Sports car producer McLaren Automotive has announced plans for its first Scottish dealership.

McLaren Glasgow will be based in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, and offer high-performance cars, including the recently-launched McLaren 650S Coupe and 650S Spider.

The dealership will be run by Park's Motor Group.

McLaren Glasgow will be the car maker's fourth location in the UK, after London, Birmingham and Manchester.

Construction of a new showroom will be completed late this year, with an official opening planned for December.

Park's Motor Group will provide a temporary facility for sales and after-sales from the end of May.

Ross Park, director at Park's Motor Group, said: "We are really excited and proud to join the McLaren family and represent the brand in Scotland.

"As a company, we share the same brand values and goals as McLaren, striving to offer our customers the best in terms of service and expertise, and will use the experience and knowledge we have to deliver the highest levels of customer satisfaction."

David Brimson, European director for McLaren Automotive, added: "The addition of McLaren Glasgow to the retail network is another key step in our growth plan in Europe."
