There is also a Sport Plus mode, which is included in the Sport Chrono Turbo Package that is part of the Panamera Turbo Powerkit, in which the maximum torque rises to 800 Nm. In Sport Plus mode, the Panamera Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, while the top test track speed is 305 km/h (189 mph).
