Late this year, German supercar maker Porsche will unveil its most powerful supercar ever, but with one crucial difference. The supercar in question will also be one of the most efficient supercars that Porsche has ever produced with a stupendous mileage figure of about 33 Kmpl. Now, for a car that delivers 770 Bhp of peak power, this mileage figure is simply as exhilarating as the performance this supercar will deliver.

The hybrid credentials of the 2013 Porsche 918 have a lot to do with the stellar power and economy figures, which could revolutionize the world of supercars.

The 2013 Porsche 918 Hybrid supercar will feature a 4.6 Liter V8 petrol engine with dry sump lubrication. This engine will be mounted in the middle of the car making the Porsche 918 Spyder a mid engined supercar. The engine will produce a peak power of 570 Bhp. Apart from internal combustion power, the 918 Spyder will use electric motors for a further 200 Bhp. In total, the supercar will produce no less than 770 Bhp.

While one electric motor will sit on the front axle, the other will rest at the rear axle of the car, for optimum weight distribution. The electric motors will be juiced by lithium ion batteries forming a part of the plug-in hybrid system.

With the petrol V8 engine and the electric motors working in tandem, the Porsche 918 Spyder will accelerate to 100 Kph from standstill in a blinding 3 seconds, going all the way up to a top speed of 325 Kph. On electric power along, the Porsche Spyder will have a top speed of 150 Kph and a range of 25 Kms. Also, the Carbon Di-Oxide emitted every Km is a low 70 grams, making the 918 Spyder one of the least emitting supercars in the world.

Production of thus supercar will kick off sometime in the end of 2012, and a limited quantity is expected to be produced.

Also, the 2013 Porsche 918 Spyder will use some trick technology, that could eventually be used on the other Porsche cars like a carbon fiber reinforced polymer(CFRP) based monocoque, fully adaptive aerodynamics, adaptive rear-axle steering and the upward-venting top pipes exhaust system. When launched, the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid supercar will take on the upcoming Ferrari F70 supercar that also features hybrid credentials with a KERS system. The racing version of the Porsche 918, called the RSR, incidentally uses KERS instead of plug-in hybrid electric motors.
