The Porsche 918 Spyder stands apart as an automotive masterpiece thanks to its seamless merge of race-car performance and environmentally friendly fuel economy. Add the highly sought after Weissach package and an exposed carbon finish, and this 918 becomes one of the most exclusive available.
In fact, this particular Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach is the only example without paint available in the United States. Instead, the car is fashioned in a matte black, factory wrap which allows the carbon fiber elements to shine through. Just as impressive as the finish are the specifications. The $84,000 Weissach Package consists of a multitude of deletions and substitutions that remove a total 90 pounds of weight from the vehicle.
The Porsche 918 Spyder features a plug-in hybrid rocket that utilizes a bespoke 608-horsepower 4.6-liter direct fuel injected V-8 engine, which pushes 887 total horsepower with the ability to reach speeds of 217 mph. Sail from 0-60 mph in a mere 2.5 seconds, all while maintaining an unprecedented fuel range of 67 miles to the gallon.
As if these features weren’t enough, this particular 918 comes equipped with a Burmester High-End Surround Sound System, 2-zone climate control, Porsche Universal Charger, 25-foot vehicle cable, a set of Schroth Racing Belts and Porsche duffle bag. For the discerning collector looking to add a true masterpiece to his collection, the Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach fits the bill.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is offered by Mecum Auctions and will be available at the Monterey event located at Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa in gorgeous Monterey, California on August 18-20, 2016 at Lot S112. Click here to learn more.
