VIDEO: The brilliant Porsche 918 Hybrid Spyder

Speedcafe’s TV crew hooked up with Porsche for a domestic press reveal/test of the V8 petrol-electric hybrid 918 supercar. Production of this Weissach weapon is limited to run to just 918 but it won’t be able to be road registered in Australia.

Porsche gave hardcore Australian enthusiasts a chance to buy one of five as a track-only toy at $1.5m a pop when the car was first confirmed for production, but no-one is believed to have taken up the offer.

Power/torque: 652kW/1280Nm
