Apparently Porsche has been using different Martini Racing-themed monochromatic outfits while testing prototypes of the future 918 Spyder. The reason for the strange wrapping is the fact that the automaker signed a deal with the Martini brand which is represented by Bacardi & Co. Ltd. The specialists will provide the racing livery on the production version of the 918 Spyder, which will be available for purchase in September, next year. The model will have a starting price of EUR645.000 which means about $789.900.
This price does not include taxes and other charges asked by different countries. To make an easier idea, Porsche offered us different photos with their new model, the 918 Spyder, all wrapped in a Martini Racing full-color cover. Porsche and Martini Racing go way back, 1971 to be more precise, when a Porsche 917 managed to finish first in Le Mans with the support of Martini. They became official partners of the Porsche factory racing team in 1973 until 1978.
Apparently the driving trials of the Porsche 918 Spyder are making the next step which means that the German specialists will tune the hybrid supercar on the Nurburgring-Nordschleife race circuit that measures 20.8 km. The specialists hope to obtain a lap time of less than seven minutes and 22 seconds. The Carrera GT obtained seven minutes and 32 seconds. Under the hood, the model hides a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 internal combustion engine that features electric drives at the rear and front axles, which is capable of developing 762 horsepower. Porsche also offered fully variable aerodynamics, a special exhaust system and adaptive rear axle steering. The final results will be revealed soon.
