The market has been rife with rumours that Audi has bought (or is set to buy) McLaren Automotive. Have you heard this? We have no idea where this all started, but McLaren moved fast this week to scrub out the rumour as quickly as it started.
So it’s official and we heard it from the ever-reliable Reuters: McLaren has denied a report that Volkswagen AG’s Audi had bought the company. That’s that then.
Well, not quite. The denial came with a caveat that seems to hint at the possibility of potential collaborations “with relevant partners and suppliers.” So keep an eye on this one as it might not be over yet.
