McLarens in the supercar maker’s certified pre-owned program have gone through what the company calls a rigorous program.
The company says the cars in the program have gone through a complete inspection and are in prime condition.
The CPO cars also come with a one-year warranty.
Used-car pricing have been going nuts for months. We’ve done several stories with a bunch of explanations from the chip shortage to the rental car shortage, all looking at why used-car prices are skyrocketing—in some cases to higher than what the car cost when new. Sounds like a certified pre-owned program would be a great way to capitalize on the craze and give customers a little peace of mind to boot. Even a supercar maker like McLaren is getting in on the act.
For a McLaren to get the automaker’s certified stamp of approval, the company says it must be in “prime” condition and pass a comprehensive, multi-point exam. McLaren says the exam includes checking that each car has received all servicing and maintenance and has McLaren approved tires with at least 3 mm of tread left. It will be prepped so it is “immaculate” inside and out, the company says, and will only be fitted with genuine McLaren parts.
“Fifty years of motor-racing has instilled in us the importance of qualifying, of starting each race in the best possible position, of making sure every single element of our cars is tuned and performing to perfection,” the automaker said. “This is why we put everyone of our pre-owned McLarens through the same rigorous checking process. It’s your reassurance that every certified pre-owned McLaren is in first-class condition.”
Each CPO McLaren will have a one-year warranty, minimum, including road-side assistance. There is no mileage limit, and the warranty covers the cost of parts and labor for eligible repairs done at McLaren dealers and service centers by McLaren-trained technicians. The warranty covers all factory fitted components with no limit to the number of claims and is upgradable to two years if you wish.
The CPO program includes some of the same opportunities as a customer buying a new McLaren such as access to the “ever-expanding” McLaren events calendar.
“Our mission is not only to build the best supercars in the world, but also to offer the best ownership experience,” said McLaren Automotive boss Mike Flewitt. “McLaren Certified delivers that commitment on pre-owned McLaren cars from our retailers through the promise of quality and exclusivity with full factory support.”
