Porsche Centre Abu Dhabi, Ali & Sons, announces the arrival of the new Panamera Turbo S. With its strong 4.8 litre, V8 biturbo charged engine which delivers 550 hp and a maximum torque of 800 Nm, this exclusive model represents the most powerful Gran Turismo made by Porsche. Porsche enthusiasts can view the Panamera Turbo S at Porsche Centre Abu Dhabi from today.
The new model is a unique combination of performance and efficiency, driving dynamics and comfort. The uncompromising power results in an astonishing acceleration time of only 3.8 seconds from 0 to 100 km. However, it is the sprint to 200 km/h in 12.9 seconds that shows the real performance of the Panamera Turbo S; the time needed for this is only 1 second behind the acceleration time of the renowned Carrera GT.
Representing the flagship in the luxury Panamera line-up the new model reaches a top speed of 306 km/h. Despite the increased performance, fuel consumption remains at the same level as that of a Panamera Turbo – another example of “Porsche Intelligent Performance”. In the NEDC the Gran Turismo covers 100 kilometres on 11.3 litres of fuel per 100 km, when fitted with the 19 inch, all-season tyres with optimised rolling resistance developed for the Panamera by Michelin.
Porsche’s new top-of-the-range Panamera boasts an extraordinarily comprehensive equipment level. Vehicles are delivered to customers with Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) as well as a steering system using the speed-dependent Servotronic as standard. In addition, every Panamera Turbo S features the Sport Chrono Package Turbo, which tunes the suspension and power unit when pressing the additional “Sport Plus” button. The engine sounds becomes even more emotional with the sports exhaust system included in the basic configuration.
As it is custom for a for a top luxury class model, the interior and exterior reflect pure elegance – typical for every Porsche this includes visual effects for a sporty appearance. The model comes standard with 20-inch 911 Turbo II wheels with increased rear axle track width and side skirts from the Porsche Exclusive range. Whilst typically rear spoilers for the Panamera range are only available in black, the adaptive extending four-way rear spoiler for the Turbo S model matches the exterior colour of the car. In the interior a unique bi-colour leather finish with two new combinations in black/cream and agate grey/cream complete the fusion of exclusivity and sportiness.
