The next time you drive past Leng Kee Road, take a glance towards the Wearnes Automotive premises, for there lies history in the making. McLaren Singapore has officially opened a showroom here in sunny Singapore. It is the retail front of the company that has also set up it's Asia Pacific operations here in the form of McLaren Automotive Asia Pte Ltd, which will manage other retailers in Australia, Hong Kong and Japan.

Ron Dennis, Executive Chairman, McLaren Automotive and McLaren Group, was there to grace the event and declare the showroom officially open in front of local automotive media yesterday.

The first thing you will notice as you enter the showroom, is the actual F1 car that Lewis Hamilton drove past the chequered flag to claim his victory at the very first Singapore Grand Prix.

Proceed further and you'll notice displays that will allow customers to select from a range of exterior and interior finishes. Here, customers can customise their McLaren supercar as well. A range of McLaren lifestyle merchandise is also made available to customers.

The showroom also houses a fully equipped official service centre that is staffed by technicians who have received full technical training at McLaren’s headquarters in Woking.

Typically McLaren, the service bay is clinically clean, and like a Formula One™ pit-stop garage, all parts are ready and waiting for customers to ensure minimal or no waiting time.

The McLaren Showroom is located at 45 Leng Kee Road, Singapore 159103.

The luscious MP4-12C in Volcano Red was the beauty among the thorns at the launch.
