In the Cayenne S Diesel beats the heart of a pure-bred athlete. The smooth-running 4.2-litre V8 turbo-diesel engine is both efficient and extremely powerful. Generating 281 kW (382 hp), it enables the car to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 252 km/h. Maximum torque is an impressive 850 Nm, while fuel consumption comes in at just 8.3 l/100 km in the combined test cycle.
The highest performing V8 turbo-diesel in its class, it is assisted by twin turbocharger units arranged in parallel – one for each bank of cylinders. Incoming air is passed through a shared filter and compressed by the turbine units. Its temperature is then reduced in the twin intercooler system before it is fed through to the engine.
