McLaren has renewed its contract with engine supplier Ricardo for a third time, securing a powertrain partner to propel its cars until at least 2025.
UK-based Ricardo has been McLaren’s sole engine manufacturer since 2011, supplying more than 15,000 units to date. Five thousand of those were built in the past year alone due to the increasing popularity of the McLaren line-up.
Ricardo’s building of McLaren-designed engines began with the MP4-12C in 2011 and has included the P1 hybrid hypercar’s. The relationship goes back to the original McLaren F1, for which Ricardo supplied the transmission.
