McLaren P13 on sale by early 2015

McLaren MP4-12C

The McLaren P13 will be the company’s entry-level model, sitting beneath the 12C. According to Auto Express the P13 will make its show debut in late 2014 before going on sale in early 2015.

Expected to be lighter than the 1434kg 12C, the P13 will use the now familiar 3.8 litre V8 twin turbo. Power will be restricted to around 335kW, well below the 460kW (625PS) found in the 12C.

Keeping a mid-engine layout the P13 will be rear-wheel drive only and is said to target the all-wheel drive Porsche 911 Turbo. Although, with its power being sent only to the rear don’t expect the P13 to match the 3.1 second 0–100km/h time achieved by the 911 Turbo.

UK pricing for the P13 is tipped to be around £120,000 which is line ball with, you guessed it, the 911 Turbo and £50K less than the 12C.
