We already know everything there is to know about the Porsche 918 Spyder and we all agree its Stuttgart’s finest piece of engineering yet. That’s why we can’t get enough of this V-8-powered hybrid and drool over any 918 Spyder-related footage we lay our eyes upon. This time around, there’s no test drive or quarter-mile race, but a 0-to-207 mph run that puts the German supercar within four mph of its claimed top speed. What’s really impressive is that the 918 Spyder takes only 29 seconds to charge to 207 mph from a standing start, yet another benchmark added to its staggering performance credentials, which include a 0-to-60-mph time of only 2.8 seconds.

As a brief reminder, Porsche’s latest supercar is powered by a 4.6-liter, V-8 engine connected to two electric motors. The combo cranks out 887 horsepower and an amazing 940 pound-feet of torque. This drivertrain may generate less horsepower than those fitted in the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1, but make no mistakes, the 918 Spyder is just as fast.

If you need further proof, Sport Auto’s video above is enough to showcase the 918’s capabilities when the hammer falls on the gas pedal.

Hit the play button to enjoy the speed and the roar of that incredible V-8 engine!
