McLaren has released a new teaser image with their entry-level model called Sports Series set to be unveiled in 2015.

Codenamed P13, McLaren's more affordable model is estimated to cost around $180,000 in United States which will make it a lot cheaper than the 650S Coupe priced at $270,000. As seen in previous spy shots, the model will borrow some styling cues from the 650S and P1 but will obviously be considerably smaller and come with a different rear diffuser, unique taillights and narrower side vents while the butterfly doors will be kept.

McLaren hasn't provided any details as to what will power the Sports Series but chances are it will be a detuned version of the 3.8-liter V8 twin-turbo that will generate less than 600 HP (441 kW) to distance itself enough from the 625C.

Described as being a "pure McLaren", the Sports Series is expected to be fully revealed on April 1 at the 2015 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) and will be followed shortly by a Spider derivative. The British marque wants to sell 2,000 units of their new entry-level model in 2016, a quantity which they say won't have a negative impact on the company's exclusivity.
