On June 19, 2015 the production of the supercar Porsche 918 Spyder has ended after only 918 copies. The two-seater with its supplemented by two electric motors gasoline brought a system output of 652 kW / 887 hp to the road. For the model carmaker Minichamps but the Porsche 918 is still an important pillar in our sales program, appear to still more new products. Now brings Minichamps with the 918 Spyder with Weissach package a limited edition of only 300 units variant which is painted in white and prototypically differs by visible carbon parts of the standard models. The new model car is to have under item no CA04316009 and is priced slightly higher than the prices for standard models. Because of the very scarce worldwide limitation it is still a must-have for Porsche and Porsche 918 fans.
What is the Weissach package?
this question arises again and again: What exactly is in the Weissach package and what exactly is it? Quite simply, it is a package in which the 918 weight-optimized is delivered; It was designed to enhance driving dynamics. Even at first glance are either inspired also to the colors and the design of legendary Porsche race car correspondingly modified super sports car. Roof, rear wing, rear view mirrors and the windscreen frame made of visible carbon fiber. Parts of the interior are covered with Alcantara instead of leather and visible carbon fiber replaced many aluminum. Noise insulation is reduced. Particularly lightweight magnesium wheels reduce unsprung weight, the total weight is reduced by around 35 kilograms. This pays off in further improved driving dynamics.
More quotes from racing are six-point harnesses for driver and front passenger, optional elimination of the paint in favor of a foliation and additional aerodynamic parts in carbon fiber. The tires of the 918 Spyder in Weissach also package with the standard, specially developed for the 918 Michelin tires. Minichamps has delegated that features perfectly to the model. Of course, the replicas of the wheels is not made of magnesium, but made of conventional plastic. But the appearance fits; especially in the area of ??visible carbon parts. As usual with the models in die cast zinc in this size, doors and hoods are closed. That appearance and look of the design compared to the model are absolutely correct, we already know from previously published 918-model cars made by Minichamps.
The key data to the 918
Once again, as a reminder, on the drive: The 918 Spyder is powered by a V8 engine with 4.6 liters, which provides 447 kW / 608 hp. This must be added the horsepower, which emit the two electric motors: The electric motor on the front axle controls 95 kW / 129 hp, which added to the rear axle 115 kW / 156 hp to the overall package. The base price of the 918 Spyder was 768,026.00 Euro; for a weight-optimized vehicle with Weissach package calculated Porsche 839,426.00 Euro. Since the collector with the 99.95 euros for the rare model car that we have presented here, but better off.
