The world's most exclusive Porsche Panamera
Limited to just 100 units, the Porsche Panamera Exclusive Series is the private member's club we all want to join.Damien Reid June 21, 2015
You’d think that simply owning a Porsche would be exclusive enough in your neighbourhood, but when you live in a place like the Middle East, standard doesn’t cut it, not even for Stuttgart’s finest sports cars.
So Porsche has released a limited edition of just 100 versions of its Panamera it calls the Exclusive Series and the good news is that some of them have been earmarked for our shores.
The Panamera Exclusive marks the first time Porsche has used a two-tone paint job from the factory with a jet black paint combining with a brown metallic below the hipline that tapers out towards the rear - and each car is painted by hand.
Based on the 570bhp, Turbo S model, the Exclusive carries the jet black theme through to the 20-inch alloys, and if the custom paintjob won’t alert the neighbours that this is not your average Porker, then the handmade badge located behind the front air intakes surely will.
With just 100 units available globally, demand in the Middle East is, as expected, high, as it also uses Poltrona Frau chestnut brown leather for the seats and lower door panels with black nappa leather for the upper inserts.
Inspired by the two-tone exterior paintjob, the interior also features a blend of colours with a transition of dark walnut wood into a deep black piano lacquer surface from the front to the rear.

The rear entertainment system features what is claimed to be a first for in-car communications with in-built cameras fitted to the two, 10.1-inch touchscreen displays for the rear seat passengers allowing Skype calls to be made while on the run.
A made-to-measure luggage set with two trolleys, two weekend bags and a beauty case that’s also made from Poltrona Frau leather, is available as an option.
Expect prices to be around the AED 1 million mark.
