VIDEO: Porsche 918 Spyder Prototype Testing In Dubai
A Porsche 918 Spyder Prototype was recently testing in Dubai at the Autodrome Circuit and this in-car video was captured and posted to Youtube.
The 918 Spyder is a mid-engined two-seater sports car powered by a 4.6 liter V8 engine which is a development of the engine used in the RS Spyder racing car. The engine delivers 580 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and is supplemented by two electric motors delivering an additional 240 hp.
In this video, you get a view during a few laps in the upcoming Supercar. Although mind blowingly quick, the video is a little under-whelming and quite boring. Although the sound from the 918 is sweet, it’s not as exciting as a million-dollar supercar should be. What do you think? Is the 918 Spyder everything it has been hyped up to be?
The video provides a good look at the interior and the digital console that provides lots of data for the driver. We have yet to see the 918 function it the Hybrid mode (or hear it for that matter) and it will be exciting when the car actually arrives sometime later this year.
