McLaren GT becomes GTS for 2024 boasting greater power and styling updates
The ‘S’ brings more power and less weight to Mclaren’s GT model
In a notable update to its model lineup, McLaren has launched the 2024 McLaren GTS, an evolution of its comfort-oriented GT model. The newly named GTS retains the core elements of its predecessor while introducing a series of subtle enhancements.
Under the hood, the GTS continues to feature a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, now fine-tuned to deliver an extra 15bhp, bringing its total output to 626bhp.
As a result the car can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 3.2 seconds, and reach a top speed of 203mph.
Despite these performance upgrades, the car's two-seater, mid-engined layout remains unchanged. The powertrain is supported by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and McLaren’s innovative Brake Steer system.
Structurally, the GTS is built around a central carbon-fibre tub-style chassis, with aluminium subframes accommodating the front suspension and the engine-transmission assembly at the rear. This approach contributes to a notable reduction in weight, with the GTS weighing in at 1,520kg, 10kg lighter than its predecessor.
The exterior of the GTS sees modest updates, including a tweaked front bumper and new alloy wheels. Inside, the focus remains on high-quality materials and clean design, with options for customisation including an electrochromic glass roof.
The car also offers practicality with a total cargo space of 570 litres, thanks to its front and rear boots and additional storage behind the seats.
The new GTS is available to order now ahead of deliveries in early 2024.
