New McLaren P13 - TopSpeed Rendering
The above rendering was fairly straightforward to create, as all of the reports point to the P13 being essentially a downsized 12C with a few cues from the P1. Nearly all of the P1 cues are up front, including the nose and headlights. We’ll continue to update this rendering as more information comes forward.
New McLaren P13 -Exterior
The official sketch drawn up by McLaren design chief, Frank Stephenson, gives us a pretty clear look at the side profile of the P13. We don’t know if our eyes are deceiving us, but the first time we saw the sketch, our gaze went straight to those abnormally large wheels, at least relative to the P13’s body. But once we got our bearings right, we don’t think that the sketch is properly scaled so we just left it be.
Now, as far as the design of the P13 is concerned, we definitely see some similarities to the P1 hypercar, particularly the headlights setup. The P13 also looks to ride a little higher than the P1 and the noticeable absence of a rear wing clearly suggests that it doesn’t have all the goodies that come with its big brother. Still, the staple dome-like roof is present on the P13, as is the side ducts whose design resembles the McLaren logo.
DrivetrainAll those rumors that the P13 would carry a de-tuned version of the 12C’s twin-turbo V-8 engine are apparently true. The P13 will carry a 3.8-liter, V-8 engine that has an output of 444 horsepower. No further details on performance numbers, but if we’re to base it on the numbers of the 12C, our guess is that the P13 will also be able to produce around 350 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to hit 60 mph in about four seconds to go with a top speed of about 190 mph.
Despite being slotted below the 12C, the P13 is still one to contend with, something McLaren Automotive European sales chief, David Brimson, said as much when he described the new model as "a true high-performance sports car with the same DNA as the 12C and P1".
