McLaren working on the P13, a new car positioned under the 12C

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 25, 2013

McLaren will soon introduce a car dubbed the P13, which is set to be the automaker’s highest-volume product. It will be positioned under the 12C and will likely arrive in the 2014 calendar year. Just like the McLaren 12C, the P13 will be a two-seater that comes with a trunk. It’s believed that the car will be priced lower than $200,000, for it to have a chance of reaching the company’s sales goal of as many as 2,500 units sold globally each year.

The current McLaren 12C has a starting price of about $240,000 range for a coupe. This “base model” McLaren is expected to be powered by a detuned version of the 12C’s 616-hp twin-turbo V-8 engine.

This car, which can deliver about 500-530hp, offers a lot of power but not enough to be comparable to that of the pricier 12C. The exterior styling of the new P1 is different from all other sports car. It’s believed that the P13 will feature some of the design cues of its bigger sibling.
