If you’re looking to complete your supercar collection with one of the models in the holy hybrid hypercar trinity then you’re in luck – a very interesting Porsche 918 Spyder with few miles on the odometer has surfaced at CNC Motors in Ontario, California.
Since we’re talking about one of the models that will go head to head with the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1 supercars, the Porsche 918 Sypder was special the moment it was created and left the production site. But this one has even more exclusivity attached to it – it bears the optional Weissach Package. And because he lacked the necessary spare change, the original owner purchased the car without an factory paint – though don’t imagine you’ll get to see the exposed carbon fiber strands because the body was dully wrapped in a full matte black protection to make it safe from scratches. Losing the paint, this US-spec 918 Spyder has also gone down on the scale by about 14 lbs (6.3 kg) and the fat loosing procedures also involved taking inside new nomex-covered racing seats. The Weissach kit adds the 20-inch front and 21-inch rear magnesium wheels, which come with a weight save of 2.8 lbs (14.8 kg) compared to the regular 918 Spyder – and all these changes can make the difference between a lost/won battle with the LaFerrari and P1.
By the way, you should hurry snatching it because the 918’s production run of 918 units has been wrapped and the listing also claims this is the only example with this exact configuration – which is identical to the one that broke down the Nurburgring lap record posting a 6:57 time. And looking as if pulled from the factory line, the Porsche 918 Weissach has clocked just 1,856 miles (2,986 km) on its odometer.
