Porsche 918 RSR Racer

new porsche 918 rsr unveiled detroit auto show
Porsche unveiled their latest creation today at the Detroit Auto Show: the 918 RSR Racer which is a hard-top, race version of the 918 Spyder Concept car.  The RSR is a hybrid racer powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine producing 563 horses plus two electric motors at the front wheels which put the total HP output to 767.  There's only one seat with a flywheel accumulator located where the passenger seat would be, which is used to store breaking energy and allows to driver to reuse as an on-track "turbo" button.  We can't wait to see the car in competition.
