The Best Luxury Cars
November 12, 2013 : Porsche, the ultra luxury carmaker has now begun taking bookings for the 2014 Panamera Turbo S. It is claimed to be the most luxurious, fastest and most powerful Panamera in its lineup. It develops 50bhp more power than the Turbo model, thanks to the two new turbochargers with larger compressors. Under the hood, the Panamera Turbo S gets a 4.8 litre V8 twin turbo engine that churns out a maximum power output of 562bhp and 800Nm of peak torque. It takes just 3.8 seconds to reach 100kmph from standstill, and has a top speed of 310kmph. The sports car has three driving modes Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. The exact pricing details for the Turbo S is yet to be disclosed, but we expect it to be priced a bit higher than the Panamera Turbo.
