Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series unveiled

As its name suggests, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is destined to be a rare sight. Indeed, Porsche intends to build just 500 examples.

Modifications to the 3.8 litre, six-cylinder engine mean power has risen by 26 bhp (19 kW / 27 PS) to 598 bhp (446 kW / 607 PS) and peak torque is 750 Nm (553 lb/ft).

However, judging by most of the official performance figures, the Exclusive Series is no quicker than the standard 911 Turbo S. For instance, the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint still takes 2.9 seconds and top speed remains at 205 mph (330 km/h). The 0-124 mph (200 km/h) time has been reduced from 9.9 to 9.6 seconds, though.

Will prospective customers be bothered by the lack of extra pace? Probably not, because the car's enhanced looks are going to be enough to lure many of them.

As well as a Turbo Aerokit, the specification includes unique black-painted 20” alloy wheels. Furthermore, the roof panel, bonnet, ram-air scoops and side skirts are all made from carbon fibre.

Inside, a subtle double-stripe motif appears on the Alcantara headlining and dual-layer perforated leather upholstery. A numbered dashboard plaque and carbon fibre door-sill plates with illuminated 'Exclusive Series' logos provide the finishing touches.

Available in coupĂ© guise only, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series costs £186,916 in the UK. Compared to a regular 911 Turbo S, that amount represents a sizeable premium of £39,376.

Pricing in Germany meanwhile starts at €259,992.
