2017 Panamera Turbo

The Panamera Turbo is now the most powerful model in the range. Its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 develops 550 hp at 5,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 567 lb-ft between 1,960 and 4,500 rpm. It has 30 hp more than the previous model, and its maximum torque has been increased by 51 lb-ft. The eight-cylinder engine is capable of propelling the Panamera Turbo from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds; with the Sport Chrono Package, this time is reduced to just 3.4 seconds. The Panamera Turbo can reach a top track speed of 190 mph, and has a weight of 4398 pounds according to DIN measurement. These are impressive figures that illustrate just how easily the engine can propel the Panamera with its power-to-weight ratio of just 8 lbs/hp.
