Porsche has finally revealed the performance figures of the brand new 918 Spyder, just before delivering the first units of the hybrid supercar.
The German based automaker Porsche is getting ready to deliver the first unit of the 918 Spyder and in order to place the model into the spotlights once again, the performance figures of the supercar have been updated and revealed. For instance, the 918 Spyder only needed 2.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) but it seems that the vehicle can now do it in 2.5 seconds. The 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) sprint takes 7.2 seconds, with the Weissach package, making it 0.5 seconds quicker than before.
Porsche has also shaved 2.1 seconds from the 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) sprint, which is now made in just 19.9 seconds. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration made in electric mode takes 6.2 seconds, 0.7 seconds faster than before, or 6.1 seconds with the Weissach kit. The Porsche 918 Spyder is currently the world’s fastest production car around the Nurburgring, after it lapped the Nordschleife in just 6 minutes and 57 seconds. Power is being provided by a 4.6L V8 naturally aspirated gasoline engine, backed up by two electric motors.
