To celebrate the opening of McLaren Abu Dhabi, McLaren Automotive has released a short film entitled “McLaren 12C finds ‘The Perfect Line’ at Yas Marina Circuit”. The video is the latest in a series by the British sports car company to mark its expansion across the globe.
McLaren Automotive Regional Director, Middle East and Africa, Mark Harrison, said: “We wanted to produce this video to highlight our presence across the Middle East and reaffirm our commitment to establishing our brand in the region. The 12C is as comfortable on the road as a premium sedan, yet faster than any competitor car in its segment and this excellent video shows this fact; capturing the beauty of the desert, the emotion of the urban environment and the drama of a world famous Formula 1 circuit – three locations where the 12C is supremely confident.”
The film was shot over a period of six days using the latest in RED camera technology; a cutting-edge approach to film-making giving extremely high definition quality footage more commonly found in cinematic films. An additional benefit of the RAW footage, which is shot in four times higher resolution than traditional High Definition (HD), is that it is extremely versatile. Additional footage was shot on a pre-release of Canon’s latest flagship DSLR camera, the 1DX.
The launch of the McLaren Abu Dhabi showroom marks the launch of the fourth retailer in the new McLaren Middle East network, which will grow to six state-of-the-art locations by summer 2012. These include McLaren Abu Dhabi, McLaren Bahrain, McLaren Doha, McLaren Dubai, McLaren Jeddah and McLaren Kuwait.
