Porsche has revealed images of its new Porsche 918 Spyder prototype testing in Martini Racing livery.
The new car’s exterior design is a nod to the design of the marque’s Le Mans-winning Porsche 917 racer of 1971 and will be made available for 918 customers.
Porsche’s upcoming 202mph petrol-electric hybrid 918 Spyder is powered by a race-derived 4.6-litre V8 and two electric motors, producing 762bhp and 552lb ft in total.
According to Porsche, the 918 Spyder weighs “less than 1700kg” and will be made available with a stripped-out Race Track package.
Martini officially partnered the Porsche factory team between 1973 and 1978, during which Martini Porsche racers finished first in the 1973 Targa Florio and 1976 Sports Car Championship, as well as claiming victories in the 1976 and 1977 Le Mans 24-hour races.
