The Panamera GTS is driven by a 4.8-litre 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 7,100 rpm. The result is a compelling 324 kW (440 hp) and 520 Nm.
Features specific to the new Panamera GTS include intake camshafts with great valve lift and a new air induction system with two additional air filter modules in the front end. At 3,500 rpm, the flaps on the air filter modules are opened to allow the engine to breathe more easily. At high driving speeds, headwind ram pressure 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 (p. 58). 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 100 km/h lasts a mere 4.4 seconds. The top speed is 288 km/h. The figures speak for themselves – and for pure sports performance.
