Sales for Porsche 918 Spyder started today

Well, one of the greatest news for today come from Porsche, who announced that sales started today for the 918 Spyder. Still, that is not all. The official price is EUR645,000, not including VAT and country-specific charges. But, if you can afford to spend that amount of money, for sure you will enjoy a lot of uniqueness.
Assembly of the car is scheduled to start in 2013, September 18th at Porsche's main plant in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen . After the date of purchase, the keys of the cars will be in their owner's hands after just two months.
The 918 Spyder is powered by a distinctive type of plug-in hybrid system, which compromises a high-rewing V8 engine with a displacement of over four litres and output of more than 368 kW (500 hp), plus two electric motors with a combined output of at least 160 kW (218 hp). The power is delivered to the rear wheels by a compact seven gear double-clutch PDK transmission. This receives the help from two electric motors, one each for the front and rear.
The car reaches the speed of 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and gets to 320 km/h top speed. At 150 km/h the car can be driven on only electric power and what is more impressive is the fuel consumption of 3.0l/100 km.
