There are perks to being Porsche’s brand ambassador. Just ask tennis star Maria Sharapova. She recently showed off a new Porsche Panamera GTS that was built to her specifications by the Porsche Exclusive personalization department.
On the outside, Sharapova’s Panamera GTS sports a high-gloss white paint job with black LED headlights, tinted LED taillights, black tailpipes and 20-inch Panamera black alloy wheels.
Inside, Sharapova opted for the extended leather trim option with contrast stitching. The Porsche crest has been embroidered on the headrests. The cabin comes with carbon fiber door sill guards with ‘Maria Sharapova’ lettering.
The Porsche Panamera GTS has a 4.8-liter V-8 good for 440 horsepower. It has a top speed of 178 mph, and can go from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds.
Sharpova was showing off her new Panamera at the Sochi Olympic games. She was named the spokesperson for Porsche last April.
