Porsche 918 Spyder - 1:43 Scale Model Car
To most consumers, the words "plug-in hybrid" might conjure up images of practical, boring grocery-getters. To car enthusiasts, however, those same words denote the ultimate in hypercar performance: the Porsche 918 Spyder. Featuring a 4.6-liter gasoline-powered V8 working in conjunction with two electric motors, the carbon-fiber 918 can reach sixty miles per hour from a standing start in 2.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 210 miles per hour. So prodigious is the 918's performance, it was the first production car to lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in under seven minutes. Spark Models' 1:43-scale replica of the Porsche 918 Spyder evokes the furious performance of the real thing in exacting detail, featuring numerous photo-etched components, an incredibly accurate interior, and a faithfully rendered body. Finished in an intriguing forest green, the Spark 918 is a beautiful, essential addition to any collection of scale-model hypercars.
