The video you’re about to see has surfaced online that shows a production-ready Porsche 918 Spyder. The car was revealed to a group of selected potential customers in New York. The reason we can tell that those in attendance are customers is because not a single person has his/her camera out snapping pictures like crazy. The event was to display and release the production ready Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid supercar.
Under the hood, the Porsche 918 spyder hybrid supercar will use a 4.6-liter V8 petrol engine, mounted in the middle of the car. This engine will produce a peak power of 570 Bhp and will be the main power source of the car. The internal combustion engine will be supplemented by two electric motors, situated on the front and rear axle of the car to optimize weight distribution. The electric motors that run on lithium ion battery power will together, generate another 200 Bhp of peak power to take the total power output of the car to a mammoth 770 Bhp.
All this power and the instantaneous torque output of the electric motors will give the 918 Hybrid Supercar blistering acceleration with the 0-100 Kph sprint coming in 3.2 seconds. Top speed, typical of every supercar designated so, is a heady 325 Kph. Fuel-economy is estimated to come in around 33 kmpl. Porsche has said that it is aiming for a Nurburgring Nordschleife lap time of 7 minutes and 22 seconds for the plug-in hybrid supercar.
