Today’s supercars are experiencing a rebirth in not only technology but also overall sex appeal. No longer simple shapes for those stealth drives around town and no more over exaggerated openings with no other function beyond visual impact.

Porsche’s 918 debuted a few years ago and has kept public interest with a steady dose of production reality. Today they gave us automotive knuckle-heads something to drool over, their 918 in Martini® livery.

Harking back to the company and team’s dominance throughout Le Mans in the early 70’s. Inciting childlike fantasies of high speed overtaking down Mulsanne straight. The new 918 Spyder Prototype aims to reignite this hidden barbaric passion through its modern Martini® racing graphics.

The Porsche 918 boasts a 570hp mid-engine V8 coupled with a 70kW electric motor mounted on the front axel along with a 90kW hybrid rear mounted module, topping out the overall power output at 770hp.
