Porsche 918 Weissach package

The Porsche 918 may be gone, but it isn't forgotten. The hybrid hypercar hit the scene in 2013, and though it stuck around for just two years, made a name for itself against rivals like the LaFerrari and the McLaren P1.

At a cost of $845,000 when new, it was relatively affordable in a class of million-dollar MSRPs. More used models are showing up online, and they are far from cheap. A pristine 918 Spyder with the Weissach package – is up for sale on MotorGT.com for a hefty $2.19 million. With legendary Martini livery, the handsome hypercar has more than $85,000 worth of options.
Things like magnesium Spyder wheels, lighter brakes, ceramic wheel bearings, titanium chassis bolts, and a bunch aerodynamic aids.
The odometer stands at 45 original miles (72 kilometers) – delivery miles, to be precise. The 4.6-liter hybrid V8, produces a whopping 887 horsepower and 944 pound-feet of torque.

Paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive, the 918 is capable of sprinting to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds.
