500HP McLaren Sports Series Snow Drifts in Teaser Video

New Model Set to Debut at the New York Auto Show

While it’s no secret McLaren is working on a model below the 650S and 675LT (and Asia-only 625C), the British automaker teased the new Sport Series model in a video at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show ahead of the new car’s reveal at the New York auto show next month.

In the video, a camouflaged McLaren Sports Series coupe can be seen drifting through the snow. While few details can be made out, the new model’s overall shape bares a resemblance to the 650S, 675LT, and P1 models. The new McLaren Sports Series model will fill the lowest rung of the automaker’s recently announced three-tier model strategy and compete against the likes of higher-end Porsche 911 models as well as the Mercedes-AMG GT and next Nissan GT-R, among others.

The McLaren 650S, 675LT, and 625C sit in the automaker’s Super Series of cars, while the P1 and track-only P1 GTR fill out the Ultimate Series. Like the automaker’s existing models, the McLaren Sport Series model will feature a carbon fiber chassis and mid-engine 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 expected to be detuned to around 500 hp. Pricing is rumored to start around $180,000.
