British supercar manufacturer, McLaren, used the freshly laid floor of its new £50m facility in Rotherham to showcase its latest supercar, called the McLaren Senna, for the first time.

Supporting the firm’s objective of producing more than 4,500 vehicles annually by the end of 2022, the £50m McLaren Composites Technology Centre (MCTC) was announced in February 2017. Exemplifying engineering excellence, it will enable the development and manufacture of carbon fibre chassis used in future McLaren models.

The 75,000 sq ft centre is part of one of Rotherham’s key assets, the globally renowned Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP), and is set to open later this year to start building carbon fibre development tubs, with full operation planned for 2019.
