The Porsche 918 Spyder has made its UK debut at the Goodwood Moving Motor Show today. 

The concept racer – which goes on sale in left-hand drive format only from November 2013 – will cost from 645,000 euro (excl VAT) and will be limited to no more than 918 units.

The variable all-wheel drive hybrid hypercar is powered by a high revving 4.6-litre V8 unit, which is backed up by two electric motors, one on each axle.

Combined, the Porsche 918 Spyder generates 759bhp and a claimed 94mpg economy figure with just 70g/km CO2 emitted from the tailpipes.

Sprinting to 62mph from standing takes 3.2sec and driven flat out, the Spyder will hit 199mph. Top speed on electric power alone is 94mph.

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
