The launch of the Porsche 918 has redefined the supercar and introduced a new group, known as the "hypercars". The 918, along with the La Ferrari and McLaren P1, herald the arrival of a new generation of cars and this elite selection including the 918, offer technology never before seen in motor vehicles. The power of the internal combustion engine has been coupled together with hybrid technology to deliver a package that is quite simply mesmerising.

In the 918 Spyder, there are two electric motors present which deliver a combined 286hp - the highest power output of any production hybrid motor the world has seen. The hybrid battery, which is a liquid-cooled high performance lithium-ion variant, offers an instantaneous boost to the electric motors and can be recharged using a conventional power output and charging lead, or can be recharged while the vehicle is in motion. In one such scenario, a portion of the vehicle's kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy by the electric motors. Additionally, one of the electric motors can be driven by the engine, acting as a generator and thus charging the hybrid battery. As a result, driving in purely electric mode can be achieved, or the greater reserves of energy can be used to enhance the cars performance around the track. The standard charging time for the vehicle when connected to a 240v supply is around two hours.

The combined power output is almost 900hp, with a 4.6 litre V8 engine providing a truly fantastic soundtrack. The top speed of the car is 214mph, with a 0-60 time of just 2.5 seconds and the car can accelerate from 49 to 74mph on a scarcely believable 1.2 seconds. With the roof removed, the experience delivered all the more extraordinary. The all electric range is up to 19 miles and the car will achieve an average mpg of around 30. The car is very light; the monocoque tub, sub-frame, doors and body panels are manufactured from carbon-fibre reinforced plastic, while the bumpers are made from polyurethane. The suspension is forged aluminium wishbones, the PASM adaptive dampers fitted as standard. Another feature of the car is the 4-wheel steering which improves cornering, handling and stability. This is determined by the speed the vehicle is travelling at any given time and the rear axle can be manoeuvred in the same direction as the front wheels, or in the opposite direction to them.

This exceptional 918 Spyder was delivered new to the United Kingdom in July 2015 by Dick Lovett Porsche of Swindon, supplied in the stunning combination of Pure White over an Onyx Black Hide. Whilst the original owner spared the Weissach package in favour of a more road-oriented setup (the Weissach pack also removed sound deadening and front bonnet gas struts), the visual carbon fibre roof panels, exposed carbon fibre rear wing and carbon fibre door mirrors were optioned.

  • Front axle lift
  • Exposed Carbon fibre roof
  • Exposed Carbon fibre rear wing
  • Exposed Carbon fibre exterior mirrors
  • Exposed Carbon fibre front and rear diffuser
  • Black Alcantara seat centres
  • Yellow seat piping
  • Yellow seat belts
  • Exposed carbon fibre interior package
  • Cup holder
  • First aid kit
  • Full PPF paint protection film by Topaz

When the car was sold to its second keeper, the new owner requested Dick Lovett fit the remaining Weissach Package upgrades available from Porsche. The details of the parts added can be found below, and invoices are on file to document the £35,000 additional expense.

  • Exposed Carbon fibre front winglets
