The exterior of the 2024 McLaren GTS is a testament to McLaren’s commitment to cutting-edge design and aerodynamic excellence. The sleek and sculpted bodylines are not just visually stunning; they serve a purpose. The refreshed front bumper features wider and more pronounced air intakes, directing airflow to the heart of the beast—the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8. At the rear, the GTS showcases taller functional air scoops, a large rear diffuser, and restyled dual exhausts. The attention to detail is evident, down to the gloss black finishes on the exhaust, mirror caps, and windows surround, creating a visual contrast that accentuates the GTS’s aggressive persona.
Optional exterior enhancements, like the Turbine 10-spoke forged alloy wheels in five distinct finishes, provide a level of customization that caters to individual preferences.
Inside the 2024 McLaren GTS dihedral doors, craftsmanship and comfort take center stage. Features standard to the GTS include Softgrain Aniline leather seats with a double-piping pattern and contrast stitching, Nappa leather upholstery with cashmere and microfiber options, polished aluminum for switches and controls, a 10.25-inch instrument cluster acting as a digital command center that provides real-time information on performance metrics, a seven-inch infotainment screen, SiriusXM satellite radio and navigation, and ambient lighting in six selectable colors. Optional features include a 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins and an electrochromic glazed panoramic roof that allows natural light to flood the cabin, creating a sense of openness and freedom.
The 2024 McLaren GTS offers a generous cargo capacity with 15 cubic feet of stowage in the rear luggage bay and an additional 5 cubic feet in the front trunk, bringing the total cargo capacity to 20 cubic feet.
Beneath the striking exterior and luxurious interior lies the heart of the 2024 McLaren GTS—the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine. This powerhouse has undergone meticulous tuning, resulting in an impressive 626 hp output and 465 lb-ft of torque. Through increased crankshaft torque, more aggressive combustion phasing, and revised ignition timing, the GTS accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in a blistering 3.2 seconds and achieves 124 mph in just 8.9 seconds.
The seven-speed SSG transmission, complemented by the standard launch-control function, ensures seamless power delivery to the rear wheels. The power-to-weight ratio of 414 hp per ton propels the GTS into a league of its own, making it not only the lightest in its class but also a true exemplar of high-performance engineering.
