Several Porsche 918 Spyders seen testing in Italy

Several units of the impressive Porsche 918 Spyder have been recently caught on camera while they were being tested in Italy.

The Porsche 918 Spyder may have been officially unveiled back in September 2013, during the Frankfurt Motor Show, but its appearance still turns a lot of heads, and this is exactly what happened here, as several units of the hybrid supercar have been seen in Italy, while they were being tested. Porsche is probably using these six 918 Spyders in order to make small improvements to the car.

The Porsche 918 Spyder has a mid engine and an all-wheel drive layout, coming with a 7-speed PDK dual clutch transmission and a 6.8 kWh liquid cooled lithium-ion battery, providing an electric range of approximately 29 km (18 miles). The hybrid supercar has a 4.6 liter V8 engine under its hood, rated at 608 HP (453 kW) and 528 Nm (389 lb-ft) of torque, backed up by two electric motors, which are generating an extra 279 HP (208 kW) and 154 HP (115 kW). The total output stands at 887 HP (661 kW) and 1,275 Nm (940 lb-ft) of torque. The Porsche 918 Spyder can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.6 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 345 km/h (214 mph).
