Porsche’s new 918 Spyder is set to become the company’s most expensive car, topping the Carrera GT.

The hybrid supercar may end up being priced at around 500,000 euro (£420,000) – eclipsing the £321,000 Carrera GT – sources connected to the model have told Bloomberg.

The sources have also claimed that more than 2000 expressions of interest have already been received for the car, although an official order book has yet to be opened by Porsche.

The 918 Spyder was one of three hybrid models presented by the Stuttgart-based manufacturer at the Geneva motor show in March.

The 918 Spyder can reportedly get from 0-62mph in just 3.2sec and reach a top speed of almost 200mph. It is powered by a 3.4-litre V8 petrol engine, producing around 500bhp, and two 80kW electric motors allowing the vehicle to run up to 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) on electric power. Its CO2 emissions are 70g/km.

Porsche says that it is capable of lapping the Nürburgring in less than 7m 30s.

If truth be told a M600 could hold it up to 160 and you would save £220,000.

Ah, but there's the badge snobbery quotient to be taken into consideration.

Also, with enormous respect to the lads at Noble - the M600 is clearly an absolute giant-killer - the 918 will be a far more sophisticated car, more civilised in day-to-day use and much more economical on the road.

I think it's a really nice looking car and you are paying for the tech as well as the performance.
