New 2015 Cayenne Turbo S makes exclusive debut at Porsche Centre Dubai
The new Cayenne Turbo S has arrived and is now on display at Porsche Centre Dubai, Al Nabooda Automobiles LLC. The top model of the sporty SUV series features a re-engineered 4.8-liter V8 biturbo engine which delivers 570 hp and 800 Nm of torque. Introduced earlier this year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, its debut in Dubai is sure to impress Porsche lovers and those who appreciate the very best in German engineering.
Commenting on the new arrival, Vijay Rao, General Manager of Porsche Centre Dubai, said: “We have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Cayenne Turbo S since we launched the latest generation of the model last year at our new showroom.”
“As the top performer of the range, the new Turbo S boasts segment-leading performance credentials. It’s a sporty SUV like no other and has always been a popular choice for our customers in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.”
Accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, the new Cayenne Turbo S is 0.4 seconds faster than its predecessor. Its top speed is now 284 km/h, with a responsive biturbo engine which is a result of the turbochargers now being housed directly in the exhaust manifolds.
The high-performance engine also offers 20 hp more and 50 Nm more torque than the previous engine. All the performance improvements result in the Cayenne Turbo S completing a lap of the North Loop of the Nürburgring in 7:59.74 minutes, setting a new record for SUVs.
Underscoring its position as the top athlete in the range, the Cayenne Turbo S features standard Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes (PCCB) which include 420 mm front brake discs and for the first time, ten-piston calipers. The rear brakes have 370 mm discs and four-piston calipers. The active roll stabilization system and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) proactively reduces side tilt early on when driving through curves. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) increases dynamic handling and stability by making specific brake interventions at the right or left rear wheel – this noticeably improves steering into curves and steering precision.
The active hang-on all-wheel drive system Porsche Traction Management (PTM) permanently drives the rear wheels, while offering fully variable power distribution to the front wheels. All these systems combined result in excellent driving dynamics, ample traction, as well as high level of agility at any speed.
Standard features of the Cayenne Turbo S reflect the top level status of this model. They include 21-inch wheels in distinctive 911 Turbo design with black painted edges, LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus), full-leather interior with Porsche logo embossed on all head restraints as well as interior carbon accents. Interior styling in a black/crème color combination makes its debut in the Cayenne Turbo S.
Exterior visual accents include air inlet surrounds painted in high-gloss black, the undersides of the door mirrors in the same color and the roof spoiler and wheel arch moldings in car color. A sport exhaust system is available as an option in combination with a sound symposer, which optimally transmits the V8 sound experience into the interior.
The new Cayenne Turbo S is now available at Porsche Center Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road, with prices starting from AED 692,800.
