The Porsche 918 may be gone, but it certainly isn't forgotten. The hybrid hypercar hit the scene in 2013, and though it stuck around for just two years, itmade a name for itself against rivals like the LaFerrari and the McLaren P1.
At a cost of £781,155 when new, it was relatively affordable in a class of million-dollar MSRPs. But more used models are showing up online, and they aren't cheap.
This particular example – a pristine 918 Spyder with the optional Weissach package – is up for sale on MotorGT.com through Porsche of South Shore in New York, and asks for a hefty £1.68 million. But we'd argue it's worth the exuberant asking price.
Finished in a handsome Onyx white paint job with a legendary Martini livery, the handsome hypercar has more than £65,000 worth of options fitted. Things like magnesium Spyder wheels, lighter brakes, ceramic wheel bearings, titanium chassis bolts, and a bunch aerodynamic aids boost the asking price.
Even more impressive is how lightly used it is. The odometer reads out just 45 original miles – delivery miles, to be precise. The 4.6-litre hybrid V8, paired with two electric motors, produces a whopping 887 bhp and 944 lb-ft of torque. Paired to a lone seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive, this 918 is capable of sprinting to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 211 mph.
Black leather coats nearly every inch of the cabin. The only two options here are the carbon fibre floor mats with silver piping, which cost a cool £1,325, and the painted key with a leather pouch, another thousand pounds. Lightweight bucket seats and a Burmester high-end surround sound system come standard on this trim.
If you can swallow the £1.7 million asking price, this is one pretty Porsche.
