Ingo (27) won this amazing prize in a competition hosted on the Porsche Facebook page to celebrate the landmark of reaching 10 million Facebook fans worldwide. Now, he will visit a series of top cultural and motoring landmarks from the unique vantage point of the cockpit of the epochal 918 Spyder.

At each stage on the car’s 1,000 km journey, Porsche owners and enthusiasts will be invited to sign the car as a memento of its historic trip. The 918 Spyder will be joined by a Cayenne S E-Hybrid and Panamera S E-Hybrid, underlining the pre-eminent position of Porsche as the only premium marque offering three plug-in hybrid cars.

The 918 Spyder – the fastest production car ever to lap Autocar magazine’s road test circuit – will drive from central London and tour through Oxford, Wales and the Cotswolds before finishing at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone. The route has been chosen to demonstrate the power and efficiency of Porsche E-Hybrid technology, the ultimate expression of Porsche Intelligent Performance.

To encourage people to share in this special moment, the car has been specially wrapped so it can be signed at stops during the journey.

The choice of Bourton-on-the-Water as a stopping point was inspired by the Facebook competition. Fans were asked to identify the country and location of a landscape photograph, and the closest guess won this amazing ‘once in a lifetime’ experience.

Featuring a bespoke 608 hp 4,593cc V8 petrol engine supported by a 115 kW electric motor driving the rear axle, and a 95 kW electric motor powering the front wheels, the 918 Spyder produces a total output of 887 hp. This power offers the potential for acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 secs and a top speed of 214 mph. Such blistering performance is combined with the potential to accelerate to 93 mph in pure electric drive mode, and fuel economy of up to 94 mpg with emissions as low as 70 g/km CO2. Built in a limited series of 918 examples priced from €781,155, every example of the carbon fibre two-seater 918 Spyder has been sold.



  1. I too was guilty of loading up my tray with as it saved me the trouble
    of returning to the buffet tables for seconds. I wouldn’t say I’m unconditionally loving,
    however I consistently work toward it. I was
    amazed by the power of the mind, the power of Spirit.
