GM and McLaren

Discussion in '1994 McLaren F1' started by Z06nutSS405, Apr 26, 2004.

  1. Is there a Gm and McLaren partnership? The 2001 Cadillac LMP car had Mclaren turbos or something from McLaren. And the old McLaren racers had Chevy V8s. Is there something going on?
     
  2. Re:

    the old McLaren Can-Am racers used to be Chevy-powered. but the Cadillac LMP has nothing to do with McLaren at all.

    let me clarify myself. Cadillac got help from McLaren Performance Technologies, Inc. which has NOTHING to do with the McLaren F1 team or its associates.

    like i said, Cadillac didnt get help from the McLaren Formula-1 team. they got help from the McLaren Performance Technologies, Inc. in Livonia, Michigan that was a remenant of the old McLaren Can-Am days with Bruce McLaren and David Hulme. here is their main page:

    today, McLaren International and McLaren Performance Technologies, Inc. are distant cousins of the same predecessor.

  11. Re:

    Wow. So many people that don't know anything. Mercedes-Benz has a "partnership" with McLaren Internaional -- Mercedes owns 40% of McLaren. Mercedes also has a partnership with Damler-Chrysler evident in the ME Four-Twelve. There is NO direct linkage between McLaren and Chrysler.
