After a rather uneventful week of new car reveals, Porsche sparks things up a little with the reveal of their new Cayenne Turbo S.
As the range-topping Cayenne model, it comes equipped with a twin-turbo 4.8-litre V8 engine producing 550hp and 750 Nm (553 lb ft) of torque – the same engine found in the previous Cayenne Turbo S and current Panamera Turbo S. That figure represents a 50hp increase in power from the standard Cayenne Turbo, meaning the Cayenne Turbo S can sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 283km/h (176mph).
The Cayenne Turbo S also carries over the eight-speed automatic transmission as other Cayennes, which helps it get a claimed average fuel consumption figure of 11.5l/100km. It also comes standard with: air suspension with active PASM damping control; Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC); Sport Chrono package, and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) which works in conjunction with an electronic rear differential locking system.
Unique exterior features include air inlet screens, headlamp housings and part of the side mirrors painted in high-gloss black. It also rides standard on 21-inch wheels with coloured Porsche crests. The interior adopts a colour-contrasting theme, with a carbon package to go with as well.
The Cayenne Turbo S will start being delivered in January 2013, with prices starting at 151,702 euros in Germany.
