I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I noticed a post with something special in it, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. I was not expecting any Turbo S Exclusive Series to come to South Africa due to its limited production numbers but I was taken by surprise once again.
The hand-built Turbo S Exclusive Series is limited to just 500 units and we can expect 150 Cabriolet versions worldwide. The car is finished of in a distinctive Golden Yellow and has various carbon components. These include the two carbon-weave strips which contour the roof and bonnet as well as the side skirts. The rear is equipped with a wing of the Turbo Aerokit, a new rear apron, a carbon ram-air scoop and an exhaust system which comprises of two twin tailpipes made from stainless steel in black.
The Exclusive Series comes with new black-painted 20-inch wheels which are finished in Golden Yellow Metallic. An option to take the “Lightweight braided carbon fibre wheel” will be available at a cost of 15,232 Euros / $17,934 and is made up entirely from Carbon Fibre which reduces each wheels weight down by 8.5kg from the standard wheels. Thus, there’s a 20% reduction and at the same time they are 20% stronger. The brake calipers comes finished in a black paint with the Porsche logo in Golden Yellow Metallic.
The interior has 18-way adjustable sports seats which are covered in two layers of perforated leather. The inside layer has two stripes finished in Golden Yellow, the seams and the Turbo S lettering stitched are also in contrasting Golden Yellow which gives it a distinctive effect. The roof lining is finished in Alcantara with a Golden Yellow double stripe. Porsche integrated fine copper thread into the trim strips of the carbon interior package. The limited-edition numbers are displayed on a plaque on the passenger side which boasts the rarity of this car. The door guards are finished with Exclusive Series lettering.
The 3.8-litre, six-cylinder biturbo flat engine is capable of pushing out 607 hp (446 kW) which is 27 bhp more than the standard version and has a 750 Nm torque, delivering between 2,250 and 4,000 rpm. The car propels from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and 0 to 200 km/h in just 9.6 seconds and can hit a top speed of 330 km/h.
Porsche gives you the option to purchase a watch and/or an Exclusive Series luggage set which matches the car.
