While the BMW M3 is making some noise in Abu Dhabi with its San Marino Blue outfit, Porsche on the other hand, is catching people’s attention in Dubai as the 918 Spyder wears bright red livery. The reason why this model is turning heads is because Porsche isn’t known to give their cars distinct, bright livery unlike its competitors.
This shade of red might be common for a Ferrari, but definitely not for a Porsche - and there are only a few of them. In fact, this specific model is actually being sold by Deals on Wheels in Dubai. Another thing about this example is that even the carbon fiber roof has been painted red, instead of retaining its carbon fiber finish.
Not only is this Spyder looking spectacular on the outside, this Porsche 918 has also been upgraded with the optional Weissach package. This package comes with new aerodynamic fins on the rear bumper plus a set of lightweight wheels for better performance. If you didn’t know, the Weissach pack will make your Spyder faster by 0.2 second, making it sprint to 62 miles per hour in only 2.6 seconds. Moreover, the Acid Green brake calipers look great combined with the 918 Spyder’s red finish.
Whoever was the original owner of the 918 Spyder must have really good taste. We can tell by simply looking at the car he owned and the way it had been customized from the red leather seats, door panels and dashboard, combined with carbon fiber details on almost every element, inside and out. He must have spent so much money on this seriously special 918 Spyder.
This gas-electric hypercar had actually been talked about earlier this year along with a McLaren P1 and a LaFerrari. However, at that time, the specific model was not listed yet. But the Carbon Edition McLaren, with zero miles on its odometer, was being sold through a Dubai trader. The LaFerrari, on the other hand, was up in the market too covering only 100 miles.
Again, you can get our hands on this rare Porsche at Deals on Wheels for $1.6 million. But it is currently based in Dubai and I am not sure whether this is open to international buyers. Remember that the German company only produced 918 units of the 918 Spyder. Add to that the fact that it has been customized makes that $1.6 million price tag reasonable.
Another similar story was published a few months ago when a Chrome Red Porsche 918 Spyder was seen on Miami Beach - it also had a Weissach Pack, and carbon fibers details throughout its body.
