Yes, power is important. Just as important as efficiency. That’s why the new Panamera S and the new Panamera 4S now come equipped with a newly developed 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine. Thanks to some clever downsizing, the result is more power output than that of the naturally aspirated engine in the predecessor model, yet with significantly lower fuel consumption.
The lightweight construction of the new engine also contributes to its high efficiency. Technologies such as direct fuel injection (DFI), four overhead camshafts and VarioCam Plus join forces with two turbochargers to deliver a high degree of efficiency and optimum torque in every engine speed range.
The result is 309 KW (420 hk) with 6000 1/min, and 520 Nm between 1750 and 5000 1/min. The Panamera S completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/t in 5.1 seconds and manages a top speed of 287 km/t. The Panamera 4S reaches 100 km/t from a standing start in 4.8 seconds and achieves a maximum speed of 286 km/t. And that’s with up to 18 % less fuel consumption than that of the respective predecessor model.
