Nico Rosberg hot lap in the Porsche 918

2y ago

F1 Champ takes the Porsche Hybrid for a hot lap around the Silverstone F1 Track - and it is fast! The 918 was designed to push the boundaries of hybrid performance as far as possible. I think Porsche have succeeded. The 918 power comes from a V8 petrol engine coupled with front and rear electric motors. This provides a whopping 875bhp and 1,280Nm hitting the 100kmh mark at just 2.5 seconds. Oh, and it looks good as well.

  • For a f1 driver to have that kind of reaction on launch, it must be ludicrous fast.

  • Seems a bit ill mannered. He's snapping that steering wheel like it's trying to kill him đŸ˜³

  • Nico said it achieves 2.5s/100kmh but Porsche performance engineer said 2.8s/100kmh... and also 275hp in drivetribes write up and Porsche engineer again with a different figure...
