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.
