Cleanliness is next to Godliness: Autoblog visits McLaren

Nic Cackett

Autoblog UK was invited to McLaren's Technology Centre in Woking yesterday for a closer look at the new MP4-12C and to tour round the facility that houses both the F1 team and the automotive division of the company.

Prior to the visit we'd been warned that McLaren's headquarters was a temple to the virtues of sterility, and could easily be mistaken for a Bond villain's evil lair.

That opinion may be the product of an overactive imagination, but there is something undeniably special about the building that distinguishes it from being just another Surrey office block.
