20 Things You Didn’t Know about McLaren

McLaren is a name synonymous with some of the fastest and most powerful cars on the planet. This British automaker runs its operation out of the McLaren Technology campus of Woking, Surrey in the United Kingdom. The first iteration of the McLaren motor company was founded in 1963 by driver Bruce McLaren himself. The original firm was known as Bruce McLaren Motor racing. After seventeen years in the business, they merged with Ron Dennis’ Project 4 Racing team. Just 5 years later, McLaren Automotive’s predecessor, McLaren Cars, was founded by Ron Dennis.

In 2017, the overarching McLaren Technology Group (a firm that owns several motorsport, automotive, and technological subsidiaries) completed its purchase of McLaren Automotive. This company is now a subsidiary, functioning much like an individual department would at a smaller firm. McLaren has created some of the most mechanically-impressive cars ever constructed. Three of the most famous McLaren cars are the F1, P1, and 12C – names which most auto enthusiasts recognize. The newest car that McLaren is set to add to its lineup would be the McLaren Senna. This car produces 789 horsepower from its 4.0-liter V8 engine. This impressive power, combined with its extremely light body weight, makes this a formidable track car. Plus, the aerodynamic style doubles as an exercise in aesthetics.
