McLaren Beverly Hills named McLaren Automotive Global Retailer of the Year 2018

20 Mar 2019

  • McLaren Beverly Hills crowned as top performer from McLaren’s global network of 91 retailers
  • Fourth edition of the awards recognizes business performance and outstanding customer service
  • North America celebrates four retailers in McLaren’s top 12 Premier Club

McLaren Beverly Hills has been named McLaren Automotive’s Global Retailer of the Year 2018 in recognition of the highest standards of business operation, whilst also helping contribute to another record sales year for McLaren Automotive in North America.

The retailer, which is part of O’Gara Group and an Official McLaren Motorsport Retailer, won the overall top honor by outscoring McLaren retailers at 91 locations in 31 different markets around the world. All contenders were meticulously benchmarked and assessed in key areas such as sales, customer service, aftersales and marketing.

In addition, three other McLaren North American retailers; McLaren Philadelphia, McLaren San Francisco, and last year’s retailer of the year, McLaren Toronto, were all nominated to the exclusive Premier Club that recognizes the exceptional performance of the top 12 global retailers.

Other global McLaren retailers celebrating award winning performances in 2018 included McLaren Glasgow nominated as top European retailer, McLaren Taipei in Asia Pacific and McLaren Mexico City in the MEAFLA region.

“I would like to congratulate McLaren Beverly Hills on claiming the McLaren Global Retailer of the Year Award,” said Tony Joseph, President of McLaren North America. “It’s an especially impressive performance considering that the O’Gara Group only took on the franchise in late 2017 and have succeeded in taking their performance in sales and service to a world beating level in only 12 months”.

Adds McLaren Beverly Hills CEO, Tom O’ Gara; “At McLaren Beverly Hills we don’t just sell McLarens, we inspire our customers to enjoy, drive and race their cars. We are as much enthusiasts and motorsports fans as they are and we are thrilled that McLaren has recognised the passion and spirit that we bring to this business and our attention to customer care and service”

McLaren Beverly Hills is managed by the O’Gara Group from the following address:

8833 West Olympic Blvd
Beverly Hills
California

About McLaren Automotive:

McLaren Automotive is a creator of luxury, high-performance sportscars and supercars.

Every vehicle is hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, Surrey, England.

Launched in 2010, the company is now the largest part of the McLaren Group.

The company has three defined product families: Sports Series, Super Series and Ultimate Series which are retailed through over 80 retailers in 30 markets around the world.

McLaren is a pioneer that continuously pushes the boundaries. In 1981, it introduced lightweight and strong carbon fibre chassis into Formula 1 with the McLaren MP4/1. Then in 1993 it designed and built the McLaren F1 road car - the company has not built a car without a carbon fibre chassis since. As part of the Ultimate Series, McLaren was the first to deliver a hybrid hypercar, the McLaren P1™.

Announced at Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2018, the company’s Track25 business plan will see it invest £1.2billion in research and development to deliver 18 new cars or derivatives by the end of 2025.

2017 saw the company launch further models including the second-generation Super Series, the 570S Spider and the McLaren Senna. In 2018, the company launched the 600LT and the first two cars of Track25, the McLaren Speedtail, the next Ultimate Series and McLaren’s first ever Hyper-GT, and 720S Spider. In 2019 the 600LT Spider was confirmed as the third car of Track25, with a new GT car announced and the previously-confirmed track-only Senna GTR unveiled.

To support the development, engineering and manufacture of its range of innovative sportscars and supercars, McLaren Automotive partners with world leading companies to provide specialist expertise and technology. These include AkzoNobel, OnePlus, Pirelli and Richard Mille.
