Porsche 918 Spyder Blasts up the Goodwood Hill ClimbJune 29th, 2014
Porsche’s Chief Driving Consultant Gordon Robertson takes the $845,000+ 918 Spyder Weissach Package supercar to the Goodwood Festival of Speed to tackle the Goodwood Hill Climb. The hybrid 918 Spyder has a 4.6-liter, 8-cylinder engine capable of producing 608 horsepower plus two electric motors in the front and rear, which combine to make an astounding 887 horsepower.
But Robertson puts the car in all electric mode to pull up to the start line, which seems to take the spectators by surprise since the car is essentially silent. But then he flips it over to performance mode and screams up the 1.16 mile course.
The 918 Spyder is one of the fastest production cars in the world, holding the current record for the Nürburgring, and Robertson seems to have great fun driving it along the historic but hazardous roads of Goodwood.
