The Panamera Turbo S model will make its world debut at the Tokyo Motor Show which takes place from 22 November to 1 December, writes Trish Whelan.

With a power output of 570hp, the all-wheel-drive four door, four seat Porsche Panamera Turbo S epitomises the Gran Turismo concept.

It features an advanced adaptive chassis technology and exclusive styling details.

The metallic exterior paint colour, Palladium, is available solely for the new model.

It sees a 50hp increase in power compared to the Panamera Turbo engine. The twin-turbocharged V8 engine combines 0-60mph (0-100km/h) in just 3.8 seconds.
