The Pacific Northwest is enduring the cold of winter, but just north of the border lies the hottest car on the market: Porsche’s 918. In order to produce the fastest time on the Nürburgring, significant weight reduction was needed. With clever use of lighter materials, the Weissach Package cuts around 100 lbs from the chassis. The result was a blistering lap time of 6:57. Because the package was aimed at the racing enthusiast, many dealers were reticent to add an additional $80,000 to the invoice.

- 0-60 mph: 2.5 seconds
MUST READ: Porsche 918: Weissach Package Explained
A few dealers saw the light and were led to order as much content as possible. What you see here is the only white 918 Spyder with the weissach package in Martini Racing livery. Our friends at Porsche Center Langley would also like to add that this particular 918 is among just a few Porsche 918 models that were sold in Canada. Aside from making the world’s most popular vermouth, Martini Racing fielded some of the most potent Porsches of all time. Martini’s historic colors have produced podium finishes since 1968, and we’re glad Porsche has such a passion for the past.This example has accrued only 938 kilometers and is loaded with options. “Custom Tailoring” and the Interior Glare Reduction caught our attention, but this car also comes with Front Axle Lift and Burmester Audio. The only time you will see a 918 of this caliber again will be when you open your garage door.
