577HP come from the AMG 5.5L V8 BiTurbo engine turning the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic Transmission. Yes, that means you get two turbos, which translates to: greater power, smaller engine, and added efficiency!

Porsche Taycan (Ty-Kahn) Turbo S

A base price of $185,000 USD, this dream machine will launch you from 0-60mph in a mind-bending 2.6 seconds. That’s a hypercar stat at a bargain price!
