Torque is also up to 479lb-ft (650Nm), up 74lb-ft (100Nm).  The upgraded engine reduces the acceleration to 100km/h to 6.0 seconds, a reduction of 0.8 seconds.

Other upgrades for the Panamera Diesel include a torque vectoring rear differential, and it gets smaller upgrades to the transmission and chassis. The gearing for the first four gears is shorter, and the anti-roll bars are more rigid for better handling.
