The Porsche 918 Spyder is equipped with two electric motors, 156 bhp at the front and 129 bhp at the rear. It can be operated in all-electric mode for around 12 miles. When the electric power is added to the 608 bhp from the 4.6 Litre V8, a total power of 893 bhp is available.
Not too many years ago, electric and hybrid cars were regarded as being rather quirky, their main purpose being to deliver performance and practicality approaching that of a conventional internal combustion engine powered vehicle coupled with very low emission levels. They were therefore considered to be acceptable for use as “city cars” and favoured by those who placed more emphasis on their green credentials than on driver satisfaction and enjoyment. The Toyota Prius Hybrid first appeared twenty years ago and has been a popular eco-friendly choice ever since but small green cars such as these have never really caught the imagination of the wider motoring public, especially the true petrol-heads who invariably favour the sound of a screaming Ferrari V12 over the click and whine of an electric motor.

Excellent Car, Good handling and quite quick! good. Perfect family car comfortably fits 4 passengers. Achieved MPG 40 over the weekend. More hi-tech features than its Porsche rival. Its eye catching design is hard to miss out.Its sleek and stylish throughout the vehicle
We rented the 1.5 diesel for a holiday in Ireland and it was the highlight of my trip as it was so lovely to drive and Nippy once in 2nd gear. I was used to driving a low sports car so this was a big change for me. So much so that when I cam back to the UK I went straight the Dealer and ordered a New One! They recommended that I go for a petrol engine as I do lots of short journeys so I chose the 1.2 and cant believe how fast it goes.
Very comfortable, good adjustable height and rake seats, heated seats, good towing vehicle, pulls trailer complete with 2 horses and various tack and accessories needed effortlessly, and pretty good on mpg when towing. Carries 7 passengers with ease and when only up to 5 passengers plenty of room in boot for lots of luggage or 2 dogs (one is a Great Dane)
The performance exhaust is a must have and the soundtrack on this little hatchback is fantastic – pops, crackles and bangs on full load with no drone when cruising at motorway speeds. The handling is sharp and lively although the ride is harsh when you’re simply ferrying family around and not gunning down Porsches. Fuel economy is great for the performance – I’ve easily hit 40+ mpg on dull drives and on spirited drives it only drops to about 23 mpg which, for the performance, is great. The gearbox is great when rushing through the gears but can be slow and hesitant at slow city speeds – the huge twin scroll turbo can be a bit laggy when pulling away from roundabouts with 1/4 throttle but when you mash your right foot down, the pick up is fantastic. The performance is ballistic and it handles 4 adults with ease. The brakes are confidence inspiring and the level of grip is really good. As always, the 19″ alloy option looks better but the 18″ wheel gives a better ride. The info screen looks like an afterthought but the AMG sports seats and carbon weave interior looks really good.
Honestly this is a quick car. Feels torquey and quick. The engine is really not that responsive and there is definitely lag but it pulls hard. I have only been going to 5.5K and like 40-50% throttle but it’s satisfying. It’s fast enough for public streets and with a tune it would be a monster. I really like the low speed burbles. Cruising in a parking lot everyone is like wtf when they see what it’s coming from. Fun times. I haven’t pushed this car hard on public streets
The car is great to drive, handles almost like a sports car and has great acceleration. It’s also quiet and refined. It’s a 5 seater and ideal for me, my wife and daughter, but might be a bit small with a young family. Leather is nice as is the panoramic glass roof and LED interior lighting
An absolute belter of a hot hatch! It sounds simply incredible – a step up from the Golf R I had last month. I liked it so much i’ve just put in an order for one 🙂
I previous tried an RS6 from Classic Parade, so I didn’t hesitate when I saw the offer to hire the R8 for the bank holiday. Cracking car, handles really well – tonnes of grip but will let you have fun if you know what you’re doing. Thanks again guys!
I never thought I would see the day where I would be driving a Lambo SUV! Pigs really do fly. The biggest change: you can see out of the rear window!!!
I am actually rather impressed by this car, I wasn’t expecting much given their heritage, but they have certainly given it a good go! Would still have an X5 longterm, however..
The new SVR is a big step up in terms of quality and refinement. I previously rented the 2014 model, which felt nice enough but was starting to lack behind the german competition. JLR have upped their game and this is now again a serious car fighting against the Q’s and the X’s. Best of british.
