Professional race car driver Mark Webber is no stranger to extremely fast cars, considering he races LMP1 cars for Porsche. This is why he’s going to feel right at home in the Porsche 918 Spyder he just got himself for his 39th birthday.
Being such a prized racer for Porsche, of course he was going to get a special example of the German hypercar. His new 918 Spyder, #605, is a one-off model customized exactly to his tastes, according to an Aug. 27 press release from Porsche. The car features the red and white exterior paintwork in the “Salzburg Design,” while the interior has been specially upgraded with a mostly black cabin and contrasting white piping.
While he will get to enjoy his free time in the 918 Spyder, he also has a job to do in his Porsche 919 Hybrid race car. In fact, he will be racing this weekend at the FIA WEC 6 Hours of Nürburgring event. We wish him the best of luck.
