Chris Harris has recently went for a spin on the track in one of the hottest supercars money can buy these days, the Porsche 918 Spyder.
Drive Magazine’s Chris Harris had the chance to drive the Porsche 918 Spyder, which is currently the fastest production car on the Nurburgring and a direct rival for the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1. If you’re interested in it, the automotive journalist will tell you just about everything you need to know and if you wanted to see it in action, sideways, you’re in the right place, because the footage posted below is also revealing some drift fun with the German supercar.
The Ferrari 918 Spyder is a hybrid supercar, which is getting a 4.6 liter V8 naturally aspirated engine under its hood, producing 608 BHP, backed up by two electric motors, mounted on each axle. According to the car manufacturer, the total output produced by the assembly stands at 887 HP (652 kW) and between 917 Nm (676 lb-ft) and 1,289 Nm (944 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, which is helping the model sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.7 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in just 7.2 seconds.
