KGP Photography caught the first glimpse of McLaren's P13 Sports Series testing on public roads.
The Sport Series is McLaren's answer to the Porsche 911 Turbo, and thus will be priced below the 650S and P1. The car will use a detuned version of McLaren's 3.8L V8 engine, producing something in the 500hp range. The prototype shows similarities to McLaren's 650S, but with a longer and more spacious cabin, which is expected to yield more luggage space—making the P13 Sports Series more of a daily driver to compete with the 911 Turbo. Substantial changes can also be see on the rear, while McLaren's design language is clear throughout the design.
The Sports Series is expected to launch in the second quarter of 2015.
