These acquisitions represent a historical event in the high-end vehicle retail market. There are only 31 Lamborghini dealerships in Northern America; Lamborghini Sterling is the first African American owned franchise in the manufacturer’s history. McLaren Sterling, one of only 18 McLaren dealerships in North America, is the first African American owned franchise.

Both the Lamborghini and McLaren manufacturer approvals are awarded to only the highest qualifying dealers. These two new franchises join Thomas A. Moorehead’s well-established BMW, Rolls-Royce, Mini and Harley-Davidson brands.

About Lamborghini

The Italian luxury sports car brand of Lamborghini made its debut in 1963. Creator Ferruccio Lamborghini, born in 1916, brought together the best manufacturers of the time to join him in his creation of a luxury sports car that would rival Ferrari. During early production he rolled up his sleeves to personally ensure his cars’ specifications were precise and reflected his unparalleled quest for excellence. Throughout subsequent decades, the Lamborghini brand has grown to be associated with pure driving fun and high-end performance. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth year of Ferruccio Lamborghini. In recognition of this milestone, the manufacturer has designed the Centenario, an innovative masterpiece pairing exceptional design to performance excellence for high-end sports car enthusiasts and collectors. Additionally, the Huracán Avio, a special series inspired by aeronautics, is part of this centennial celebration.

About McLaren

This British luxury sports vehicle was the brainchild of teenager Bruce McLaren, who started his racing career by modifying an Austin Ulster, a gift from his father. The McLaren pushes the limits in design and functionality offering three series: Sports Series, Super Series and Ultimate Series. McLaren has redefined the luxury sports car and racing car scene through aerodynamics, technology and design. They have maintained undisputed prominence in motor sports for over 45 years. McLaren Automotive boasts nearly 170 Formula One™ race wins and three Indy 500 titles; however, through the three series offered, one need not be a professional race car driver to experience the power of the McLaren.
