McLaren: two new models in the pipeline

McLaren MP4-12CAccording to many sources, McLaren is working on two new models for 2013-2014, respectively, in order to compete with the Lamborghini Aventador and Porsche 911.

Currently, McLaren has only one car in its catalog: the MP4-12C, code named P11, also with the GT3 version. This is the first model to be produced from F1 in 1992. For a manufacturer, it is very low. Furthermore, obviously, it wants the situation to change.

Cabriolet versions of the supercar and sports are indeed in the pipeline for the coming months. However, according to several, sources relayed by our colleagues at MotorTrend. McLaren will also consider expanding its range with two new models.

The first (code name P12) would result in F1. To be placed below the MP4-12C which incorporated the structure, the machine is supposed to be a competitor to the Lamborghini Aventador with power increased to about 800 horses, against 600 for the current 3.8 liter V8 biturbo. The second (code name P13) would be a less exclusive sporting responsible for encroaching on the border of the Porsche 911.

If the two models will resume the basis of the MP4-12C, they should ultimately be radically different. It remains to be seen whether these projects will materialize. There is talk of an exit from P12 to P13 2013 and 2014. However, nothing has been confirmed by McLaren. However, the arrival of a billionaire in Singapore (Lim Peter) in the group, as well as recent investments in the manufacturing plant, suggest that the builder works well on large projects.
