The goal of McLaren’s new project is to increase the output per capacity of its engines while reducing emissions. More powerful engines that pollute less sounds like an oxymoron but with all the engine tech being developed nowadays such a goal isn’t impossible to achieve. In a statement attached to the announcement, McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt described how the partnership fits into the automaker’s ambitious Track22 plan
. “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, as confirmed in our recently-announced Track22 business plan,” Flewitt said.
