In order to move forward, it is necessary to learn from your past. McLaren is planning to make a giant leap into the future with their upcoming Sports Series. The significance of this new program has lead them to create a series of articles on their website, titled #BLACKSWANMOMENTS. Each of these articles highlights technological and social milestones of the past half century, each foreshadowing the new series.
Five have been released so far, and seven blank spaces remain leading up to the launch of the Sports Series. A teaser image of a camouflaged drifting prototype was released by McLaren on their Facebook page Dec. 18, and it has the world wondering what this new carbon fiber coupe will be packing.

BBC Autos reports that the car is known as the P13 internally, and features a more conventional cockpit for daily driving. A detuned V8 from the 650S should be in the neighborhood of 500 hp.
