Buy Used McLaren Models

From Bruce McLaren Motor Racing’s lightweight 1960s racecars and the founding of McLaren Cars in 1985 to McLaren Automotive’s range of super sports car models today, the British brand has a storied history. The Gordon Murray-designed 1992 McLaren F1 was a high point, but the company was dormant for several years before reinventing itself in 2010 and refocusing on its core values with the launch of its new McLaren car range, starting with the MP4-12C in 2011. Many McLaren models followed after that and the range now features a comprehensive range of new sports car variants that have stayed faithful to the automaker’s vision of building innovative, lightweight performance cars that explore new technical solutions and offer an exhilarating driving experience.

What to Consider Before Buying a McLaren Supercar

McLaren vehicles are very exclusive; the cheapest McLaren car costs around $225k, but the point of a McLaren is not to outprice a Ferrari. Instead, its goal is to accelerate, brake, and turn better than a Ferrari. This job is often achieved with aplomb, but build quality has still been lacking since its reemergence as a road car manufacturer. Most of the models in the McLaren lineup share these traits.


  • Eye-catching exterior design
  • Outstanding high-speed performance
  • Class-leading ride and handling
  • Wide variety of sports car types


  • Infotainment systems generally lacking
  • Limited driver-assistance features available
  • Styling is usually an afterthought and often generic
  • Build quality is generally subpar

FAQs About Buying A Car From McLaren

Why does the McLaren Artura have a 120-degree V6 engine?

McLaren used a 120-degree angle in preference to the usual 60- or 90-degree angles to flatten the engine out in the interest of a lower center of gravity and better engine cooling. It also allows more space for the V-mounted turbochargers. The V6 engine is also 110 pounds lighter than the existing McLaren V8.

Is the McLaren GT a genuine grand tourer?

The GT straddles the class between sports car and GT. It has better performance and handling than almost any other GT in its class, but the interior is not as luxurious or comfortable as rivals such as the Bentley Continental GT. It remains a genuine McLaren sports car but without the knife-edge handling and acceleration that characterizes most modes. However, its trump card is its very impressive 20.1 cubic feet of combined cargo space, which is better than either the Bentley or the Aston Martin DB11.

Can I get the McLaren Elva with a windscreen or roof?

In many international markets, the Elva has no roof or windscreen, in the best speedster tradition. In the US, it will be offered with a fixed windshield to make it road legal here. The windshield glass is heated and together with sun visors, rain-sensing wipers, and washer jets, the assembly adds 44 pounds to the vehicle’s weight. However, there is still no roof.

Can I still buy a McLaren Speedtail?

Unfortunately, all 106 new examples of the 250-mph, 1,035-horsepower hypercar have already been sold, but some will undoubtedly crop up at future auctions at even higher prices as collectors vie for the privilege of having a Speedtail in the garage.

What is the price of a new McLaren supercar?

Despite their extreme performance and pinpoint focus on handling, most McLaren models are actually reasonably priced for the segment. The GT is the most affordable at around $200k, but if you want sub-three-second 0-60 mph time of the 765LT Spider, you’ll have to pay closer to $400k.
