It comes equipped with a standard eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission, which can reach 100 kmph from standstill in just 5.5 seconds. This is 0.4 seconds faster than its predecessor.
Coming to the cream of the crop, we have the Cayenne Turbo powered by a 4.8-litre bi-turbo V8 engine that churns pout 520bhp. Thus, it can accelerate from a zero to 100 kmph in a mere 4.5 seconds, while it has a top speed of 279 kmph.
