The perfection of this beast brings tears to my eyes…
She is so beautiful my goodness words can not express!
This gives me another good reason to start saving.
Porsche has definitely stepped up their game to a whole new level.
Not to mention Porsche has set a new high bar for the Exotic class.

Porsche 918 RSR Hybrid Race-Car Specs:
V8 6.2 Liter
Revs @ 10,300 RPM
Porsche has rolled out a race-bred version of the company’s 918 Spyder Concept at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. Packing the same drivetrain as the track-proven 911 GT3 R Hybrid race car, Porsche says that the 918 RSR will bring a whopping 767 combined horsepower to the party when it shows up in the paddock. A total of 563 of those ponies are provided by a 6.2-liter V8 that revs to an atmospheric 10,300 rpm. Porsche has partnered its beastly eight-pot with two electric motors capable of 75 kilowatts of juice positioned at each front wheel.
The 918 RSR stores braking energy in a flywheel accumulator stationed where the passenger seat would traditionally rest, and the tech allows the driver to summon up an extra bump in power for passing or acceleration. The pilot can command the boost in grunt for up to eight seconds.
Like the 918 Concept, the bones of the 918 RSR are built of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, and the body was penned to pay respect the legendary racers like the 917 short-tail. Hit the jump for the press release.
At the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Porsche debuted their latest concept, the Porsche 918 RSR. Taking proven technology from the race-track with the GT3 R Hybrid, the 918 RSR utilized a flywheel energy recovery system for added power and traction.

She defines true beauty doesn’t she?
I’ve never been such a huge Porsche fan till I picked up my M5.
I am starting to understand and appreciate Porsche cars into my life…
My next car must be a Porsche!
Preferably a Porsche GT3 RS.
