McLaren’s road-car lineup is about to grow yet again, with a car called the P13. Placed below the 12C, Motor Trend reports that the P13 is set to be the company’s highest-volume product when it arrives, probably in the 2014 calendar year.
Like the McLaren 12C, the P13 will seat just two, but with a trunk, too. If the car has any chance of hitting McLaren’s sales target of up to 2500 units sold per year around the world, the price will probably fall below $200,000. Currently, the McLaren 12C has a base price in the $240,000 range for a coupe.
Under the hood of this “base model” McLaren, we expect a detuned version of the 12C’s 616-hp twin-turbo V-8. With around 500-530 hp, the car would still have plenty of power yet fall well short of the more expensive 12C.
The new P1′s exterior styling looks like no other sports car at any price, and we’d be surprised if the P13 doesn’t adopt some of its big brother’s design cues. The report says the P13 may arrive in 2014.
