There are few places in the world where something like this can be done. One is the Autobahn. Another is the Isle of Man, while the third is the unrestricted roads of Australia’s Northern Territory, a 200-mile stretch of highway. If you still have any doubts as to whether or not a hybrid can also be a supercar, you’re about to put them to rest for good. Why’s that? Well, let’s look at what the 918 did Down Under: it accelerated from 37 mph to 217 mph in just 40 seconds.
Whoa, wait, what? 217 mph? That’s right, the 918 hit a top speed of 217 mph. That’s supposedly a new world record but we’re still waiting for official confirmation. In the meantime, check out the 918 unleashed in the video ahead.
