New McLaren GTS Features More Power, Less Weight And Extra Practicality

The latest McLaren is here and it’s simply called the GTS. Built to take over for the outgoing GT, this new supercar weighs less and makes more power. Here’s a deeper dive into the new “super-lightweight” GTS.

The McLaren GT was perhaps the most friendly and understated car in its family tree. The new GTS aims to capture a little more aggression and performance without losing its daily drivability. To that end, it features a slew of new tricks up its carbon fiber sleeves.

For starters, it gets a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that makes 626 horsepower (467 kW / 635 PS). That’s 14 hp (10 kW) more than the outgoing car. The GTS also weighs just 3,351 pounds (1519 kg) or about 22 lbs (9.97 kg) less than the GT. More power and less weight are sure to aid in producing an engaging driving experience. In fact, it accelerates to 124 mph (200 km/h) in just 8.9 seconds and to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.1 seconds, ever so slightly outperforming the GT. This everyday cruiser can reach 203 mph (327 km/h) too. It doesn’t stop there though.

The carbon fiber monocoque chassis leverages what McLaren calls Intelligent adaptive suspension to provide an optimal ride. It also gets an optional front axle lift system that’s more than twice as fast as the outgoing GT, taking just 4.0 seconds to fully raise or lower the nose. Buyers also have the opportunity to personalize the car with more options than before including Lava Grey paint and unique GTS Turbine forged alloy wheels.

“The new McLaren GTS offers an unmatched blend of McLaren driving dynamics and performance, with refinement and practicality. When you want a true supercar driving experience, the GTS delivers that; when you want to relax on a longer journey of with luggage for a weekend away, the GTS is an ideal companion. This is a car that is true to McLaren’s racing DNA but with multiple layers of ability.” said Michael Leiters, CEO, McLaren Automotive
