Just a few short months ago, real estate guru and prolific Instagrammer Manny Khoshbin took delivery of a white McLaren P1 dubbed the MK Edition. It joined his immense collection which includes the likes of two Bugatti Veyrons, including the Mansory Linea d’Oro, three SLR McLarens, a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe and Porsche Carrera GT among others.
Now Khoshbin has confirmed that he has ordered a Porsche 918 Spyder. In an Instagram post, he revealed that after finding out Car and Driver had recorded a 2.2 second sprint to 96 km/h (60 mph), he just had to order one before the German hybrid hypercar officially sold out. When he takes delivery next year, Khoshbin will become one of a very select few to own more than one of the current hybrid hypercars.
GTspirit Review of Porsche 918 Spyder
Under the hood, the Porsche 918 Spyder uses a mid-mounted 4.6-litre V8 engine producing 608 hp independently – the highest specific power of any naturally aspirated Porsche engine. The V8 is then supplemented by a further two electric motors mounted on each axle. The electric motors can either drive the wheels independently or work together with the engine to boost performance. Each motor produces enough power to boost the total figure to an amazing 887 hp. A seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) controls power delivery to the rear wheels.
