports Series, Super Series and Ultimate Series.
Jon Pollock, McLaren Automotive’s Europe regional director, said: ‘We are pleased to announce this important appointment in the representation of the McLaren brand in the UK. Rybrook Holdings is already an important business partner, operating one of the retailers which the McLaren brand launched with in 2011, and this latest location in Bristol is perfectly situated to help support customers in this vital area of the UK – our third largest market globally.’
Henry Whale, the managing director of Rybrook Holdings, said: ‘The appointment of McLaren Bristol is an important step for Rybrook and the representation of McLaren. McLaren Birmingham has been a great success for Rybrook and we look forward to the same achievements from the new facility in Bristol.’
