If you’ve ever drooled a bit over a parked McLaren on the street, then you’ve got something in common with Apple.

The current rumor has it that Apple has approached British supercar-maker McLaren to discuss an acquisition or a strategic investment in the firm. The talks are said to have been in progress for several months.

McLaren is best known for its Formula One racing team and also has a fast-growing road cars division that started up less than a year ago. The company has also received accolades for its million-dollar P1 hybrid hypercar and its line of supercars. McLaren also has a large consulting division and a technologies group that acts as a parts supplier to other carmakers and race teams.

Some nifty stuff might in be coming down the pipe for iWork.

On Tuesday, Apple released Pages 6.0, Keynote 7.0 and Numbers 4.0 via the Mac App Store. The updates deliver the real-time, cross-platform iWork collaboration that the company promised earlier this month.

In addition to the updates, Apple is apparently working on real-time collaboration features for the suite. This would allow users to edit presentations, documents or spreadsheets with others at the same time across iOS, macOS and web.
