Porsche 918 Spyder In Martini Livery Hot Weather Testing In Spain

Last week Porsche started testing the hot 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid at the extreme Nürburgring.

Finished in Martini livery, the prototype was driven by racing legend and Porsche test driver Walter Röhrl. We wouldn’t be surprised to hear soon, that the hot 918 Spyder is the new Nürburgring lap record holder.

The 918 Spyder features a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, that combines a 570bhp 4.6 litre V8 engine and two electric motors for a total power output of 770bhp. 0-62mph comes in less than 3.0sec and the top speed is over 201mph. Range on EV mode is up to 15 miles.

The 918 Spyder will be available only in left-hand drive format with production scheduled to start at the end of September 2013. Priced from 645k euro (plus VAT) it will be limited to no more than 918 units.

Today we have a new set of photos showing the 918 Spyder hot weather testing in Spain. You can see the big brakes and 21-inch wheels as well as the new exhaust system. The picture of rear light shows that this is still fake.
