50 glorious years of McLaren reviewed in brief
|   Friday, November 08, 2013
McLaren has been in business for a very long time, without letting anyone realise how ‘old' this company has grown. They have been a part of automobile market for 50 years, and have slowly made their way to top of this industry, and are still a growing entity.

There have been so many variations in all the cars that this company has produced in last 50 years. It is true that time flies, but McLaren has made most of the opportunity that they got.
It takes time to build a reputation, but only seconds to lose it. It is difficult to maintain a good impression on all car enthusiasts in these years, and have delivered more than what was expected, every time.

Bruce McLaren was responsible for laying foundation of this company. While establishing roots of this company, even he might not have been sure of how big this company would grow in these 50 years. He started this company as a small racing entity, and now it is one of biggest names in F1 racing circuit, and they have proven their worth on racing tracks and also out on roads.

With New Zealand roots, this company started out as Bruce McLaren Motor Racing in 1963. From then onwards, they have gone through some tough times, and some smooth days, but there has been no effect of these highs and lows on their customers whatsoever. That is true proof of a great company in making.

In their early days, McLaren had some major success on Chevrolet powered cars in Can Am races, and some of this credit goes to their team mate Denny Hulme as well. Cars like M6A through M8 were backbone of their success.

However, it was not until 1966 when this company first made their way into formula 1 racing, and right from beginning they came across as a strong and promising company and a force to reckon with. By the n Bruce McLaren had parted ways with Cooper and decided to bring name of his own company under spotlight.

Since then there has been a number of events in Formula 1 racing that can serve as milestone in history of McLaren as a company. There has been some major achievements and some upsets as well, but in totality, it has been a memorable time for McLaren as a company.

Names like Teddy Mayer and James Hunt come up for their contribution to bringing up name of this company to foreground. It was back then when rivalry between two big forces of racing world, Ferrari and McLaren had started. From then onwards, this rivalry has pleased and entertained millions of car racing fans all across this world.

There has been a number of tie ups, a number of records, great power, high speed and great design and interiors that this company has achieved over these years. Still, they have managed to keep their integrity intact amongst all these changes, and with their next release, McLaren P1, they continue to prosper.
