A Porsche 918 Spyder has been taken for a lap at Curborough and the clip posted below is showing you what it is like to be the passenger in such a hypercar.
It may have been officially presented to the public during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in its final production form, but that isn’t stopping its every appearance to be well documented. We’re talking about one of the three hybrid supercars available on the market, the Porsche 918 Spyder. The video posted below is showing an on-board passenger lap at Curborough but don’t expect anything fast or impressive because the driver is currently trying to get the hang of it.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is the most powerful road-legal supercar ever produced by the German marque. The model is making use of a 4.6 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, rated at 608 HP (453 kW) and 528 Nm (389 lb-ft) of torque. Power is supplemented by two electric motors, providing an extra 279 HP (208 kW). One rear motor is driving the rear wheels along with the engine and it is also serving as a main generator. The front motor is driving the front axle. The total output produced by this assembly stands at 887 HP (661 kW) and 1,275 Nm (940 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) it needs just 2.5 seconds and top speed is 340 km/h (210 mph). The hypercar has a rear-mid engine and all-wheel drive layout.
