The new modification of the Porsche Cayenne – Turbo S E-Hybrid, which became the most powerful version of the model in its history, set an unusual record. The car drove a circle along the unfinished Gotland Ring highway on the Swedish island of Gotland in 3 minutes and 51 seconds.

The crossover was driven by German race car driver and TV presenter Tim Schrik. He drove the first 3.2 km along the paved surface, and then another km along gravel. At the same time, standard road tires that were already in use were installed on the car.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is equipped with a hybrid powerplant, which is equipped with the top-end version of the Panamera. It includes a 550-horsepower four-liter V8 engine with two turbines and an electric motor with a capacity of 136 horsepower.

In total, the units give out 680 hp and 900 Nm of torque. The crossover is able to accelerate from zero to the first 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and its maximum speed is forcibly limited by electronics at around 295 km per hour.
