Porsche has lifted the lid on the most powerful 911 Turbo S ever – the new Exclusive Series.
The built number of this latest model is limited to just 500, and it gains 27bhp over the regular Turbo S, taking its power output up to 599bhp. Torque from the 3.8-litre flat-six engine remains unchanged at 750Nm.
Despite the boost of power, the Exclusive Series boasts the same performance figures as the regular Turbo S, dispatching the sprint from 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 205mph.
What really makes this new limited-edition model stand out from the standard Turbo S, however, is a use of higher quality materials and added luxurious detail.
Exclusive Series cars will be finished by hand at Porsche's in-house personalisation department – the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.
The exterior can be specified in a new Golden Yellow Metallic paint finish, which is only available on this model.
This appears on the body, the design lines of the black 20-inch wheels, and on the badges that adorn the black brake callipers – adding some extra-fine detailing in comparison with other 911 models.
Many carbon-fibre components have also been fitted to the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series with the roof, bonnet and side skirts being constructed from the material.
Inside, the sports seats are upholstered in luxuriously thick perforated
leather, with the stitching and Turbo S lettering on the headrests contrasting the Golden Yellow exterior paintwork.
Some of the other standard features include carbon ceramic brakes, Porsche Active Suspension Management and the Sport Chrono package.
The new Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series costs from £186,916, which is £41,000 more than the regular Turbo S.
Although this new model costs a significant amount more, its limited-run prestige will give it huge residual values later on, as seen in the current used Porsche market.
Last year the Porsche 911 R was released with a price tag around the £137,000 mark and a limited run of 901 models.
Used examples are now fetching as much as £1,000,000.
