McLaren GTS has more luggage space than many a family car

December 20, 2023

570 liters!

In total, the McLaren GTS has a storage capacity of 570 liters, including 150 liters in the front and a whopping 420 liters in the rear. That number often does not even reach “ordinary” family cars. So the GTS is nice and practical and perfect for daily driving. Especially do so, because then you will enjoy a 4.0-liter twinturbo V8 engine with an output of 635 horsepower every day, an increase of 15 horsepower over the McLaren GT. The 0-100 sprint takes 3.2 seconds and sprinting from 0 to 200 km/h takes only 8.9 seconds. The top speed is 326 mph. Shifting is done with a seven-speed SSG automatic transmission.

Adaptations McLaren GTS

The McLaren GTS weighs 1,520 kilograms, 10 kilograms lighter than the GT. The roof panel is made of recycled carbon fiber. The McLaren GTS also features adaptive suspension, carbon ceramic brake discs, improved steering and subtle design refinements, with several components finished in high-gloss black. The GTS can be ordered in a new paint color called Lava Grey. Furthermore, McLaren provides new GTS “Turbine” wheels. Another practical improvement: the nose-lift system is twice as fast as the system in the GT.

Start of delivery

Delivery will begin in 2024. The McLaren GTS comes standard with a three-year manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage. The GTS is eligible for the McLaren Extended Warranty, which can be purchased in periods of 12 or 24 months, up to a total warranty of 12 years. The McLaren Service Plan includes three years of vehicle maintenance.
