One of the most anticipated premier Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013, no doubt, can be called the new Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid supercar, which was listed car 2016 model year. However, all the details about the new product became known in May. At the heart of the Porsche 918 Spyder, which is the ideological successor to the Carrera GT, is carbon-fiber monocoque and body panels are made of composite materials.

Configuration and price the Porsche 918 Spyder 2016.

Equipment Price Engine Transmission Drive

Initially it was reported that the power of the hybrid power plant is 770 hp supercar (then 795 troops), but in the end, engineers have managed to squeeze out of the 4.6-liter naturally aspirated V8 and a pair of the machine, (one for each axle), all 887 “horses”, of which 608 developed engine. Increasing the power of Porsche 918 Spyder contributed competitors: previous Ferrari LaFerrari (963 hp) and the McLaren P1 (916 hp), way too hybrid, proved more powerful. But at Porsche say their model is more economical and technological, and its speed in turns exceeds the above model.
Mass of the Porsche 918 Spyder is 1675 kg (its distribution of 43:57 in favor of the rear axle), and with the optional package Weissach – 1 640. The latter includes the installation of lighter wheels of magnesium alloy, the additional aerodynamic elements and some parts of carbon fiber. In general, for weight loss of 35 kg of customers will have to pay an additional 84,000 dollars. By the way, for the money you can buy a basic version of the Porsche 911 Carrera. And do not forget that the installation package excludes equipment audio system, climate control and part of the inner door skin. The supercar is equipped with a 7-speed robotized PDK transmission, and on the acceleration from zero to hundred it takes only 2.6 seconds (0 to 200 km/h – for 7.2 sec., And 300 – for 19,9 seconds.). Maximum speed is 344 km/h, and the Nurburgring Nordschleife car crossed in 6 minutes and 57 seconds at an average speed of 179.5 kilometers per hour. The dynamic characteristics are given for the versions with Service Weissach, which in all disciplines to accelerate exceeds its main competitors. Power plant on the Porsche 918 Spyder has five modes of operation, which is responsible for the selection of a special switch on the steering wheel. In the first version (E-Power) moves avtomobl pure electric. A full battery charge is enough for about 30 kilometers, with a top speed limited to 130 km/h (in this mode, the auto gaining 100 km/h in seven seconds). When fully discharge a lithium-ion battery (its capacity is 6.8 kWh, cooling – liquid) automatically connects the internal combustion engine. If you have a stationary charger issuing direct current high voltage, the charging time will be reduced to 25 minutes. The second mode is called Hybrid – when activated uses the engine electronics and the electric motors based on the current traffic situation, but giving priority to maximize fuel economy. The system monitors the flow rate and in the mode of Sport Hybrid, where the gasoline engine runs constantly and electric motors connected during acceleration to ensure the best dynamics. Fourth Race Hybrid mode also means constant work of ICE and electric motors to give accelerations have all their power. The system is no longer seek to keep them constant charge that may be constantly changing. It reminds feature KERS in Formula 1 today. Finally, the fifth, the most extreme, Hot Lap mode is designed for maximum attack for a couple of laps, when all available resources are used to its full potential. In all five modes of active aerodynamics behaves differently, choosing between providing drag reduction (in eco mode) and an increase in downforce (at high speeds). As for fuel economy, is the Porsche 918 Spyder in hybrid mode consumes on average 3.3 liters of fuel per hundred kilometers. These figures competitors from Ferrari and McLaren is not even dreamed of. Results will be released 918 copies of the model at a price of 645,000 euros. For our country is allocated a quota of 7 machines, and for one of them, the company has already received an advance payment, as the representatives of Porsche reported during the motor show in Frankfurt. But even more expensive car will cost in the Chinese market. They asked for the base version of the 13.388 million yuan (about 1.623 million euros), and for the car with the optional package Weissach 14.635 million yuan, that is, about 1.775 million euros.
