What's all this about?

Porsche has released a special, limited edition version of its Macan Turbo with the Performance Package. It's called the Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition.

What does the EPE feature?

It uses the same 440hp 3.6-litre V6 turbo engine as the hottest Macan, but the EPE adds extra exterior and interior design features. Chief among these is that the hand-finished build of the Macan at the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur department at Leipzig allows for 'colour to sample' paint finishes, at extra cost. This means you can match the car to almost anything, an example being the Macan Turbo EPE in the pictures painted in Voodoo Blue - an iconic colour from the Porsche back catalogue that has been adapted to modern painting techniques.

OK, nice colours is one thing. But what else will I get for my money?

Outside, there are 21-inch 911 Turbo Design wheels with lateral spokes painted in high-gloss black, LED front and rear (tinted) lights, Carmine Red elements on the front spoiler, rear apron and side blades, and on the bootlid the 'Macan Turbo' model designation is also Carmine Red, while the 'Porsche' lettering is high-gloss black. Within, much is made of the black and red highlights. The Exclusive Performance Edition package is Garnet Red, contrasting the black leather cabin that employs plenty of Alcantara. The PDK gear selector is aluminium and has a Garnet Red leather garnish, while a 'Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition' logo can be seen on the sill plates and the dashboard. Four of the seats and the steering wheel are all heated as standard.

Can you just outline the performance of the uprated Macan Turbo for me?

Yes, the 440hp/600Nm 3.6 V6 delivers its power to all corners through Porsche Traction Management four-wheel drive. That means 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds and a 169mph top speed, making this one of the fastest SUVs in the world. It's flexible too, running 49-74mph in a thunderous 2.9 seconds, while it can return up to 29.7mpg with just 219g/km CO2. High-performance brakes with 390mm grooved front brake discs are standard, as is Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with a 15mm lower stance. The Sport Chrono Package and a sports exhaust system are both also fitted.

Go on, then - how much is all this?

The Porsche Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition has limited availability and you can order it now, provided you have £86,267 spare. First deliveries should be in January 2018, with customers invited to explore the potential of their new car by participating in a bespoke driving experience around the tracks at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone.
