A few days ago, we brought you a new series of spy shots for the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder and today, two new videos have popped up that show the car in action at the famous Nurburgring race track. These two videos may be short, but they do provide a good idea as to how cool the 918’s engine sounds.

As a reminder, the 918 Spyder will be powered by a race-derived 4.6-liter V8 engine combined with two electric motors for a total output of 762 HP and 552 lb-ft of torque. The model will be offered with "spectacular solutions such as a full carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque with unit carrier, fully adaptive aerodynamics, adaptive rear-axle steering, and the upward-venting ’top pipes’ exhaust system." Sales will begin at the end of 2013 at a starting price of $845,000.

Hit the jump for the second video.

This video is fitted for people who are sporty because some of its performance can be seen in this video.

It has a lighter weight, and that’s why it gained an extra speed.

@Carlo_Oldham: I agree. I think this car is the most aggressive Spyder models.

Now on this video, I’ve seen the wholeness of the Spyder. I must say that it is sportier and aggressive towards all Spyder models.

Its performance is more than we least expected. It also has light weight with the use of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic as its chassis.

@Thiruselvam: It’s not sporty only on its performance, but also on all aspects.

It’s sporty in appearance and performance. At least, we expect it already. And I think Porsche won’t disappoint us with this one.
