McLaren P13 will be inspired by the P1 hypercar

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 26, 2013

McLaren P13 a.k.a. company’s 911-rival will feature a design inspired by the P1 hypercar, according to the latest reports from AutoExpress. Although many of you folks believed that McLaren P13 will take styling inspiration from the 12C, it appears that the P1 will be the car that will influence the P13 looks and this was confirmed by a well placed source.

The first spy shots that caught the P13 using a 12C body and showed stylish wraparound headlights and large air intakes. It is believed that the 911-rival from McLaren will cost around 140,000 euros or almost $194,000.

The P13 will weigh less than the 1,434 kg 12C and significantly less than the 1,600 911 Turbo S, while under its hood we will see the same 3.8-liter V8 turbo engine used by the 12C and P1, rated at 450 hp. Still, we wouldn’t expect the P13 to be a rival for the 911 Turbo which is capable to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds using the PDK and all-wheel drive.

Same sources confirmed the fact that McLaren is almost done with the development work on the new P13, which means that the launch is not to too far away.

Last year, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren’s project director said that the company needs three or four years to develop a new car and at that time the British carmaker had already been working on the P13 for two years. This means that we could see the new McLaren P13 in late 2014 and will go on sale in early 2015.
