Porsche 918 Spyder steals the show from McLaren and Ferrari
|   Sunday, May 19, 2013
Porsche has been designing cars to compete in the super car sector that have been dominated by makers like Ferrari, McLaren and Aston Martin. They have done a lot of work and research to make sure that the latest inclusion to the company's line of cars makes the competitors run for their money. The Porsche 918 Spyder looks like the car to beat at the moment. With extra ordinary power the car has everything that it takes to make it the dream that every driver has.


It was a Herculean task to make sure that this car reached its pre-production form in just two years. The concept of this car was revealed at a motor show just two years ago and now the car has already undergone its first test drive. The car was tested at Porsche's test drive track in Leipzig.
Looking at the car it may not impress you as much as the La Ferrari or the McLaren P1. Those cars have the blend of technology and engineering. This car has concentrated more on the technical and engineering aspects paying least attention to the looks of the car. The base of the car is low and huge. The rear wing of the car is broad and has a lot to show to the people before it vanishes from sight.

The car has been powered by a 4.6 litre V8 engine that that is combined with two electric motors one at the back and one in front. This is a great car in terms of speed and power. The car can produce a maximum combined power of around 875 BHP. This is a lot but compared to the La Ferrari and the McLaren it is still low as the La Ferrari produces maximum power of 950 BHP and the McLaren P1 has a maximum power of 903 BHP.

The car is much heavier than its competitors. That should not be a factor at all. With all its technical aspects the car has a maximum speed of about 211 miles per hour. Now this could give the Ferrari and P1 a run for their money. The car has very good control while taking steep turns. The most incredible part is that you do not have to lower your speeds while taking turns.

A speed of 93 MPH can be reached only with electric power. This is the first front wheel drive car that the company has produced. The car has a lot of balance and grip on the roads. For a car of this power there is hardly and sound from the engine at an initial stage. This car could be placed under the race category and has five different drive modes.

When you rev up the car to its maximum limit the shrill of the car runs down your spine. At this stage the car has exceeded all expectations and is definitely a car to by. The company Boss made it clear that they are still working on the car and could make the car even better. Priced at £664,135 this car is one of the best that you could have. It provides complete value for your money.
