The Porsche 918 Spyder has been sold out for months but that hasn't stopped the company from releasing a new promotional video for the high-performance roadster.

In the latest clip, we get behind the wheel with Porsche 918 head instructor Matthias Hoffsummer as he sets an unofficial production car lap record of 1:38:02 at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit in Australia.

While the video doesn't have any commentary, the 918 Spyder has a plug-in hybrid powertrain that consists of a 4.6-liter V8 engine, two electric motors and a 6.8 kWh lithium-ion battery.  This setup enables the model to produce a combined maximum output of 887 PS (652 kW) 1,280 Nm (944 lb-ft) of torque.  In terms of performance, the Porsche 918 Spyder can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 345 km/h (214 mph).
