Hybrid super cars

918 Spyder: Porsche and BMW unveil hybrid supercars that are built for racing | Mail Online

I saw this on Top Gear the other day.

Quote:
When let loose around the famous racing circuit, Porsche said that the 918 Spyder completed the 12.8 mile track in just six minutes and 57 seconds.

The hybrid car shaved 14 seconds off the previous Nurburgring record for a street-legal car, making it the fastest super car built for normal roads to race the course.

From what I can tell they are comparing electric mode to the Prius in normal mode.

The explaining is that the Prius can be had for $25k whereas the Porsche is 20x that.

For the price tag of 537,000, the car should never need fuel and come with a full time mechanic in the trunk.

If I recall right (and I can't find the article anymore, so it's probably hearsay), they had to start the lap from a different point to maximize the amount of electric boost they got from the hybrid system. Timing from the "regular" starting point meant they didn't have enough boost where it did the most good.

Fantastic car, but consider that it runs out of battery by the end of the first lap...

Then there's the McLaren P1, also a hybrid, and about 10 or more seconds faster than the Porsche.

Not that Nurb lap times mean anything.
