The new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid sets an unusual lap record at the Swedish Gotland Ring

POSTED: 14/09/2019

When an unlikely track meets an unlikely opponent, sometimes magic happens for the spectators. In this case, the new, most powerful Cayenne ever, took to the unusual Gotland Ring in Sweden, a part-gravel, part-asphalt track that mixes the challenges of speed-heavy adrenaline rushes through a 3.2km road section, while a 4.2km section challenges competitors to manage their agility on the gravel. The record was set while filming was on-going, with German racing driver and TV presenter Tim Schrick at the wheel, setting a hand-stopped time of 3:51.

Just like the Gotland Ring, the new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, brings the best of both worlds, combining the power of a four-litre V8 engine, with an electric motor integrated into the eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission. Offering a combined output of 680 PS, with immediate access to 900 Nm of torque from just above idle. You can experience starting acceleration of 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. This incredible performance is also matched with a fantastic efficiency, offering up to 40 kilometres of range with zero local emissions. Connecting the combustion and electric motor is a unique separating clutch inside the hybrid module, referred to as the Electric Clutch Actuator (ECA).
