Porsche Panamera Turbo customers can give their cars a 40bhp power boost with the addition of a new Powerkit to the options list.
Powerkit-equipped Panamera Turbos get two new turbochargers with titanium-alloy turbine wheels, while changes have also been made to the engine management system to make the car more responsive.
The result is a total power output from its 4.8-litre V8 engine of 533bhp, up from 493bhp, while torque is also up from 516lb ft to 553lb ft. Torque can be further increased to 590lb ft in over-boost mode, if the Powerkit is specified alongside the Sport Chrono package.
The Powerkit also cuts the Panamera Turbo’s 0-62mph by 0.1sec to 3.9sec, while its top speed is now 2mph faster than before at 190mph. Fuel consumption is not effected.
The Powerkit will be available as a £11,118 option from next month, while it will be available as a retro-fit option from November.
