Care to guess how many McLaren cars have been sold in the United States since the first delivery in December 2011?

The answer is 5,000 of the collectible sports cars, a figure that represents more than one-third of the company’s production in the last seven years.

The 5,000th McLaren sold in the U.S. was a 570S Spider in Silica White, delivered to Gary Leach, a doctor in California. He told McLaren the car “really appealed to me as an amazing combination of a car that can be comfortable and enjoyable for a daily driver, but that has the performance, gearshift and brakes that will allow me to fully enjoy it on a track day.”

McLaren Automotive North America has 22 retail dealerships in North America, and expects to add to that number soon. McLaren also expects to launch another dozen models by 2022, with half of them having hybrid powertrains.
