Porsche Proves It’s Tough

SLOW Magazine - - Editor's Choice -

A Porsche Cayenne has suc­cess­fully towed an Air France Air­bus A380 weigh­ing 285 tonnes. The Cayenne, driven by Porsche GB tech­ni­cian, Richard Payne, towed the air­craft over a dis­tance of 42 m at the Air France H6 main­te­nance hangar at Paris Charles de Gaulle Air­port, im­prov­ing on the pre­vi­ous Guin­ness world Record of 115 tonnes. “we don’t usu­ally go this far to test the lim­its of our cars, but I think to­day we got pretty close. I could tell that it was work­ing hard, but the Cayenne didn’t com­plain and just got on with it. our cars are de­signed to be tough. But even so, what the Cayenne did to­day was re­mark­able,” Payne says. Read more about this in­cred­i­ble feat at www.porscheguild­ford.co.uk.
