Porsche 918 Spyder in Racing Yellow spotted in Brazil

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 22, 2014

Porsche’s 918 Spyder is usually spotted in colours such as the GT Silver Metallic or the Rhodium Silver Metallic, but it appears that some people want to be different. It’s the case of this 918 Spyder owner from Sao Paolo, which ordered his supercar in a special Racing Yellow colour.

Although many of you will not like it, we do admit that the vehicle looks quite impressive and almost matches the Brazilian flag. For those who don’t know, the Porsche 918 Spyder is powered by a 4.6-liter V8 engine that delivers 570 hp, but also by a hybrid module on the rear axle that generates 90 kW as well as by an electric motor on the front axle that develops 80 kW.

The total output delivered by the Porsche 918 Spyder is 750 Nm. The supercar also comes with a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 6.8 kWh.

Porsche’s 918 Spyder accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 9 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in under 27 seconds. Top speed is in excess of 325 km/h or 202 mph.

Using just the electric motors, the vehicle has a range of more than 25 km (15.5 miles), while top speed is 150 km/h or 93 mph. Despite the performances, fuel consumption is around 3.0 l/100 km. Pricing starts at $845,000 in the United States, excluding the $2,975 destination charge.
