In addition to being able to blast to 62mph in less than five seconds, the D5 S can reach a top speed of 171mph. But, as impressive as these numbers are, it’s actually the 516lb ft of torque that’s most significant.
Put your foot down and the D5 S not only pulls hard from low revs but continues to pile on speed thereafter. Indeed, the engine’s muscle, allied to the speed with which the eight-speed automatic gearbox picks off gears, means there's basically a never-ending wave of performance.
