The Cayenne received it’s facelift in 2007, this brought an exterior update, particularly to the front and limited interior changes. All of the models also had an increase to their power, with the Turbo S now producing 550hp. This coupled with direct-fuel injection system and VarioCam it was also more fuel efficient. Up to this point, this was the most powerful Cayenne produced, with a 4.8litre V8, as found in the other Cayenne’s, but tweaked for maximum power. The stats are very impressive, with 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds and top speed of 174mph, which is very fast for a large SUV even compared to modern standards.
