The brand new Porsche 918 Spyder has been recently spotted in action while it was being tested on the famous German track, the Nurburgring.
Porsche’s latest creation in terms of supercars is named the 918 Spyder and the model is no longer a surprise for anyone who is reading the automotive media constantly. The new Porsche 918 Spyder will be competing with models like the Ferrari LaFerrari and with the McLaren P1 and it will be the company’s first ever hybrid supercar. The final production version of the Porsche 918 Spyder is expected to be officially unveiled in September, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Power to the Porsche 918 Spyder will be provided by a 4.0 liter V8 engine, which will be backed up by electric motors, producing a total output of 795 HP and 575 lb-ft of torque. The 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration will be done in less than 3.0 seconds and top speed will stand at just over 200 mph (320 km/h). The model should return 94.1 mpg UK and the CO2 emissions should stand at 70 g/km. More details on the hybrid supercar are limited for the moment and will probably be announced close to its debut.
