BERLIN (Reuters) – McLaren Automotive said Monday reports that the company was sold to Audi were inaccurate after an article in auto publication Autocar earlier in the day stated that a deal had been made.
“The McLaren Group is aware of a media report stating that it was sold to Audi. This is completely inaccurate and McLaren is striving to remove the story,” said a company spokesman.
When asked whether there were talks with Audi, the spokesman did not answer directly.
“McLaren’s technology strategy has always involved ongoing discussions and collaboration with relevant partners and suppliers, including other automakers, but the McLaren Group’s ownership structure has not changed,” they said.
Audi told Reuters that it was examining “various ideas for cooperation,” but neither confirmed nor denied whether a possible sale was being discussed with McLaren.
