McLaren P13

Not a competitor to the M4 but this is going to be big. McLaren is introducing a "sports car series" to complete with select Carrera models and the Mercedes GT. Unconfirmed specs are 3.8 V8 tt producing 500-550 hp priced at $195,000. This will be the first sports car to offer a carbon tub in the target price range.

I've been invited to the premier by Long Island Sports Cars at this years NYIAS.

IMHO this is the car of the decade.

Hopefully they can add some personality to this one.

Been in the rest of their line up at the track, while being very fast, it lacked character.

I was thinking the same thing. Surely at $195k, I'd expect it to blow it's doors off as well.

I think they've had enough feed back to consider while developing this car.

I assume this won't have a limited slip, like the other recent Maccas?

A $200,000 sports car is going to be a very far cry from "car of the decade"; let's be real here.

It won't be hugely innovative or special. It's simply ~40% cheaper than a 650s.

Couldn't have said it better. Take a GT3 over it any day. Even though I have no idea what "it" will offer or be.

Very fascinating stuff coming from McLaren

More on their Black Swan Series: http://cars.mclaren.com/latest/blackswanmoments

McLaren should be able to show Maserati how it's properly done - non of this Ghibli nonsense.
