A Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid supercar has been taken to Iceland recently where the model in question proved that it has what it needs in order to cope with the ice and snow.
Despite being officially introduced almost two years ago, the Porsche 918 Spyder continues to fascinate petrol heads so its appearance is still “documented”. The newest footage with the German hybrid supercar is coming all the way from Iceland where this has been shown drifting on ice, so if you were concerned that this cannot be used in winter time, think again, because the clip posted below is showing the opposite. Don’t expect some high speed driving though.
The Porsche 918 Spyder has been produced in 918 units and all of them have been sold out. The supercar was officially presented to the public back in 2013, during the Frankfurt Motor Show, and it is a rival for the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari LaFerrari. The hybrid supercar has a two-door roadster body style, along with a mid-engine and all-wheel drive layout. It is using 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 with an extra 279 HP (208 kW). The total output is 887 HP (661 kW) and 1,275 Nm (940 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in just 2.6s and a top speed of 340 km/h (210 mph).
