The Panamera Turbo is powered by a 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and charge-air cooling. 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: 382 kW (520 hp) at 6,000 rpm. The maximum torque of 700 Nm is achieved between 2,250 and 4,500 rpm. Top speed is reached at 305 km/h. The Panamera Turbo completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds.
With the Launch Control function of the optional Sport Chrono Package, the clock stops even sooner at 3.9 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.
