Here is a wonderful video by Ignition. Carlos Lago tests the Porsche 918 Spyder in Spain. Boasting an electric motor on the front axle and a parallel hybrid setup for the rear, this hypercar produces a combined 874 hp and 944 lb-ft of torque and aims to set a new precedent for performance and efficiency. To this end, it has a dizzying amount of motorsports-derived technology — its carbon fiber passenger tub, engine, and chassis are derived from the concepts that created the RS Spyder ALMS racecar — but its European test cycle fuel economy results are comparable to the Toyota Yaris Hybrid’s. How well does this immensely complex hypercar work? Check out the video for a review on this amazing hypercar.
