A McLaren representative has announced their road-going models will not make use of a Honda engine.

A McLaren representative has announced their road-going models will not make use of a Honda engine.

Back in May last year, Honda disclosed plans to make a Formula 1 return in 2015 when they will power McLaren but the deal between the two parties won't be extended onto road-legal cars as the British marque wants to keep their cars "pure McLaren."

In an interview with Drive.com.au, McLaren's director for global sales and marketing Jolyon Nash clearly specified "there's no intention for a partnership with Honda" adding that "It won't happen. I mean that in the nicest way, as we are an independent company - we produce pure McLarens."

However, we should remind you that McLaren F1 boss Martin Whitmarsh said last year they are open to a broader collaboration with Honda.
