Porsche Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition looks gorgeous, costs a lot!

Article by Christian A., on October 22, 2017

Porsche already has the Performance Package for their range-topping Macan Turbo, which is currently available in some countries. Soon, this model will be dethroned by something even fancier by the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur department at their Leipzig factory. This Porsche Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition has been fitted with all the hardware bits you can think of that the automaker can cram into the performance SUV.

Starting off with the exterior, the SUV sits on a set of 21-inch 911 Turbo Design wheels with glossy black lateral spokes for extra flair. The package comes standard with front and rear LED lights, as well as the accents on the front spoiler, side blades, and rear apron, all in Carmine Red. To match all this, the Macan Turbo lettering gets the same hue of red, contrasting the blacked out “Porsche” badge.

This special edition Porsche Macan can already be ordered in Germany starting at 116,091 euros, making it 4,000 euros more expensive than the base models, and 24,000 euros more expensive than the Macan Turbo with the Performance Package.

Interior Design

As you move into the Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition, you will be greeted by blacked out leather upholstery combined with Alcantara trim all over the cabin. To make it look different from other models, the special edition has Garnet Red bolsters on the front seats. The same shade of red has been used for contrast stitching, seat belts, and the “Turbo” lettering on the headrests.

To match all the red bits, this has also been applied onto the PDK gear selector, and the Sport Chrono stopwatch. To finish off all the physical upgrades, Porsche added some model-exclusive logos on the door sills and on the dashboard.

Being the range-topping trim, expect a number of standard equipment that come with it - from heated front and rear seats and steering wheel. It also gets high performance brakes, a sports exhaust system, a 15mm sports suspension, and a sports chassis as part of the hardware upgrade.

Powertrain

Naturally, we have to discuss what’s underneath the Macan Turbo’s hood, as it is the range topping trim. Under the SUV’s hood is a 3.6 liter biturbo V6 engine that can carry out 440 horsepower (324 kilowatts). That is 40 horsepower (30 kilowatts) more than the regular Turbo version.

At 1,500 rpm, the Macan kicks in with 442 pound feet (600 Newton metres) of torque. With that much torque, in only 4.4 seconds, the SUV can catapult itself to 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour). Moreover, in only 2.9 seconds, it can finish the 80-120 kph (50 to 75 mph) run, before it maxes out at 169 miles per hour (272 kilometers per hour).

Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur refines the most powerful Macan

With the Porsche Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition, Porsche is introducing a particularly elegant version of the top model in the Macan model line. The Edition model is based on the Macan Turbo with Performance Package, which features a 3.6-litre V6 turbo engine capable of producing 324 kW (440 hp). It is only available in selected countries. Exclusive exterior and interior design features underline the highly sporty character of the most powerful derivative in the model line. The sports car amongst SUVs is carefully finished by hand in the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur department at the Leipzig production site.

The standard Turbo exterior package is the foundation for the unique appearance of the Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition. This package includes features such as 21-inch 911 Turbo Design wheels with lateral spokes painted in Black (high-gloss), LED headlights and tinted LED rear lights. Additional design components created specifically for this Edition model underline the exclusive character of the vehicle. Elements on the front spoiler, rear apron and sideblades painted in Carmine Red are just one example of such exclusive details. The “Macan turbo” model designation is also painted in Carmine Red underneath the Black (high-gloss) “PORSCHE” logo on the rear end.

The elegant passenger compartment also features accents in black and red. The standard Exclusive Performance Edition interior package in Garnet Red combines a black leather interior with several Alcantara elements. The Garnet Red bolsters for the front seats have been designed exclusively for the Edition model. This colour is also used for other elements, including the contrasting stitching, the embroidered “turbo” lettering on the headrests, the seat belts, the ring of the Sport Chrono stopwatch and the vehicle key wallet. The aluminium PDK gear selector has also been intricately finished with leather in Garnet Red, and a “Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition” logo has been added to the customised door entry trim strips and the dashboard trim. The front seats, rear bench seat and steering wheel are all heated as standard.

The Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition is based on the most powerful derivative in the model line: the Macan Turbo with Performance Package. Its 3.6-litre V6 engine with twin turbocharging delivers 324 kW (440 hp). 30 kW (40 hp) more than the Macan Turbo. The Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds and achieves a top speed of 272 km/h. A maximum torque of 600 Nm is available to the driver across a broad speed range of between 1500 and 4500 rpm. An impressive amount of tractive force is also guaranteed: It takes just 2.9 seconds to accelerate from 80 km/h to 120 km/h. The standard equipment includes a high-performance brake system with grooved brake discs that are 390 millimetres in diameter, the controlled Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sports chassis, which is perfectly tuned to account for the fact that the body has been lowered by 15 millimetres, the Sport Chrono Package and the sports exhaust system.

The Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition is available to order now, with prices in Germany starting from EUR 116.091,25 including VAT and country-specific features.
