The newest image with the Porsche 918 Spyder which was involved in an unfortunate incident in Malta recently is showing it on the back of a tow truck, being taken away for investigations. It is believed that the German hypercar has suffered a defect which may have led to the crash in which it has been involved at the PaqPaqli show, in Malta. We are not sure at this point from what condition it may be suffering, but we will keep you posted once more info is available.

Porsche has officially pulled the wraps off the 918 Spyder, in its final version, six months after its two main rivals, the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. This is the most powerful and fastest road-legal Porsche ever made and it is also using a hybrid powertrain. This is made out of the 4.6 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine and the two electric motors. The total output stands at 887 HP (661 kW) and 1,280 Nm (940 lb-ft) of torque, which is sent to the all-wheel drive system through a 7-speed PDK transmission, allowing the hypercar to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in just 2.5 seconds and to go up to a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
