Set to go on sale in 2015

Development work continues on the 2015 McLaren P13 as our spies have caught the model undergoing testing on the Nürburgring.

Snapped wearing a 12C Spider body, the development mule is being used to test McLaren's highly-anticipated entry-level sports car. While there isn't much to see, Ron Dennis has previously confirmed the model will use a carbon fiber MonoCell that is similar to the one used on the MP4-12C.

Power will likely be provided by a 3.8-liter V8 engine that develops approximately 450 bhp (335 kW). It will be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which could enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than four seconds and hit a top speed of roughly 322 km/h (200 mph).

McLaren expects to sell 2,500 P13s annually and pricing will start at approximately £120,000 ($184,860 / €139,345).

The biggest con in motoring. Everything from the entry level to the top of the range P1 uses a 3.8ltr V8. The only difference is the turbo boost. I might as well buy the smallest one & boost it to 616bhp.

Have you looked at the 911? It's pretty much the same thing. A 3.8 litre boxer six in everything form the base modell to the Turbo S. That doesnt mean its the "same" engine though. There are a lot of differences, in the Porsches as well as the McLarens. In the P1 for example there are electric motors and probably different turbos, intercoolers etc than in the 12C. This P13 might not even have a turbo, much like a base 911.
