Porsche 918 Spyder

Here is the Porsche 918 Spyder where the pricing for Europe have been announced…. at 781,000 Euros. This is a “something else” Porsche that you see on the road these days. It somehow have evolved much further to another level, with those kind of body lines that just spells Aerodynamic !

Another interesting perspective about the 918 is where the exhaust is sitting, right behind the seats ! I am not sure how good is the soundproof of the car, but i think this would be pretty loud for the driver itself.

If you see the first and the second image, you will notice that the spoiler is different. This is controlled by Porsche’s Active Aerodynamic system where if you select different modes, the spoiler will be in different position. There is E-Power, Sport and Race Modes to be chosen.

Next, behind the seat will be the 4.6L V8 engine that can generate 600+ Hp. But it doesn’t stop there. There are electric motors at the front and back that will make the total horsepower to a staggering 887 Hp ! It can do the century run in 2.8 secs !

Check out the interior, where you see the center console is giving you some “space age” feeling, with information that is laid flat on the panel.

The sound coming from an engine revving to its limits is really music to my ears !
