The new Panamera GTS is driven by a 4.8-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine of lightweight construction with integrated dry-sump lubrication. As a naturally aspirated unit, it inherently delivers a remarkably direct response. The maximum engine speed is 7100 rpm. The result is a compelling 440 hp and 384 lb.-ft.
Features specific to the new Panamera GTS include intake camshafts with extended valve lift and a new air induction system with two additional air filter modules in the front end. Above 3500 rpm, the flaps on the air filter modules are opened to allow the engine to breathe more easily. At high driving speeds, increased air flow is exploited for an extra boost.
The modified engine management has also been fully adapted to the Panamera GTS with the focus on maximum performance. For a more direct response characteristic and even faster gear changing of the PDK. You’ll certainly feel it every time you open the throttle. The Sport Chrono Package is integrated as standard. In SPORT PLUS mode, the race from 0 to 60 mph lasts a mere 4.2 seconds. The achievable top track speed is 179 mph. The figures reveal performance in pure form.
