Porsche Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 on sale from £64,573
25 March 2009

This is the Porsche Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition 3 special edition.

Only 1000 examples of the Design Edition 3 will be built, with exterior features including grey metallic paint, a sports exhaust, stripes along the side of the car and on the bonnet, and 21-inch alloy wheels. The car also has bi-xenon headlights, rear privacy glass and an extended roof spoiler.

The interior features black leather upholstery, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, and electrically adjustable sports seats. A Bose surround sound system with 14 loudspeakers and an overall output of 410 watts is also fitted as standard.

The radical looks aren't quite matched by this limited-edition's mechanicals, for the Cayenne is powered by a 'regular' GTS's 405bhp 4.8-litre V8, mated to a six-speed Tiptronic S transmission. The car accelerates from 0-62mph in 6.5sec and has a top speed of 156mph.

Prices start from £64,753 and the Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition is available to order from May. A regular Porsche Cayenne GTS costs from £54,540.

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.

    Super saloon deploys four-wheel drive to improve every facet of its driving experience. Faster and more capable than any, and more exciting than most, of its celebrated predecessors

    More power and an intoxicating soundtrack have breathed new life into our love affair with the biggest, baddest Range Rover Sport variant

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
