The efficient 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine with four overhead camshafts benefits from a lightweight construction. A balance shaft reduces vibrations and ensures excellent smooth running. Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integrated dry-sump lubrication are fitted as standard. A coasting function and Auto Start Stop function are also provided.
The engine generates a power output of 310 hp at 6200 rpm and a maximum torque of 295 lb.-ft. at 3750 rpm. The result is a top track speed of 160 mph and acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds in the new Panamera and a 159 mph top track speed and 5.8 seconds from 0 to 60 mph in the new Panamera 4.
