This is the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, just unveiled at the Beijing motor show. With a headline-making 542bhp to call upon, it’s capable of cracking 62mph in under five seconds and going on to a maximum 174mph – incredible figures for any two-and-a-half tonne SUV.
The last Cayenne Turbo S had a piffling 514bhp; this one trumps even a 911 GT2 for power, and gets 37 extra pounds feet of torque than the current Cayenne Turbo too, with 553lb ft of the stuff between 2250- and 4500rpm. Porsche has turned to a modified exhaust system and ECU to produce that extra shove.
Officially, the car hits 62mph in just 4.8sec. Weissach has yet to announce a 0-100mph figure, but expect it to be in the region of 12.0sec.
