Who Owns McLaren? 

Though the brand was long owned by its founder, Bruce McLaren, it went public in 1970. The majority of shareholders have included Teddy Maye, Ron Dennis, and even Mercedes-Benz (Daimler Motors). Today, the largest shareholder is the Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, which is essentially the sovereign treasury for the Kingdom of Bahrain.

What Models Does McLaren Make? 

When it comes to supercars on the streets of West Palm Beach, you’d be hard pressed to find more thrilling models than those found in the current McLaren lineup:

  • McLaren 720S Spider
  • McLaren 765LT
  • McLaren 765LT Spider

Is a McLaren Faster Than a Lamborghini? 

In many cases, McLarens are faster than Lamborghinis. For example, compare the similarly priced McLaren Artura PHEV to the Lamborghini Huracán EVO to get a sense of just what kind of car a McLaren can be!

2022 McLaren Artura Specs 

  • Engine: M630 3.0L (2,993c) TwinTurbocharged V6 Engine and Hybrid Powertrain 680PS (585 PS ICE + 95 PS E-motor) / 720 Nm 
  • Horsepower: 680 hp 
  • Torque: 513 lb-ft 
  • Top Speed: 205 MPH 
  • 0-62 MPH: 3 seconds 
  • 0-124 MPH: 8.3 seconds

2021 Lamborghini Huracán EVO Specs

To top things off, the McLaren Artura is a PHEV. It offers Wellington drivers a dedicated electric mode with 19 miles of range. When in a hybrid model, gas consumption is still offset by battery and motor power, so you’ll get 50 mpge on the highway—exceptional numbers for any car, much less a supercar with 680 hp!
