The loss-making British automotive group is far more than just a Formula 1 team and supercar manufacturer. It has a tradition for innovation stretching back decades, including the first carbon fibre car in Formula 1 and the first carbon fibre-bodied road car, the McLaren F1

Earlier this morning, the Financial Times reported that Apple was in talks to buy McLaren, citing three different unnamed sources. But jalopnik.com just spoke with officials at McLaren, and they claim none of it is true. At all.

“We can confirm that McLaren is not in discussion with Apple in respect of any potential investment,” McLaren’s terse, one-line official statement reads.

A source that jalopnik spoke to at McLaren went further, saying there was zero truth to the rumor. “It’s not true at all. There’s no chatter, there’s no acquisition,” the source said.

Mumtalakat only owns half of the automotive group, and not any portion of the valuable Applied Technologies Group or the Formula One team.
