Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid drives - first real video
This past Thursday, the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid made its driving debut on
a closed road in Monterey California, just days prior to its appearance at
the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
After being shipped over from Germany by plane, engineers handed the keys

electro-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities: An emission
level of just 70 grams CO2 per kilometre on fuel consumption of three
litres/100 kilometres (equal to 94 mpg imp) truly outstanding even for an
ultra-compact city car, on the one hand, combined with the performance of a
super sports car and acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in
just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph) plus, and a lap
time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT,
on the other.
Ferrari 458 Challenge on the track
Ferrari has publicly unveiled the 458 Challenge at the Bologna Motor Show.
Built for the company's single-racing series, the Challenge features a race
suspension (with solid aluminum bushings, stiffer springs, and single-rate
dampers), Brembo CCM2 brakes (from the 599XX), and 19-inch wheels with
Pirelli tires. Furthermore, to reduce weight, the car has been outfitted
with thinner body panels, carbon fiber components, and Lexan windows.
Power is provided by a 4499cc V8 engine that produces 570 PS (562 hp / 419
kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. While this is the same as the 458
Italia, engineers modified the dual-clutch gearbox and installed 'F1-Trac'
(traction control) with settings for wet and dry conditions. Thanks to all
these changes, the 458 Challenge can lap the Fiorano test circuit in 1
minute, 16.5 seconds.
