When you think of the Porsche 918 Spyder with the Weissach package, the last thing you’d probably expect is for an owner of one to take it for a top speed run, but that’s exactly what happened here. Power comes from a 4.6L V8 engine, paired with two electric motors, that generate a combined 875 hp and 944 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed PDK double-clutch gearbox.
This top speed run took place at 2:00pm local time and the track temperature clocked in at a comfortable 75-degrees Fahrenheit. The track is around 3.22-mile long, with 2.3-miles of it being used, and as you can see, that was plenty of concrete / asphalt for the Porsche 918 Spyder to achieve 215 mph. How much would a 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach Edition cost you today? Well, there was a recent sale for $2.03-million USD for a pristine example with just 1,000-miles on the odometer.
