News McLaren Has Not Been Sold to Audi

McLaren Has Not Been Sold to Audi

In a brief but clear statement, McLaren confirms that they’ve not been bought


  • Or sold to anyone else for that matter.

  • Rumours had BMW interested in the brand.

  • And Audi was considering their F1 division.


Over the last few days, reports and rumours of McLaren being picked up by Audi or BMW have turned out to be baseless. In a very brief press release, perhaps one of the shortest we’ve ever seen, McLaren clears the air:

“McLaren Group is aware of a news media report stating it has been sold to Audi. This is wholly inaccurate and McLaren is seeking to have the story removed.

McLaren’s technology strategy has always involved ongoing discussions and collaboration with relevant partners and suppliers, including other carmakers, however, there has been no change in the ownership structure of the McLaren Group.”

BMW Will Not Buy McLaren; Audi Might be Interested

Despite this statement, nothing prevents Audi and McLaren from still talking. Time will tell if any of these rumours were based in some reality.
