In Northern Territory, Australia, there is a town called Alice Springs. It has a population of just 28,605, which is remarkably low when compared to our company’s hometown, St. Petersburg, Florida, which has a population of roughly 250,000. But, Alice Springs has something our city does not, and it’s a video of a Porsche 918 Spyder going flat out on one of the town’s long straightaways.

Porsche uploaded a new video today to YouTube starring their hybrid hypercar. In the video, the driver takes the 918 up to 217.48 mph (350 km/h), even though Porsche states the top speed of the car is 214 mph.

Recently, we published an article about a 918 Spyder racing a Koenigsegg Agera R. In this video, the 918 also hits a top speed of 217.48 mph.

Check out the video above to see what it’s like to go flat out in Porsche’s latest hypercar on an Australian straight.
