The Porsche 918 Spyder was spotted testing on the Nurburgring by our spy photographers a few days back, and now a video has surfaced that lets us see, and hear the new supercar.

Powered by a 4.6-liter V8 based on the engine found in the original RS Spyder LMP2 race car, the latest from Porsche promises 770 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque from its gas engine and electric motors. It takes the corner in the video with precision, and it sounds quite formidable.

Dressed in Martini race livery, the 918 looks race ready, and will be offered with a sports performance track pack on to boost the performance of the standard car.
