“The latest test vehicle is now turning laps in the legendary Martini Racing look of many historic Porsche race cars, particularly from the 1970s,” Porsche said in a statement. “More than nearly any other race car design, the Martini Racing look quickly attained cult status in those times and is still in vogue today. Martini was already the official partner of the Porsche factory team between 1973 and 1978.”
Porsche has confirmed that the 918 Spyder will produce 770-hp with a 0 to 62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of more than 200 mph. Fuel-economy should come in around 3 liters/100km or 78.4 mpg US.
