The most revealing of them shows the front-end of the P13 as it powers around a corner, covered in camouflage and a sports bra, while the other is a close-up of its fixed dome-like roof. From what we can tell, the car appears to share many design elements with the mid-engine 650S, including the roofline, exterior mirrors, and headlamps with LED running lamps on their outboard edges, this time rendered in smooth light tubes.
The front fascia is clearly different, however, and the chin does not jut out as far as the ground-scraping 650S. The door cutline implies that the P13 could use the same swan-wing door design as other McLaren road cars, while a peek though the passenger window shows an air intake on the rear fender (versus mid-door for other McLarens) which would certainly help transmit some blissful sounds from the engine at full throttle.
Speaking of the engine, we don’t know much about the powertrain that will sit behind the P13’s lucky occupants, though we expect that it will be a version of McLaren’s turbocharged 3.8-liter V-8, detuned from the 641 hp it produces in the 650S to about 475–500 hp. And as with the 650S, we expect a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic to do the shifting.
It is fair to say, however, that the prices of its coupe and expected convertible versions will come in within spitting distance comparable Porsche Turbos, which means that you won’t probably won’t get too much change from your $200,000 bill.
