Santander Consumer Finance (SCF) has been selected by McLaren Financial Services to be its exclusive financial partner for the UK market - paving the way for flexible finance on the British-built supercars. 

The agreement will allow retailers to offer flexible motor finance packages to new or used McLaren Automotive customers and follows the expansion of the Woking-based brand's UK franchised retail network.

McLaren Automotive Europe’s managing director, David Gilbert, said: “This new agreement with Santander Consumer Finance brings the dream of owning a McLaren a step closer to an expanding home market of supercar enthusiasts.”

The network has eight UK locations, Ascot, Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds, Hatfield, London and Manchester.

The expansion follows the news of robust growth McLaren’s home market, which saw a record 550 cars sold in 2017.

Santander Consumer Finance’s commercial director, Stewart Grant (pictured), said: “Our new agreement with McLaren is a thrilling evolution in our partnership strategy. 

"We are proud to be working with a world-renowned and local brand that is powered by uncompromising design and engineering innovation.

“We share a commitment to developing long-term relationships with our customers and our aim is to extend McLaren’s product and service excellence so that new customer segments can experience the unique thrill of owning a McLaren supercar.”
