Now that Porsche has ended the production of the 918 Spyder, certain owners feel the need to make their hypercars stand out among their own breed. Let’s take the driver of the 918 in the video below, for instance.
The man decided to gift his hybrid Porsche with a Martini livery. Having put on the motorsport-savvy apparel, the hypercar started engaging in all sorts of shenanigans in London.

A few days ago, this 918 ignored its all-wheel-drive and went slightly sideways in the UK’s capital city. While we ignored that (you can now check out the footage at the bottom of the page), we can’t go over the latest adventure of the Zuffenhausen machine.

The 918 Spyder pulled the classic right-under-you maneuver on a parking barrier, as you’ll be able to see in the clip below.

Not exactly a surprise

Measuring 45.9 inches (that’s 116.6 cm for all you reading this on the Old Continent) in height, the Porsche doesn’t exactly surprise us by managing to troll the parking barrier, but watching the process is still amusing.

As we mentioned above, the Instagram account that was used to show us the video of the parking stunt offers us more of the 918’s adventures in London.

For instance, Porsches are not the best machines out there when it comes to their circle of friends - these cars like to win on the track and the ones you beat may not want to hang out with you once the race is over. Well, this 918 is different, as it managed to find a bit of a soul mate in a just-as-Martini-dressed Lancia Delta HF Integrale.

The hybrid hypercar also spent some quality time with a McLaren F1 GTR, with the episode involving a bit of positive interaction with the police. It's all explained in the images below.

Then again, these adventures only show that, when Porsche and Martini get together, the party is guaranteed.


The good thing about the 918 is that if in a hurry you don't need to wait for the barrier to lift when getting into a parking!! #918Spyder #CarPorn #FreeParking #SlowestBarrierEver #QuickestCarEver
