McLaren SLR 722

Our source at Autoblog found out that Mercedes-Benz is planning to buy share in McLaren. When they asked for verification they simply got the answer: ”No comment”. Daimler has already 40 % in his hands, the onther 60 % are shared between team principal Ron Dennis and his Saudi business partner Mansour Ojjeh (at 15% each) and Bahraini holding company Mumtalakat, to which Dennis and Ojjeh sold 30% last year. Daimler therefore has the largest interest in McLaren, but if it wanted to take complete control it would have to negotiate with the three other shareholders, or else take controlling interest of 55 or 70% by buying out either Dennis, Ojjeh or the Bahraini partners.
