Spyshots: Porsche 918 Spyder Winter Testing
At least, that's what we think the mentality of the person who buys one of these is like. And we say that because we really can't imagine anybody wanting to pay $845,000 not including tax for a Porsche. Not a Ferrari Enzo, or a Zonda.
But if there ever was a technological showcase that's worth that sort of money, it would have to be this one. It's an advanced hybrid supercar that offers a high-strung 4.6-liter mid-mounted V8 with 570 PS and a pair of electric motors that do their part towards a combined output of 800 PS or so.
The drivetrain is so advanced that it can sip fuel at the rate of supermini or blitz the Nurburgring in just 7 minutes 14 seconds.
This is the first time it's been spotted undergoing winter testing in chilly Scandinavia. However, the 918 has toured the world, filling at gas stations from the Nurburgring to Nevada.
