The new hybrid supercar is the quickest car with global road homologation to lap the 12.8 mile Nürburgring Nordschleife in just six minutes and 57 seconds.

The 918 Spyder is equipped with 5 driving modes for 3 motors, that are controlled via an intelligent management system. Learn more in the video below.
