Park’s Motor Group will provide a temporary facility for sales and aftersales from the end of May.
Commenting on the appointment, Ross Park, Director at Park’s Motor Group explained: “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.”
