So you have seen the Ferrari LaFerrai which is undoubtedly an impressive machine. The Porsche 918 Spyder is an equally impressive machine. The Spyder is powered by a 4.6 liter V8, developing 608 horsepower, with two electric motors delivering an additional 279 horsepower for a combined output of 887 horsepower, that’s pretty impressive to say the least. One of the highlights for Porsche was getting the 918 round the Nurburgring in under seven minutes, smashing the previous record for a production car by fourteen seconds. The hyper Hybrid will set you back a cool half a million but I’m sure you will agree, it is a stunning looking car and all the better for that gorgeous Martini Livery!
