Hot Cars Arrive in StylePosted: Updated:
(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) It's been 22 years since McLaren was last in Arizona. The team arrived in Phoenix with untested and unassembled pieces of a new Formula One racer, the MP4/6. The car was completed just hours before the first session of the 1991 Formula One season, but the new McLaren would prove unstoppable in the hands of racing legend Ayrton Senna who promptly left the competition behind. McLaren has never lost in Arizona, and now, we're back.
McLaren Scottsdale is now open for business. The dealership will hold a grand opening celebration in the near future, but interested parties are invited to visit the new 10,000 square foot facility and browse the inventory of new and pre-owned exotic cars currently in stock.
McLaren cars are characterized by innovative F1-inspired technology like brake steering, electronically controlled suspension damping and carbon fiber chassis construction. Thanks to these advancements, the McLaren Mp4-12C Coupe and 12C Spider are some of the fastest and most capable vehicles on the road. The newest model, the McLaren P1™, produces 903 horsepower and has a starting price of around $1.15 million.
Among the high-end amenities, Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale offers a technology specialist to cater to guests needs, private concierge and relaxing shuttle service and a state-of-the-art beverage station, just to name a few.
Owned by Chuck and Anita Theisen, the new Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale dealership will replace Theisen’s Phoenix Motor Company dealership at 3rd Avenue and Indian School Road, which has been in business for 45 years. Theisen, a Scottsdale Saguaro High School Grad says he’s proud to be running his business in the same city he grew up in.
“We are thrilled to now give the City of Scottsdale and downtown Scottsdale its own family owned Mercedes-Benz dealership. Between our state-of-the-art facilities with incredible architectural detail, high-quality of service and close proximity to customers and Fashion Square, this spot was the perfect location,” said owner Chuck Theisen.
