For those of you who understand something more about the auto industry, manufacture and licensing: Why hasn't any other company built a car around the McLaren F-1's BMW V-12 engine? Is it because they had an exclusive agreement with McLaren? What about MB and the V-12 in the Zonda? I have thought a lot about why a small company trying to break into the "supercar" market wouldn't go with an MB or BMW engine like these companies did. If they are touted as such miraculous engines, why not buy them? Saleen and Koenigsegg obviously like the simpler Ford V-8's, probably for affordable repair and familiar design for many technicians. But given the high ($400k+) price tags of both those cars, it doesn't make sense they couldn't plunk down some more cash for the BMW engine. One last engine question: how do you buy just the engines? Contact the company's corporate sales dept. and just say, I want 40 of X engine, in crates?
