Maybe it was because they were chuffed that for the first time they are in profit, but McLaren just went ahead and confirmed the rumors of a track-only version of the P1 as part of their 2013 financial report. They’ve also set a date for the launch of the P13 sports car.
McLaren P1 Track, according to the manufacturer, will only be available clients who have ordered one of the 375 road legal versions. It is going to be the most powerful, rarest, and possibly the most expensive car ever McLaren has ever built. Technical details are yet to be revealed.
As for the entry-level McLaren P13, it will be launched before the end of 2015, offering a more accessible McLaren that classifies in the sports car segment and rivals cars like the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 Turbo. And yes, P13 is a codename. The real name of the car is yet to be revealed, but don’t expect anything fancy.
Last year for the first time ever since the establishment of the new company in 2010 McLaren Automotive turned profit. They delivered 1,359 12Cs and 36 examples of the McLaren P1™ during the year, which represents an increase in revenues from £18.8m to £285.4m, resulting in operating profit of £12.4m and £4.5m profit before tax.
