Visualize for a minute that you are immensely wealthy and has enough dollars in your bank to take the wheels of your own Porsche 918 Spyder wearing a price tag of $845,000. You can further visualize that of all the places you are in Finland with your priced possession. Go a little further there it is the winter season, and you lay yours hands on a customized 6- mm metal spiked studded winter tires to get hold of the ice when your Porsche rides on snow.
So, what will you do? You would get out of your place with your oddly equipped Porsche and gather your camera-wielding friends to the nearest lake thick with frozen ice. There you will register the slowest sideways lap by a 918 Spyder ever. You will grin from ear to ear while doing that. Well, this kind of dreams doesn’t become realities and can be only lived in a daydream. Interestingly the video on the YouTube reveals that someone had gone and done it.
Cars like Porsche 918 Spyder are not made too often, and the present scene is full of high-performance car like the mentioned. We would like to recall that the swiftest production car made in 2008 was the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, and it smashed the 0-60mph mark in just 2.5 seconds and it took just 10.1 seconds to cross the quarter mile barrier.
Along comes the Porsche 918 and it crushes the record in just 2.2 seconds and zapped the quarter-mile in just 9.8 seconds, that was quick-lightening, and it beats the million dollar vehicle comprehensively. When you consider it from a viewpoint, the difference of 0.3 seconds is what takes you to blink your eyes. As speed timings lessen the gain percentage for their deltas, become bigger, so the third of a second of the 918 was a significant edge over the Bugatti supercar, and it was a resounding achievement. Now you will be seeing the Spyder running in slow motion sideways on the ice.
