Porsche 918 Spyder Caught Cold Weather Testing at the Arctic Circle

We have seen plenty of pictures of the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder supercar testing at various locations from the Nürburgring race track to the sunny Spain.

This time the 918 Spyder has been caught for the first time testing at the extreme Arctic Circle. Porsche has brought two 918 Spyder prototypes to Sweden.

As you can see one fo the cars has the already familiar Martini livery and a big rear spoiler, while the second one is without it finished in matte grey/black with a number 16 on the side.

The 918 Spyder is powered by a 570bhp 4.6 litre V8 engine mated to electric motors that has a total output of 770bhp. 0-62mph comes in less than 3.0 seconds and the top speed is over 200mph (over 90mph on purely electric mode).

The 918 Spyder will be available only in left-hand drive with production scheduled to start at the end of September. Priced from 645k euro (plus VAT) it will be limited to no more than 918 units.
