Porsche 918 Martini
The Martini livery is making a comeback on Porsche cars, and a racing version of the forthcoming 918 Spyder. Porsche released pictures of a prototype 918 sporting the livery, and it looks utterly magnificent.
They have even decided to show off the livery on test cars dispatched around the world. The 918 is under a serious test regime. A fundamental element of the testing programme for the plug-in hybrid super sports car – as is the case in the development process of all Porsche cars – is the 20.8 km Nürburgring-Nordschleife race circuit. Indeed, a lap time of less than seven minutes 22 seconds around the challenging track in the Eifel region of Germany is one of the development goals of the 918 Spyder.
To be launched next year, Porsche 918 Spyder will cause a stir in the world of supercars.
About Porsche 918:
The 918 Spyder combines a high-performance internal combustion engine with electric motors on the rear and front axles to achieve extraordinary driving performance and excellent efficiency.
The combined system power of the drivetrain is 770 hp and the NEDC fuel consumption is forecast to be only around three litres per 100 km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of about 70 g/km. While the livery of the prototype is reminiscent of historical models, this advanced technology ensures the Porsche 918 Spyder is clearly a super sports car for the future.
The monocoque of the 918 Spyder is constructed from carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP), which reduces vehicle weight and delivers remarkable rigidity and dynamic precision. Other highlights are fully variable aerodynamics, adaptive rear axle steering and the ‘top pipes’ exhaust system which routes the exhaust upwards at the rear of the car.
