McLaren’s GT was recently struck off the production run roll, but the replacement is here and it’s every bit as good as you’d expect and is a great evolution of the model. “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.” comments Michael Leiters, CEO of McLaren Automotive. The exterior lines of the GT remain, but there are new visual enhancements. Up front, the hammerhead signature styling has been updated and there’s a new lower front bumper section with more pronounced, newly sculpted air intakes and the front intake air blades can be optioned in gloss carbon fibre. On the rear fenders are new, taller air scoops that are also available in gloss carbon fibre. The GTS also features a large rear diffuser and dual exhausts. As standard, the GTS wears a gloss black finish on the exhaust finisher, mirror caps and window surrounds. The new GTS badging, including new side badges, can be tinted with a black finish if buyers take the Stealth Badge Pack option. Visual carbon fibre options include an underbody carbon pack that covers the front splitter, side skirts and rear bumper lower and diffuser. The GTS has a carbon fibre MonoCell II-T monocoque chassis and the composite roof is made from recycled carbon fibre. With all the lightweight materials, the McLaren GTS sheds 10 kg of weight over the GT and now tops the scales at 1,520 kg.
