McLaren to open new regional HQ in Bahrain

The McLaren Group have announced plans to open a new regional headquarters in Bahrain.

McLaren Automotive, the sports car branch of the group which was launched last month in London, are to operate out of Bahrain offices for reasons of proximity to business links, such as the Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company which owns a stake in the McLaren Group. The nearby Sakhir racetrack also informed the decision.

“We will soon start announcing our first dealerships in the region,” said Ian Gorsuch, the McLaren Automotive Asia Pacific, Africa and Middle East regional director.

“All distributor-side management, marketing and support functions for the premium high-performance sports car manufacturer will be managed from our new offices.”
