Jay Leno had the great chance to drive one of the very first production-spec Porsche 918 Spyder and showcased it in the latest episode of his web series. In the video Daniel Eastman of Porsche North America walks Jay through the hybrid supercar.

As we have already mentioned, the German sports vehicle features a plug-in hybrid powertrain that consists of a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 engine, two electric motors and a 6.8 kWh lithium-ion battery. The engine produces 608 HP (447 kW) and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft) of torque, while the motors contribute 156 HP (115 kW) and 129 HP (95 kW). This setup enables the car to have a combined maximum output of 887 HP (661 kW) and more than 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque.
