 MG Cyber GTS Concept Is A Cyberster Coupe That Could Enter Production

  • MG revealed the fully electric Cyber GTS Concept at Goodwood.
  • The closed-roof version MG Cyberster is a homage to the MGC GTS Sebring racecar.
  • MG hinted at the possibility of a production version in the future.

MG announced a surprising debut for the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed, with the Cyber GTS Concept. The rear-wheel-drive EV is a coupe version of the MG Cyberster roadster, that could lead to a production offering.

The MG Cyber GTS Concept shares most of its bodywork with the Cyberster, including the entire front end, the bumpers, and the lighting units. However, the retractable fabric top of the roadster has been replaced by a fixed roof, resulting in a sleeker roofline, a sexy greenhouse, and a redesigned rear deck.

More importantly, this is not just a design study, as it could enter production. According to MG, the Cyber GTS Concept “explores the further potential for MG creating a new future for a GTS model in the EV era”, following the footsteps of the Cyberster roadster that debuted in 2023.

MG didn’t share any technical information about the concept, other than confirming it uses a fully electric powertrain and has a rear-wheel-drive layout. Given the strong correlation with the MG Cyberster, we can assume that the two models could share the same specifications.

Note that the most potent RWD version of the roadster produces 335 hp (250 kW / 340 PS), while there is an AWD model with dual electric motors producing a healthier 536 hp (400 kW / 544 PS). In both cases, energy is sourced from a 77 kWh battery pack.

Overall, the electric coupe looks like a fitting rival to the upcoming Porsche 718 Cayman EV, whilst continuing the heritage of the classic MGB GT from the ’60s. In fact, the company says that the Cyber GTS was designed as a homage to the MGC GTS Sebring racecar. The latter finished 10th overall (3rd in the prototype category) at the 12-hours of Sebring in 1968, marking the best result from the factory MG team in this particular race.

Besides the MG Cyber GTS Concept, the SAIC-owned brand showed a prototype of the EXE181. The ultra-sleek concept is inspired by the 1959 MG EX181 land speed record car, featuring an impressive aerodynamic coefficient of 0.181cd and promising a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in 1.9 seconds.

Last but not least, MG showed the new generation of the HS SUV at Goodwood, which is closely-related to the Chinese Roewe RX5.
