Porsche has launched a special edition 911 Turbo S in the UK which celebrates
40 years of the 911 Turbo model. It has been designed and manufactured by
Porsche Exclusive, a department of the factory dedicated to providing customers
with special vehicles which fulfill their special wishes.
Over four decades, the reputation of the Porsche 911 Turbo as a technology showcase combining the virtues of a circuit race car with those of an everyday road car has consistently reached new heights. Since it first went on sale in 1974, the Porsche 911 Turbo has become revered by car enthusiasts and is renowned as a benchmark high performance sports coupé.
In 1986, Porsche became the world's first car manufacturer to establish a specialist department at the factory dedicated to tailoring cars to bespoke requirements. Porsche Exclusive provides customers with a unique vehicle that meets all of their special wishes - in terms of both styling and performance. But besides offering custom manufacturing, Porsche Exclusive also builds extraordinary limited series cars.
As the name suggests the new 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition is unique to the UK market and will be offered in a limited edition of 40, priced from 150,237 GBP. Available to order now, each car will be delivered together with a personal photo book documenting the production process, a bespoke Exclusive GB Edition indoor car cover and unique design sketches.
An all-wheel drive chassis with active rear axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, full-LED headlights and a 560 hp flat six-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine emphatically underline the sporting character of the 911 Turbo S, on which the Exclusive GB Edition is based.
The Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active anti-roll system further increases the handling capability. Aided by the Sport Chrono Package Plus incorporating dynamic engine mounts, and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), the 911 Turbo S can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and on to a top speed of 197 mph. The benchmark lap time around the Nurburgring-Nordschleife is 7 min 27 secs.
To this, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition adds unique features carefully chosen to build on the compelling dynamic attributes and iconic silhouette of the standard coupé. Taking their cue from subtle styling motifs of the original 911 Turbo '930' from 1974, the limited edition stands out clearly as the ultimate - and most Exclusive - 'Type 991' 911.
In profile, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition shows a clear link to the first 911 Turbo - the black rear upper spoiler, Sport Classic wheels in black, black finished exterior door handles, and the black 'Porsche' script along the sills pay homage to its illustrious forebear. Inside, the black leather upholstery features Guards Red contrasting stitching and unique highlights include an embossed Union flag on the center storage compartment lid.
The 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition will be available in three exterior colors: GT Silver metallic, White, and Guards Red.
