[VIDEO] Porsche 918 Spyder driven by Autocar

The guys at Autocar have recently went for a spin in one of the most impressive supercars money can buy these days, the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Steve Sutcliffe from Autocar can consider himself one lucky bloke after he managed to drive the brand new Porsche 918 Spyder, which has recently become the fastest ever production car on the Nurburgring and it will remain there until McLaren will announce its one P1 time on the track, which is currently said to be “less than 7 minutes”. The British automotive journalist is trying to see whether the Porsche 918 Spyder is actually better than a Bugatti Veyron and the result will definitely amaze you. Check out Autocar’s test with the Porsche 918 Spyder below.

The Porsche 918 Spyder is a direct rival for the Ferrari LaFerrari and for the McLaren P1 and it has been officially unveiled, in its final production form, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, back in September. The model in question can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.7 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.2 seconds. Power is being provided by a 4.6 liter naturally aspirated V8 gasoline engine, helped by two electric motors. The total output produced stands at 887 HP (652 kW) and 1,289 Nm (944 lb-ft) of torque.
