The new Panamera Turbo is powered by a 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and intercooler. It features two turbochargers arranged in parallel – one for each cylinder bank. Intake air is compressed and then fed to the engine by the respective charge-air cooler for each cylinder strand.
Performance figures: 520 hp at 6000 rpm. The maximum torque of 516 lb.-ft. is achieved between 2250 and 4500 rpm. Top track speed is reached at 189 mph. The new Panamera Turbo completes the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
With the Launch Control function of the optional Sport Chrono Package, the clock stops even sooner at 3.7 seconds. An overboost function temporarily increases the boost pressure produced at full throttle by up to 10 %. Proof that supremacy is synonymous with sheer fun.
