McLaren Teams Up with BMW to Develop Next-Generation Drivetrains

British manufacturer has announced a new strategic partnership to design and develop for its next generation of powertrains. The new project, which is part of the company’s “Track22” business plan, includes six different partners, including the Group.

Details are scant as of this writing, but McLaren’s brief statement on the matter talks about “new combustion technology that will deliver a higher output per capacity than currently possible.” The British brand also aims to further reduce CO2 emissions, while simultaneously increasing engine output.

Supported and partly-funded by the British Government through the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), the collaboration also includes Ricardo, McLaren’s existing engine manufacturing partner. Grainger and Worrall will join in to deliver complex, lightweight casting technology, while Lentus Composite will contribute knowledge in specialist composite structure. Finally, the University of Bath will bring its advanced research and development capabilities in internal combustion engine systems efficiency.

“This is an exciting project that plays to the strengths of all partners. McLaren Automotive has an exceptional reputation for building the world’s finest engines, as showcased by our M838T and its previous category wins in the International Engine of the Year awards. We will continue to independently design and build our own engines, and the benefits of this project will help us accelerate the development of our next generation of powertrain,” said Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive.

The result of this collaboration will most likely motivate all future McLarens, including the successor to the and the next-generation Super Series.
