The production version of the Porsche 918 Spyder won’t be arriving on the market until September 2013, but in a not surprising turn of events, what appears to be the official brochure of the model has surfaced on the internet. Next to a series of new images, this leaked brochure also offers a few more details on the next 918 Spyder.

It looks like the 918 Spyder will deliver a total of 800 HP (and not 720 HP as previously rumored) thanks to a hybrid system that will combine a 580 HP V8 engine with three electric motors. With a total weight of just 3659 lbs, the 918 Spyder will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in just 8 seconds. It will also only consume 3 liters per 100 kilometers.

Porsche will also be offering a "Weissach Package" that will drop about 77 lbs from the car’s total weight. This package will include dive planes for the front and rear, a lightweight braking system, the elimination of the armrests and storage in the doors, and Alcantara or carbon fiber trim. As an option, Porsche will also offer a Special Liquid Metal Grey or Blue exterior paint and two special liveries: Martini and White/Red.

I am glad that this Car’s pictures and details are leaked. Actually it’s one of the car that I am curious about. Finally I know things about it and it’s really cool.

Whatta nice car, very sophisticated yet sporty at the same time. I’d suggest a red rims for this one so it looks totally sick!

Wow, my favorite Posche car. It is really cool. The polished grey look is very classy.

Well that’s pretty good compare to other hybrid cars that are low in performance. You can surely expect more from Porsche.

I know it has a look of the McLaren, but this one is certainly cooler than it. I love it being exotic, and I’m sure that this one will perform good on the sales.
