Article by Christian Andrei, on December 11, 2013

If yesterday it was just a rumor, today it was confirmed: McLaren officially announced its entry-level model codenamed P13. Set to arrive in 2015, the new McLaren will carry a price tag of 120,000 GBP or about $197,000. Moreover, it will be powered by a detuned version of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine found on both the MP4-12C and the P1 hypercar.

Still, on the P13, the V8 engine is rated at 444 hp, while in the MP4-12C it produces 616 hp and 737 hp in the P1. McLaren Automotive European sales chief David Brimson said that the P13 will be a true high-performance sports car with the same DNA as the 12C and P1.

Regarding the design, the McLaren P13 will borrow many styling cues from the P1 and you can easily see this from the official sketch released by the British manufacturer. McLaren is going to debut the P13 in September, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, while sales are expected to start in the spring of 2015.
