This is the case of McLaren and the recent presentation of its new Artura model, an event attended by our CEO, Mr. Narcís Socías, on behalf of Andorra Sotheby’s International Realty. Although it is not the first hybrid model of the brand, it is the first to be manufactured in series, and the first units will be delivered to customers this year.
