E-Hybrid Cayenne Turbo S helped cyclist set new world speed recordAugust 27, 2019
It accelerated to 280 km / h thanks to the Payche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, equipped with a new engine. The record was set at the Alvington airfield in Yorkshire, UK. A year earlier, Campell broke the European speed record by gaining 240 km / h, also following the Porsche Cayenne. The German SUV was equipped with a tailor-made streamlined tail extension developed by undergraduate students at Harper Adams University.
Neil Campell accelerated on his specialized bike, being towed by a Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid to a speed of 242 km / h. Then he freed himself from the tug and began to pedal independently through the synchronizing beams. Campell kept within the aerodynamic trail, following the car, and was able to reach a speed of 280 km / h, setting a new world record. The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo S hybrid is equipped with the same transmission as the Panamera, a twin-cylinder 4.0-liter V8 engine paired with an electric motor. The total drive power is 670 hp, and the torque is 663 Nm. The car is capable of a top speed of 295 km / h.
