British supercar maker McLaren has confirmed that it did hold talks with technology giant Apple a few months back.
The news was confirmed by McLaren CEO Mike Flewett, but Flewitt confirmed that the tech giant did come and visit the British carmaker and held talks with them.
Speaking to Reuters, Flewitt said, "They visited. We talked. We talked about what they did. We talked about what we did. They toured."
However, Flewitt stated that while talks were held, a definitive proposition from the American company was never put on the table. "There wasn't a bid from Apple," said Flewitt.
McLaren started building cars in 2011 and despite being a new player in the supercar game, the British carmaker has steadily emerged as a definite rival for Ferrari and Lamborghini.
Thanks to this healthy growth, McLaren has been the subject of numerous bids by larger companies looking to profit by snapping it up at a bargain price.
However, McLaren and its shareholders have rejected all the bids including the latest one by a Chinese company which was supported by the former boss of the F1 team Ron Dennis, who was forced out by the other investors following the failed bid.
