And we can now see just how expensive the servicing bill will be.
Do you remember the “redneck” who crashed his Porsche 918 Spyder more than a week ago, while using the Launch Control feature? Well, he was lucky not to kill anyone but in the low-res video we couldn’t really see just how bad the damages were. Things have changed, however, because the guys from Wrecked Exotics have published an image in which we can see the dents in its right front wing, the shattered front bumper, the damaged headlight and the scratched hood and rim. If we were talking about your ordinary everyday vehicle, the servicing bill wouldn’t have been that expensive, but keep in mind that this is a high-performance exotic hypercar, produced in a limited number.
The Porsche 918 Spyder has been put together in just 918 units. The hypercar was first shown, in its final production form, at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, and it was Porsche’s answer to the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1. The 918 Spyder has a mid-engine and all-wheel drive layout and it is considered to be the spiritual successor of the Carrera GT. The exotic vehicle stands at 4,643 mm long, 1,940 mm wide and 1,167 mm tall. Under its hood we can find a 4.6 liter V8 engine and two electric motors, putting down a total of 887 HP (661 kW) and 1,275 Nm (940 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the hypercar needs just 2.5 seconds and it can go up to 340 km/h (210 mph). All examples have been sold out.
