Porsche 918 RSR
Porsche has announced the 918 RSR, which was unveiled at the North American Auto Show in Detroit.
The car is a two-seat mid-engined Coupe featuring technologies from both 911 GT3 R Hybrid race car and 918 Spyder concept.
Porsche 918 RSR is powered by mighty V8 engine with 563HP at 10 300RPM. However, the sports car also has two electric motors on the front wheels with total power of 150kW (204HP). This means that 918 RSR has 767HP.
The power is transmitted to the road through 6-speed speed constant-mesh transmission with longitudinally-mounted shafts. The gears are changed by shift paddles behind the racing steering wheel.
The equipment features air intake in the roof between the wing doors, the quick-action latches on the front and rear CFRP lids, the two roof-mounted aerials for pit radio and telemetry, the small, lateral front aerodynamic flics akin to those seen on the RS Spyder, the air splitters beneath the front lip, or the racing slick tyres on 19" wheels with single centre locking nut.
