Five supercars less powerful than the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo

05.03.2018

The latest Panamera is a great piece of engineering, for a car so large and luxurious to accelerate, stop and handle the way that it does is deeply impressive. The Sport Turismo version of the Panamera adds more practicality to the formula while the latest Turbo S E-Hybrid version aims to combine fuel economy with performance. Powering this latest Panamera is a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 with 404kW along with a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion-powered electric motor which brings the total system output for this four-wheel drive model to 500kW/850Nm. That means that 100km/h comes up in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 310 km/h. That's supercar figures from an executive saloon, in fact, here are five new supercars that have less power than the Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo.

 Ferrari 488 GTB- the Ferrari is lighter and certainly a faster car than that Panamera, with a 0-100km/h time of 3.0-seconds and a top speed of over 330km/h, but the big German still has it beaten in the power department, with the Italian producing 492kW/760Nm.

 

Lamborghini Huracan LP640-4 Performante coupe- Another Italian, but this time a more track-focused machine. It has a massive 5.2-litre V10 on board that produces 470kW/600Nm. But again, like the Ferrari, its lighter kerb weight sees it out-perform the big Porsche, with 100km/h coming up in 2.9-seconds and its top speed is in excess of 325km/h.

McLaren 570S- This might be the ‘baby' McLaren, but it's still an incredibly fast car, with its turbocharged V8 motor producing 419kW/600Nm for a 100km/h sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 328km/h.

 

Mercedes-AMG GT R coupe- The car known as the ‘Beast Of The Green Hell' was developed at the famous Nürburgring race track in Germany where it also held a few lap records within its production car category. The 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 under the bonnet produces 430kW/700Nm, less than the Panamera, but still enough to get it to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 318km/h.

 

Nissan GT-R- The latest and what is likely the last iteration of the R35 GT-R took on a more usable, comfort-oriented persona. That doesn't mean that the GT-R is now a slouch, some ten years after the first R35 made its debut, the 2018 version produces 408kW/632Nm from its turbocharged V6. A violent launch control system allows it to get to 100km/h in less than 3.0-seconds while its top speed is 315km/h.
