Having had the privilege of driving the Porsche 918 Spyder, we know that all the hype about the German hybrid hypercar is true. Beyond the performance provided by the 918, the car also features exceptionally unique styling and as the following gallery shows, the hypercar looks truly stunning on the famed Paul Ricard circuit in France.
Under the hood, the Porsche 918 Spyder of course 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.
