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.

  • 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!
