The Financial Times recently reported that Apple were looking to either buy supercar maker McLaren or to make a strategic investment in them.
McLaren has now denied the rumors and you can see an official statement that they gave to Business Insider below.
“There’s no takeover, no strategic investment,” a McLaren spokesperson told Business Insider. “It’s completely untrue.”
There is the possibility that McLaren and Apple have been in talks, as McLaren gave the New York Times the following statement.
“The nature of our business means we regularly have conversations with all sorts of parties, but those conversations remain confidential,” “We’re not in a position to confirm or deny any previous conversation.”
There have been rumors for a while that Apple have been either looking to acquire or partner with car companies for its Apple Car project. Recent rumors have suggested that Apple has had a restructuring within its project.
The Apple Car is rumored to launch some time in 2020, although whether Apple will keep to this rumored launch date, remains to be seen.
