AutoComplete: McLaren denies rumored Apple takeover talks

Roadshow
Today is Wednesday, September 21st, and here's what's making news on Road Show. The rapid convergence between Silicon Valley and the automotive world could be about to take a giant step forward. According to the Financial Times, Apple has been in talks for months with super car maker and F1 staple McLaren about a possible take over. The British company's expertise in advance lightweight materials, vehicle dynamics and manufacturing would seem to make them a prime fit. Reportedly valued between 1.3 and $1,9 billion, McLaren could be Apple's biggest acquisition since Beats Electronics. And breathe new life into its shadowy Project Titan autonomous EV. If you want a bit of sport with your utility, Mini's got the car for you. The new Mini John Cooper Works Clubman takes the capability of the Clubman and adds a 228-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Adding to its sporty street cred are a lowered suspension, a sports exhaust, sport seats, and [UNKNOWN] brakes. A six-speed manual is standard as is all wheel drive. It'll go on sale in December, which is perfect since it sounds great in the snow. Are you looking for the fanciest Subaru Outback in town? Well, say hello to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain. In essence, it's a lifted up version of the E-Class wagon with a bit more off-road tread and all of the luxury you'd expect from a Mercedes. It'll debut at the Paris Motor Show next week, but sadly it's not currently slated for sale in the United States. Bummer. Find more on these stories over at seeroadshow.com and we'll talk to you tomorrow.
