The brand new 720S is making its debut during the exhibition for the Dutch public.
According to Ronald Kooyman, director of the Louwman Museum, the exhibition gives a good impression of the brand: “McLaren has a wonderful history that we show to the general public through a special collection of cars. There are unique cars that have rarely or never been exhibited before. ”
Arjen van Beek, director of Louwman Exclusive, the Dutch importer of McLaren, about the initiative:
“The exhibition is important for the British brand. Not only do we show that McLaren has a rich history with great successes, the exhibition also makes it clear that today's cars benefit from the knowledge and experience gained in motor sport. Whoever chooses a McLaren, chooses a car brand to be proud of. ”
