McLaren Plotting P13 Sportscar to Rival 911?
If you thought McLaren was a one trick pony- neigh. What used to be a single sportscar (the MP4-12C) quickly turned into two (the P1), and now, as McLaren plans to expand its threshold yet again, another new Brit is expected to be turning heads- and wallets- in the very near future. Codenamed the "P13", new reports from Motor Trend say the smallest car in the McLaren lineup is expected to be slotted somewhere just underneath the MP4 in terms of size and price. Closer in relation to the top-end Porsche 911.
The two-seat, sub $200K sportscar should take hold of a detuned twin-turbo V8 courtesy of the MP4-12C pushing around the 500 mark. Design cues will also be more resembling of the P1 hypercar- bloated angles and all. With the P1 stripping nude this year, we expect the baby McLaren sometime in the 2014 calendar year.
