A DRIVE WITH McLAREN NEWPORT BEACH

In sun drenched Southern California, McLaren owners gather for a drive through Orange County.

Most car enthusiasts would count themselves lucky to see one McLaren P1™ on the road – there are only ever going to be 375 examples in the world, after all, so the chances of being in the right place at the right time are slim. The 650S and the 12C are righty considered rare too given their low production numbers relative to their peers from other manufactures. 

Imagine, then, seeing seven examples of the McLaren P1™ all at once, driving in convoy with a fleet of McLaren Super Series models in the evening sunshine. Southern California was definitely the right place to be, when McLaren Newport Beach organised a special McLaren P1™ customer drive from the dealership to the luxurious St. Regis Monarch Beach resort, about 17 miles (27km) south. The group arrived at McLaren Newport Beach at around 5pm, and then set off to cruise down the spectacular Pacific Coast Highway just as the sun was setting. With the golden light glinting off the cars, onlookers and beachside pedestrians all turned to view the train of McLaren supercars, their turbocharged V8s howling for all to hear. The response was uniformly positive, with big smiles, thumbs-ups and a lot of phone photos.

After arriving at the St. Regis Monarch Beach resort and taking in the views – both of the palm trees and ocean below, but also of the stunning line-up of cars at the front entrance – customers and guests enjoyed a cocktail reception and dinner. It was a convivial end to a short but memorable drive. 

 

Our thanks to McLaren Newport Beach for providing these fantastic photographs. The full set can be found on the McLaren Newport Beach Facebook page.
