The second example of the impressive Porsche 918 Spyder has been delivered in Brazil and the hybrid supercar is wearing a yellow shade.
The Porsche 918 Spyder has begun its deliveries worldwide, despite being produced in just 918 units, and the second one to arrive at its new owner’s garage has received a Brazilian passport, and just in time for the World Cup. The model in question is wearing an attractive yellow finish on its body and it has been seen cruising the streets of the South American country, attracting a lot of attention.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is a two-seater hybrid supercar and the company’s most powerful production model up to date. It has a 4.6 liter V8 engine under its hood, which is backed up by two electric motors. The total output produced stands at a staggering 887 HP (661 kW) and 1,275 Nm (940 lb-ft) of torque. This is translated into a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in just 2.6 seconds and a top speed of approximately 345 km/h (214 mph). The 918 Spyder has been officially unveiled, in its production form, last year, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
