Luxury at your disposal!
The ultra-powerful 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 in our tester, which makes 541 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque, fires up with a hearty bellow. And it can’t wait to tear up the road: With a 0-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds, the Cayenne Coupe Turbo moves with the alacrity of a thoroughbred sports car. The top speed is 177 mph (ca. 285 km/h). The eight-speed torque-converter style automatic shifts almost as quickly as a dual-clutch box, but it is better suited for towing—and it provides the torque overload at initial takeoff that many SUV buyers love. We advise you to watch your speed closely in heavily police-patrolled areas: You enter the triple-digit territory without effort—and sometimes inadvertently.
