New MG Cyber GTS Concept could become a hardtop MG Cyberster coupe

MG has unveiled its latest concept car at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed

As part of its centenary celebrations at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, MG has unveiled its new Cyber GTS Concept. Unlike many of the new arrivals at Goodwood, though, this one looks rather familiar as it’s essentially a coupe version of the existing MG Cyberster.

The chances of the Cyber GTS Concept making production seem good, too, as the brand has already built a working prototype that will be making its way up the famous Goodwood hill climb, passing this year’s MG-themed central sculpture.

The functional prototype is painted in a fitting British Racing Green, and fitted with 19-inch alloy wheels. The static car, meanwhile, wears larger 20-inch alloys. 

Official technical details are yet to be revealed, but if the Cyber GTS Concept does go on sale, it’s a safe assumption that it’ll share the same powertrains as the MG Cyberster. This would mean a 77kWh battery paired with a single rear-mounted 335bhp motor or a dual-motor setup producing 496bhp (or perhaps the choice of either). The Cyberster’s maximum claimed range from this battery pack is 316 miles on the WLTP combined cycle.

While the Cyberster follows the traditional two-seater roadster format, the Cyber GTS is a four-seater coupe. With more passenger space inside and a solid metal roof, this could open up MG’s electric sports car to a whole new wave of buyers. Traditional coupes also tend to be more structurally rigid and lighter than their drop-top counterparts, so this could prove advantageous in several areas including aerodynamics, efficiency and handling.

MG will be listening to the public’s opinions on the Cyber GT concept during the Goodwood Festival of Speed and, if it ticks the right boxes, it could hit showrooms as soon as 2025. This would be a fitting arrival, too, as 2025 marks the MGB GT’s 60th anniversary.
